S&W .357 Mag
So I found a nice used S&W Model 619 .357 Mag at a gun store down in Hagerstown, MD. The price tag caught my eye at only $499. I put it on layaway, and I have two concerns about it.
1. I was wondering if I made the right choice driving home. $499 seemed a little low for it. Not that itís a bad price; itís what if something is wrong with it? Does anyone else seem to think its a little low?
2. He was saying something about getting it shipped up to PA once I made the final payment. Now Iíve never bought outside of the state, how does this work?
Not the exact pic, but it's the same one that I set on lawaway.
Isn't that a model 64 you are showing in the picture?
If it is a model 64, a price in the $450 to $500 range is pretty normal. Here is one on Gunbroker that appears identical, in that price range:

I'm pretty sure it was the 619...
It looks very similar to that
here is another stock photo. The 619 is on the left
The Standard Catalog of Smith & Wesson lists the value of the Model 619 as $525.00 (ANIB) and $475.00 (Excellent), so the price looks about right.
The MD dealer will have to ship the gun to a PA dealer, you can then take possession at the PA dealer's shop, after filling out the 4473 and the NICS check.
Pogo2, it's not a Model 64. The Model 619 is an "L" frame, 7 shot .357 Magnum, introduced in 2005.
I was probably thinking of the price of a new one. A new S&W 619 runs upwards of $620 according to the site. The prices you listed are for a used 619 Iím sure?
The first value I listed from SCSW is for a revolver that is "As New In Box" (ANIB). ANIB indicates a revolver that has been fired but not enough to degrade its condition. The second, lower value, is for a revolver in used, "Excellent" condition.

Assuming your 619 is in "Excellent" or better condition, then the price you paid is by the "book".
