    Nice purchase. When I used to trout fish along creeks and rivers in the woods, I always thought a stainless Chief's would be ideal to have in the field when fishing. Couldn't afford an expensive backup gun at the time (college days) and had to settle with a Charter Arms snubby. I still remember that l kept dreaming of having an M60 instead.

    Agreed ! It would give it that "old school" look for sure.

    I really struggled between the T-grip or the Eagle Secret Service grips and went with the SS grips.

    They really don't add anything to the grip length or backstrap so I believe they will be fine.

    I really like rosewood on a nickle or stainless gun.

    I've got one almost like it, that I traded a Century Arms Ak74 for a year or so back.

    VERY NICE! I'd wanted a S&W J Frame for years and glad I finally got one, a nickel 36. My gun buying is probably done for the year but my next goal is a S&W Airweight J frame... and a compact 45, and a...

    maybe a good find

    Looking for some advice, and from what I've read on this thread, you all know what you're talking about... I found an older model 60 (produced in the early 80s) in great shape. The shop wants 495. What do you all think? They're getting tougher and tougher to come by, but I would rather not shell out "too much". Any advice from experience or otherwise??? It would be appreciated.

    Welcome to the forum Jake,

    In my area of the country $495 is not a bad price for a clean Model 60 but it is on the upper end of the scale.

    I would like that to be an out the door price if I was buying it.

    You see them listed online for more than that and you are correct that they are becoming scarce.

    I got lucky with the price I paid for mine.

    I had done the lady a favor and the price to me was a "thank you".
