I found this Model 60 for sale here locally. The guys says he bought it at an estate auction and it looks like it's never been fired. He's asking $475.00 for it. I wouldn't pay that for it. Anyone want to take a stab at what it would be worth? Thanks.

I looked at new 60s two days ago, and the best big box price I found was $575.
If that one has not been shot, you have found a time machine. I'd pay new price for a NIB no lock Smith.
I think it is definately worth $475, unfired worth even more, IMO.
Buy it. You will be sorry if you don't!

I would price it in the $390-425 range. Not orginial grips, They look like Elk horn grips and they are not fitted correctly to the gun. as least it appears that way in the photo.
Unfired, orginial box with all papers and unopened tools would add about $50.00 to the above price.
Buy it or You will kick Yourself later.
it is the 38sp model 60. the price is higher than what some of the new 357mag j-frames are selling for around my area of tennessee. sportman warehouse had a sale on j-frames two weeks ago and the price was lower and then s&w kicked in a $50.00 rebate on top of the low orice. most used model 60/36 were in the $300.00 and below range before the election. now prices have gone up. i would pass and buy a new j-frame in 357mag. but,,,,, the old model 60 does not have that dumb safety that s&w puts on their guns. check local prices and try to talk them down on the price, if you want it. i carry an old model 60 in 38sp. one good gun with the clip draw belt clip on it. it is my "bug" on the job.

Used model 60s are going for $499.00 in my area.

That model 60 would be worth about 425.00 with the original grips numbered to the gun. Worth the asking price if condition was NIB with the tools, paperwork that came with it.
It may be unfired, but it's not new in appearance as in collector grade which would be worth that price if it was.
I just picked up an older orginal nickel model 36 for 375.00 that's finish is in better condition.
Thing with S+W pre lock revos is: You never pay too much, you just pay too soon. Pre locks are desirable and getting scarcer every day. If you like it, take it.

Two years ago in NY I bougt a model 60 with original grip for $250 and a Model 66 for $395. Both great buys. Yours seems slightly high BUT, S&W just released a similar retro model that sells for $700.

Thanks for all the replys. The gun does not have the original box or papers. I know its a "borderline price" and I could probably get him down to $450.00 or so. Still undecided....
I'm in agony! I desperately want a 60 but don't have the cash right now BUT I havent seen anything this good unless it was $500 or more and recently they're going for $550 to $575 and they aren't going to get cheaper. If you can get this for $450 to $500 it's an OUTSTANDING deal. I'd replace the grips and you'd have the ultimate snubby!
You're simply not going to find one significantly cheaper that's in such good shape.
