I'd guess $1200-1400 in the top range. You and the seller have to agree what's fair. Good luck!

OP, you say correct sights, etc. is the revolver a 38/44 Heavy Duty (fixed sight) or 38/44 Outdoorsman (adjustable target sights)? Makes a difference in price.
You mentioned numbers matching target stocks so I assume that it’s the Outdoorsman. My mistake.

It was my understand that only the Service and Magna style stocks were matched to the revolver by serial number. Am I wrong in this?

Thanks all!

Not sure of the OP’s expertise, but just know that the gun would be a short action or pre-model # gun. And there is a history of serial number marked targets for 1950’s guns, mostly non-relieved and often not matching the gun they were on (read about 44 mag frames being repurposed from 1955 frames). And ‘’52 would be early for targets but possible.
