    Price for Smith 586

    What would a reasonable price be for a Smith 586 6" in good condition? There's one online for $550, but I don't know if that's a good price or not. I'm considering offering the guy $500.

    Not enough info for an informed opinion. Condition, description (series), modifications, stainless/blue, grips, box, papers, FFL required, shipping required? Condition is probably the most important discriminator, but "good" can span a wide range of subjective opinions. Try to compare it to some of the 586s in similar condition that have actually sold on Gun Broker.

    Blued gun and it'd be an intrastate sale so all no extra fees or anything.

    Assuming the gun is really in good condition, both mechanically and cosmetically, the asking price is about the right ball park. A $500 offer might not be accepted, but it isn't an insult either. Again, condition is critical, and if pictures are not posted I'd ask them to send you some.

    If this is a no lock model ( if no dash sounds like it ) .. Then yeah decent price if in good shape.. I paid around 530 or so for mine a few months ago used but in great shape with box...

    And I like to always throw this out there .. Good guide to checking out a wheel gun https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B6Fh.../edit?hl=en_US

    6" are less desirable than 4"....if IN VERY VERY good condition, 500-ish.

    But if you really want it, and you pay $550, you are not a sucker at that price. I'd sleep well paying that if I really wanted it.

    4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.

    Offered the guy $500 and he accepted. Just picked it up. Gave it a once over and it's in pretty good shape. Could use a little cleaning up, but that won't be hard.

    Congrats. Give us a range report after you've had a chance to put it through its paces.
