    I've inherited this a few years ago and it's been sitting in the safe since then. It would better serve me if I traded it in on something new to use as personal protection. I'm wondering what this is worth retail and trade in values. Thanks in advance. TJ

    Hello, anyone, ballpark figures?????? Year of manufacturer? There are no letters under the grip in front of the numbers.
