Trade S&W for Colt

New SAA - 2500

Lightly used on all of mine for trade. The S&W were both bought in the last 2 years so current model. Rough numbers below.
Gun | Price
357 700
44 700
3030 700
12g 400
FYI retail new prices vs used resell prices is quite different. Even lightly used.
I've never paid $700 for used S&W .357, but I did pick up a lightly used S&W Model 66-2 for $500.
Also Colt's retain their value better than most other guns for all values. Seen plenty Colt SAA's sell for $2000 as used guns.(I used to work the used guns section at Cabela's)

If you want an SAA bad I'd try a Ruger Vaquero new they run about $650-$700 or a good Uberti copy for less(though they are a closer copy than the Ruger).
Aside from owning one by the original maker I don't see the point of going with Colt these days for 1911's or SAA's, mostly because $2000-$2500 can get you a whole lot more than one gun. Personally I wouldn't drop that kind of dough on one gun unless it is extremely rare/uncommon.
I know I just have a thing for colt. Had an Uberti. I got ammo to use for both revolvers. Guess I'll go shoot and see how I feel. That was my Clint theme. I have a couple of Colt ARs and a couple 1911s. Would maybe like a steel Defender. Be nice to downsize. I just want the classic revolver. Maybe a Winchester 44 lever action. I love that 30-30. It was my first rifle and I shoot best with it. I guess I was going for standard in some categories. 30-06 Winchester, Browning over and under are a couple of others I have.

No interest in 9mm.

Which exact models are your S&W revolvers? 29-2, etc. Barrel length, finish, original stocks or aftermarket, box, papers present? Modifications to sights? Those details make all the difference.
