    I know someone selling this pistol, it is in VG condition, it does not have the original grips, box , or manual. What would you pay for it?

    The lack of the factory grips, box and manual is not much of a deal breaker for a Model13-3. All three items can be found fairly cheap on the auction sites.

    A S&W 3" barrel round butt .357 is a desireable gun. Nickel is plus for some collectors. I would think $300 is a good price and $325 is not excessive.

    I gotta agree with 22wrf 250.00 tops they are a good gun no doubt but then you gotta buy the original grips, etc, just mho..........

    Thanks for your help. He was asking $495 for it and I thought that was high, but I have seen them selling on GB for over $500.

    Were they actually selling for over 500 or was the seller asking for over 500 with no bids? That's the key, but then I have seen crazier pricing than that on worthless so called one of a kinds. My favorite was the Rare German proof Enfield No1MKIII that was a good shooter but it shot 2 feet to the left at 50 yards:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::confused:
    He wanted 1200.00:eek:

    PS just saw one at a local gun shop today. Pretty good shape, 280.00 bucks
