    Up for sale is my Smith & Wesson model 59 that is new, unfired and still in the original box with all the paperwork, warranty card, parts list, etc. This piece was produced in 1976 and belong to a law enforcement officer. It was ordered and shipped with the special dress presentation grips that were used for ceremonial purposes. That is why there are two sets of grips. The pistol was never used and was kept in a safe until he passed away. I bought it from the son of the owner. This pistol is prestine and is still in the wax paper along with two 14 round magazines. No rust, no blemishes and no defects. This is one fantastic piece that I hate to sell, but looking at another piece to invest in. This pistol needs a new home with someone who can appreciate it as well.

    Smith& Wesson model 59 Mfg 1971-1980
    Barrel length - 4 inches
    Weight - 30 oz.

    That would be nice. Nickel would add about $200 to the price according to the gun blue book value. There is a NIB blued 59 on gunbroker starting at $ 725 without the presentation grips plus shipping and the dreaded tax. :mad: But I'm open to reasonable offers. ;)

    Naw, Bluebook of GunValues lists Nickel as a $50 add-on. Just way prettier.

    I may have mis-interpreted the notes in my book. I know that this piece at 100% lists for $550. I lowered it to $625. I thought being that this is unfired, with the box and all paperwork and the special grips warranted another $75. I guess we'll see. Thanks for the information.

    It seems to me that it's a buyers market and I don't know why.

    I agree. I don't know why either. I'm not over pricing my pieces. I dropped it to $575. We'll see what happens I guess.
