Tyrannosaurus Rex was a pretty nasty dinosaur.

I think revolvers will be around for quite a while. At least until the next large meteor hits.
The $6k example was once sneezed on by Elmer Keith. Either that, or it was a NIB 5-screw...

When I was on a roll with s&w n frames my LGS had a nib traded in s&w m29-10, 6.5”, blue. It was still unshot. With blue case, presentation wooden case, paperwork for $699.

My other LGS had all the n frames for $699 nib. I made three passes buying up nickel. I went back for more the case was empty. Stupid me I had three credit cards on me paid off. I regret not buying more.

Wanting and looking for a m57/6” nickel started this.

At a buck a round for 9mm, 1.40 for 44's seems pretty reasonable.

It seems like revolvers are sitting in the cases at the LGS's around here. The prices are right around what they were last Spring. M&P's, H&K's, FN's, Sigs and the other wonder guns come in one door and go out the other. I don't think the people buying them even ask how much. They just hand a credit card and take the gun. Around here the only Glock's for non LE had to be made before 1994. They come on the market rarely and last about a nano second. It's not just guns. Everything's wacked out these days. Try to order a car that's not on a lot someplace.

You can even sell .40 guns like G23 and M&P40 quickly in this market, if you don't overcharge. People just want guns.

For those who are middle to upper class who have been able to benefit from this cheap keynesian money printed from nowhere, the purchasing spree has been unprecedented.

Due to the money supply, and the real level of inflation, we won't be seeing prices drop unless there is an all out depression that leaves people desperate to sell assets in order to eat.
any chance you could show this same chart going back to 1980?

thanks

Ive noticed the crazy price jumps on Model 29s as well. 686's are seeing the same thing. It's nuts out there.

LOL. Check into Guns International sometime for an eye opener on what dealers are selling 29s for. The 29-3 is now not unusual at $2000,and 29-2s at $2500. They have gone up roughly 40% in the last year.Pre 29s are holding their own,but its the 2s and 3s that are getting crazy

I blame you guys for this. Educating us common folk to the beauty of these old revolvers. I was a victim myself just yesterday.

I definitely didn’t get a deal on it but I do believe it was a better investment then gold, silver or Bitcoin.
