      Question What is up with S&W values

      I purchased TWO Smith & Wesson 410S pistols 8Yrs ago. New In Box, Consec Numbers, Stainless Steel, Factory Laser Grips, Hard box's, All paperwork including Locks, Extra 11 rd Mags. I tried to sell them on the S&W forum and NO ONE EVEN PM'd me on THEM!!, listed for what I PD FOR THEM. But still I have a S&W 4006 11 Rd pistol, not LE used, one owner, a LOT OLDER!!!!!!!!!! Used, that my dad purchased, before he passed away, and it is worth around $200.00 more than He pd for it. What is the problem, in your opinion??? Thanks Bob

      Many people just do not like mag safeties. That may be why there was no interest.

      Other than that, I have no idea why you had no interest on a S&W forum.

      Personally, I have no S&W pistols - had a 686, but sold it to fund something else.

      It's called the market place. If there is a demand, there will be customers to make purchases. If not, finding those customers is going to be more difficult.

      Somebody wants them, at some price. But I have usually found that price to be too low, so I just keep them.

      I just got a 410 pistol with 2 10rd mags. I paid $329 for it and felt like it was a good deal. They are well made pistols and a good value.

      I'm not a big fan of S&W semi-auto pistols. Never have been.

      But, I do like their revolvers and that's where the money is. Not so much the new(er) ones, but ones that are older, pre-lock, no / low dash models and such. The better condition, the more money.

      As far as I'm concerned, their revolvers are the best. I have quite a few and they are all older models. Like having money in the bank baby.

      It depends on the S&W

      Not sure what the 4006 cost new but I have two of them in like new condition that I bought for $275 each, with two mags. They were not police guns either

      As I recall, the 410/410S pistols were the bargain-priced, entry-level pistols in the S&W lineup, with simple/cheap flat-machined sides on the frames and slides, and plastic sights. It is a somewhat dated design, not really unique in any way, with little to no collector value to drive prices upward. Most newer (read: younger) shooters would rather have something with a newer (non-DA) operating system, at the same (or nearly the same) price point. For those who WANT a traditional DA pistol, used Beretta 92s, SIGs, and many other designs are available that are more recognizable and probably better shooters, as well.
