$1500+ (?)
They've been off of my radar for a little while.

Pretty much. They are sought after guns that go for a mint.

If the BSS is a field grade you might be in an even trade situation. I think $1500 is a little high on the 25-2, but unfired in presentation case put's it pretty close.

Default Pre 25

I just paid $1100 for this pre 25, S serial prefix, with no grips and is around a 90% gun! But it is my birthDAY gun! I made the case and put the cokes on it!

I believe I would want some boot if Browning was mine. Call me crazy but don’t call me stupid. I would look for $200- $300 boot.

Is it the .45 acp caliber that makes it that more expensive than the .45lc version?

Agree that your unfired BSS should bring additional $300 over the unfired Model 25-2.

I don't know about today's higher pricing, but I haven't changed my values on my guns simply because I think they'll come down a little when all the current "worries and troubles" slow down.

Another point currently would be you are going to pay a lot more for 45 acp ammo (and a BMT moon loader if you don't already have one) than your trading partner will have to pay for 12 ga shot shells.

My 25-2, 6-1/2", blue, patridge front sight Letters shipping Feb 14, 1972 and is a real sweet shooter. My gun (no case, no docs, no tools) is valued at $1,100 on my records and is at least a 95% gun....very tight lockup, throats are all decent without the oversize condition found in many others.

Good luck on the trade, post some pics of course if and when you get it. Who knows, maybe the 25-2 is one of the 1000 or so that were "mis-stamped" as Model of 1950, instead of Model of 1955...quite a bit scarcer I believe.

There should be a little premium in the BSS but, around here anyway, older S&W revolvers are much more in demand than Browning 12 gauge SXSs. More demand if it was a 20 gauge. . . About an even trade around here I think if you could find and S&W owner who wanted to make that trade. Good luck.

Personally I think you would have to give $$ to get the S&W, but I love S&W's and have too many shotguns now.

From what I've been seeing the last couple of years I would easily value my 98%+ example with so-so presentation box at around $1200 if I had to part with it, of which I don't have to thankfully. (I had about $400 in trade for it several years ago.)

But of course I could be a little bit partial to it.

Of course everything is a little higher now but I have followed these in the past. Have two. They frequently list for about $1300 but don't sell to fast, they aren't big movers. The ones I see selling go for around 11 to 12 but they may not be 99%. The ones going for 15 to 16 are there for a loooong time. Those are usually dealers that don't mind sitting on them for a while.

I stated it was so-so condition due to the crack. I didn't want to infer the case liner was in anywhere near as nice condition as the actual revolver. (But thank you for the kind words regarding both.)

While I am fortunate to own several really great condition revolvers this is one of the small handful that could qualify as "almost" unfired. I still say 98%+ just to leave a little wiggleroom for any of the smallest of imperfections.

I don't claim to own any 100% guns............but I have owned a few before shooting them!

One other point to mention is that S&W Commemorative's and Presentation Guns only appeal to a small portion of the collecting/shooting community. I think that sometimes they sit for a while waiting for the right buyer to come along. I would surmise that there are way more shooter types than collector types and many shooters aren't willing to pay big dollars for a highly collectible gun when they only plan to shoot it anyway.

My humble opinion and worth 10 times what you paid for it.

Here are some pics of the liners and additional items found under the liners. I carefully removed the yellow foam backing from the top liner and it looks mint on it's backside. The bottom liner, well not so much due to the taped crack just aft of the grip frame area and the wear at the rear sight area. (For the life of me I can't remember if the tape was already there when I purchased it.)

It looks as though a previous owner had a $1000 value hang tag on it at one time and considering the reusable style zip-tie is still present it most likely may have seen a gunshow or two prior to me trading for it. There was also a blued "ramrod" with aluminum jag and a knurled grip area present underneath. The original cleaning rod with also has a jag on it. Odd, but oh well and I have kept it with it just as it came to me.

While I don't feel as though they have went up a tremendous amount in value since I traded for it 8 to 10 years or so ago I was extremely pleased to obtain it for about $400 in trade............even if it doesn't necessarily fit my M1917 revolver collection in the strictest of sense.

jcelect, is the short strip of double-sided adhesive tape that holds the rectangular yellow foam piece to the back of the top liner something that is original?

Hate to say it, but out here the BSS would sit in a GS for a long time priced at $750. I would not make that trade without lots of boot. Your neck of the woods, Who knows.

It seems that a 98%, or better, example would not be unreasonably priced at an even grand.
Just the revolver, but only the faintest turn line and no other detracting marks. Stocks look pristine.
