Need help assessing value. Colt 1877 S&W 36 Chiefs

Post by s10black » Mon Aug 24, 2015 9:09 pm

If I can get an accurate value I would like to sell these two. Been on all the normal places. They are just all over the place on asking prices.

Colt 1877 .41 Shopkeeper. Mechanically everything is real good, bluing is all gone some patina but no serious pitting. serial Number 351xx. Serial number matches on all locations.

S&W Model 36 Chiefs Special. Wear on the bluing but in good shape. Serial number 6245xx says 1965-69. Mechanically this gun is ready to go. Pearl grips are cracked.

Going by the one photo of the S&W 36 I'd go around $300.
Colts I have no experience with them. They do have some crazy pricing.

Thanks I know without putting hands on it is hard to get down to the penny. I appreciate the input.

You might be able to get $350 or $400 on the model 36
I am guessing $700 on the Colt but who knows.

some people shouldn't give price advice, your best bet is to search GB completed auctions
In the days of the old west a 6 shooter was as common as cell phones are today and just annoying if they go off in a theater.

I am usually pretty good on S&W older revolver values including where it is sold having bought and sold many of them over the years.
What things ought to sell for and what they sell for are often quite different.
