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.

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.

I bought a 29-2 (pre hole), 6 1/2" barrel factory wood grips four years ago for $800. Guess I should hang on to it.

What goes up must come down. Artificial duel panic on guns. Politics and CV19, the sky is falling, the sky is falling. The prices wouldn’t be so high if Dick Weeds didn’t run them up. Everyone who proudly displays their hoards of $50@ box 9mms is going to be down in the jaws when this is over. The good news is most of the chicken little crowd has plenty of toilet paper.

I wish I could predict the future, but experience has taught me I can not. I was reading a multi-page S&W thread on another forum not long ago, and it was full of doom and gloom for S&W stock prices and gun sales. I was very confused until I noticed someone had resurrected a thread from 2014!

I do believe in the bird in the hand concept, and if I didn't hate selling in general, and I wasn't so lazy, this is surely an excellent time to sell.

Next year I don't know. A thousand different events could occur that would make it a better or worse time to sell. I like money fine, and I definitely don't have an excess of it, but I just feel a need to get rid of stuff. Then I hit that laziness roadblock.

I can do that one better! I got this 29-3 in 1987 brand new in box for $200! Dealer had about a pallet full of them.

I snagged a couple 629-4's just before the pandemic, standard 6" barrel, square and round butt. The SB is a December 2019 pawn shop find. I had been looking for one of these for ages and when one finally showed up in my backyard I jumped on it at $760 OTD after a brief negotiation. The RB came from Montana in February 2020 with a nice holster, $730 delivered. Both came with factory Hogue grips. Since then I have seen decent shooter grade 29/629's only occasionally in the local online classified priced from $950 to $1,400. My "pandemic" N frame purchase is a 29-5 MagnaClassic 7.5" found in the local online classified for $1,350. Today a 629 MagnaClassic 7.5" in cherrywood case with all the goodies was found in the same local classifieds priced at $1,800. It was gone within a couple hours of the post. (wow!)
