Oh me! Thanks for the heads up Bob but after the gun show the other day I am done buying for a good while. I picked up a couple of S&W M/36's no dash in new condition for $600 off a private seller. One blued (1973) and one nickeled (1983). Here's a picture.
That's a good price on that MK III as they are going for $700 to $900 most everywhere else. That would be a good trading gun at a gun show.
Now that you posted, there is a blue 36 like you posted in the same shop. Looks pristine in shape, but did not examine the gun. Also in another pawn shop is a 2" Model 10 Smith with rubber baby bumper grips, maybe Hogue.
Hi Larry I got mine in a pawn shop for $350 about two months ago. It's rough as there's a lot of chips in the nickel but it's tight and a good shooter. We was in a pawn shop in South Carolina and they had one that was in real good shape looks wise and they wanted $950. They wouldn't come down a dime on it. Seen two at the gun show last week at $700 and $825 both nickel and in fair condition. It's crazy what them old Colt's are going for.
