500 for a 4" 686 is probably about right. More than I would pay, but I'm cheap. Depends on the holster. I've got leather holsters that cost 15 bucks
and leather holsters that cost waaay over 100.
I max out on a Smith revolver at 450. Just refuse to pay more. 'Course, there's a lot of 'em I don't get 'cause people won't come down that far.
On the other hand, 250 for that 48 was a helluva deal. I probably wouldn't have got it because I don't like 22 magnum. Cost too much. I can reload 38s for less than they cost. But for 250 I might have bought it, and looked into getting a 22LR cylinder fitted to it.
