You didn't say what they were asking for it.
Based on my Gunbroker "research"... $2,500 seems like a fair market priceIt's a blued finish.
It all depends on what "local" is for you. Gunbroker, like mentioned in many other threads, covers a broader spectrum of possible buyers as compared to anyone's local market. So a 98-99% 6" Blue may bring $1,600 locally, the same gun may bring $500 more due to the larger market on the internet. A lot of variables anyway you look at it. But I believe a lot of the gentlemen on this forum would agree when I say, If you like it (and can afford it) buy it for YOU, not for the "fair market value". And if you buy it, and don't like it, you can always post it for sale in the forum classifiedsThank you, Nate...the range of prices is interesting. I've seen 2 Pythons, both 6" blued all-original models about 97-98%, sell locally for about $1,500-$1,600 in the last 3 months. Neither had boxes or paperwork. I know there were fewer 8" models made, but I would not have thought the extra 2" would command such a substantially higher price.
