Re: ruger blackhawk
A 3-screw Blackhawk, in decent shape, would normally go from about 500 to around 900, depending on where you are in the country.
But something that's been messed up like that. Man. Let's say that I wanted it. If I bought it I'd have to have that nickel and gold removed and then the gun reblued, which would cost me somewhere around 400 dollars, to end up with a gun that, because it has been refinished, is worth about 300 dollars.
If that was a car, the insurance company would say it was totaled. It would cost more to fix than it's worth. And that is a cryin' shame.
