Default Model 13-4 .357mag 3"

I am thinking about listing this locally for sale. I have a Model 13 3" .357mag, blueing excelent 98-99%, comes with Rosewood factory bootgrip style grips and Hogue finger grips. Can someone give me a price range that I might be able to get for it?
Thanks

Any custom work other than hammer?

Also location plays a role.

Not sure about any custom work as I bought it used. I know some Model 13's come with a bobbed hammer. I am in oregon.
Thanks

I have a similar 13-3 3" with bobbed hammer. I concur with the $450 to $500 estimates.

I would advise you to hang on to it. It does not, and likely will not, get much better than that in a concealed carry revolver. Regards 18DAI.

What a splendid gun! I suspect you'll regret selling it.

I paid $350 out-the-door for this one about two months ago, with the original grips, not the ones pictured on it. But, that was highly unusual and a very cheap price. Yours is a nice gun, but that box is not the original, the grips are not original, it has a heavy turn line, and probably has aftermarket work which in many cases does not add value. I'd say in the $450 range, but you won't get that at the typical gunshop. It would have to be from someone who knows and appreciates the 3" model, maybe someone from this forum.

Wish you weren't so far away. My next purchase is going to be a 13 or 65 with 3 inch barrel. I'd love to give your a closer look.

I could be wrong about that box. Upon further review, a 13-4 could have been shipped in plastic, I learned from looking at the book. Looks like the 13-4 was in production for 10 years from 1988 to 1998. Nice gun!

Edited to add: Cool, show everybody a picture of your other M13!!
