Re: Looking for the value of a revolver
'M' prefix indicates 1952 manufacture - If it has a 6" barrel, it will have a one piece grip on a "bird's head shaped" grip frame and it will be a 1st Model 7th Variation. If it has a 4" or a 2.5" barrel, it will have a "NEW STYLE" round butt grip frame taking two grip panels. In that case, it will be a 1st Model 8th Variation (actually a forerunner of the 2nd Model introduced the next year, 1953.) Value will depend upon which one you have and condition. Very Generally speaking - the value will range from about $50 for a parts gun, up to a bit over $200 in Excellent condition - add the box and add another $25 to $35.
