A lot of bids for this old beatup 39. Not my cup of tea.

Hello peter, Im sure the ole girl would shoot like a bandit. If you charge the chamber from the mag, and clean. $500 at the door just a bit high for this old boy.

Mike,

By the time you add nigh on to $75 (or even more) for a proper, early magazine, plus the cost of transfer and shipping, that gun in that condition was no bargain! I think your final bid would have been about as high as I would have thought of going. I'm guessing somebody just had to have a "real" pre-dash Model 39. It would fill a slot, but not very spectacularly. JMHO of course, and YMMV.

Froggie

Six months ago you could get a extremely nice one for about $400 - $450, often with the box and an extra magazine. I was in the market for one then so I was familiar with the going prices.

Definitely not worth $475 plus shipping, FFL fee, and whatever state and local taxes and fees come to. Did anyone notice the one picture that showed the spot where the back of the hammer shank hits the receiver tang? Looks like a well defined and fairly deep depression in that spot. That is a sure indicator of lots of rounds through this pistol. I'm not talking a couple thousand, I'm think in terms of 10,000 plus. Without a magazine and given the wear and use, this is a $200 pistol at best. Whoever got it, may soon have buyer's remorse.

6 months to a year from now, this same gun could easily bring $650 or more.
