Default Newbie question

My LGS has an online site that I can order from and get free shipping and no FFL. This revolver is on that site. Would something like this one I am looking at be a collector's item one day? Would it at least keep it's value?

I have no idea, but you'd be ready to be a 'heavy' character in the Mad Max reprise! Go for it!!!! Hey, it's just money and you can live on water for days.

The best of nothing. Not a revolver you can easily carry or hide and not a rifle you can shoulder fire. You're not likely to find the ammo at Wallace-World either.

There's a collector out there for anything you can think of, but if you buy this....you may be the only one doing the collecting.

I don't think it will be a collectors item. It is not part of a small run, and likely a very large percentage of these that are purchased will be very lightly fired, probably used once or twice.

Why do you want this gun? Because it looks cool? Because you want to invest in a collectible gun? Do you shoot large game at long ranges?

Regardless of the price, there will be minimal demand for such a hand cannon in that configuration. Search Gunbroker and such and you will find prices on 460's all over the place. Just has a very limited market and not hard to find. When I bought my 500, I went into it knowing it would never bring a premium and all barrel lengths were available for the asking. BUT I wanted one and enjoy shooting it!
