Default model 650 rarity

Is the model 650 a good collector investment at $800?

3” barrel?
What is condition? Does it include box, papers, tools, original grips?
How about some pictures?

I don't know but someone will be along shortly. The SCSW 4th says $850 for ANIB, but that is a few years old now. Does it come with the auxiliary .22 LR cylinder, box and tools? If so, that might make it a good value.


Hey VM! Our boys almost let it get away yesterday.

Go see what they are asking for them on Gunbroker. You will then get an idea and a surprise. At $800, it might be considered an absolute steal, no matter what SCSW says about them. There is one dealer who periodically advertises them for an astronomical amount.

If condition is good then probably a deal at $800 without box/extra cylinder etc. I passed on one at the last Symposium at $1100 and haven't seen one for sale locally since. If you want one to shoot I'd probably go with a 651 with adjustable sights and less money. If in good condition I'd buy it quickly at $800. Good luck.

Without any info about condition or what’s included your best bet would be to do some research as flintsghost said.

There is one on the big auction site listed as unfired in box with everything including the factory conversion cylinder starting at 1195.00. I recommend you keep an eye on it and see if the gun sells.

On a side note, I love mine, it’s the first revolver that both my sons learned to shoot with which was perfect because of J frame size and the .22lr conversion cylinder.

On a side, side note, I can’t speak of the gun without mentioning that it belonged to a close friend and fellow forum member IBSandy who passed way before his time.

All that said I would never sell this fine little revolver as it is destined to be a family heirloom which will be used to teach many generations to shoot.

Stay safe,
BB

I should have added a better description. This 650 is in unfired condition but owner never kept or lost box with paper work. No auxiliary cylinder.
Yes, it's 3" as were all model 650 revolvers.
Thanks to all. I reckon I will go ahead and invest in it. Thanks to all.

As described I'd buy it in a heartbeat at that price. If you shoot it, wear hearing protection, those 22 magnums are LOUD

Bought one when they were first introduced- I'm a J frame fan, but firing it at an indoor range I was surprised to note the amount of unburned power on the benchtop.
It would make a great psychological self defense weapon because the noise and muzzle flash was impressive! I ended up putting is down on a 36-6 when they were first introduced.
. Another case of a purchase too soon- the 60-4 came out shortly after which I would have preferred, but $$$ on the 60-4 have gone nuts- if you can find one. The .357 version does nothing for me, so the 36-6 with box and tools is carried gently as my woods walker.

That would be a good price in my area. They are neat guns to own and use. As mentioned, it is LOUD. The one on the left.

$800 is a no brainer. Highly collectible piece getting premo prices everywhere I've seen, and not just asking prices but SALE prices.
