In 2016 while attending the WI State match I bought a 99% 14-5 for $800.  Yep I paid about $100 more than I had planned but I'd been looking for over a year for a really good one.  I had passed on several good condition ones in the $600-700 range.
$1,200 is way too much for a 95% gun.

Very nice Mr. Micelli...
I don't believe we know each other nor did I solicit your advice to the extent that you would make a separate thread about this?  I'll let the market determine the value, if it sells then I'm not far off, if not then I can choose to lower the price or wait for a better day.  Either way your concern is unwarranted.

For starters it’s one L in Miceli. Actually I didn’t notice you had edited your post to include the 14-5 in your original 208 post. No solicitation needed. I freely offer my advise to the forum that you are overcharging.


I’ll give you 750$ + shipping today

While it is true that they have sold for much less, they also have sold for more.  This isn't a life sustaining commodity, overcharging is the incorrect word.  If someone feels the asking price is to much they simply don't purchase it.  Like I said the free market will determine the value, or are you nor a lover of this american way?

I was going to sell my stainless Python for $2,500, but then "The Walking Dead" came out and now I can just about trade the Python for a new car. Yes, supply and demand sets the price, and "let the buyer beware" in all cases. To be fair though, those aren't the original grips for a 14-5, they came with the finger groove combat grips, that also demand a premium by themselves, so maybe we're selling them separately? Sorry, just have to get my two cents in.

looking at the heavy turn line and holster wear on muzzle, I'd say it was a well used PPC Distinguished Revolver somebodies fallen in love with.

Whew, almost thought you were having issues with the First Amendment, but see you are ‘Merican!

Bruised ego aside, you should give Chris a cut of your sale for all the folks that have been clicking your Gunbroker ad today because of his annoying ass commentary. There is no such thing as bad publicity!

I thought the Hammerli price was a bit strong, but you sold it quick! So you are also correct to tell the haters to put up or shut up Steve... just don’t count on them doing so. Wink

All parties can discuss price and condition and terms all you like, just don’t let it drift out of hand and make me have to start whacking everyone with a wet noodle.

 The 14-6 was drilled & tapped, the 14-5 was not.

Thanks Walt. I wasn't sure what dash the factory drill and tap started.  
I have a 14-3 and I don't want to booger it up.

LOL!  I agree, Chris should probably get a finder's fee if it sells to a forum member... got a lot of activity since this post!  I just want to get to the root of his objection.

I think Chris is thinking Steve is asking to high of a price. But I could be wrong.

On another forum there’s a rule about attacking other people’s ads.

To be fair Chris was commenting on a Gun Broker add prior to the subject gun being added to an add in this forum.

That post seemed reasonable.

I am not trying to add to this mess but Mark that is not correct. The 14-5 was added to his ad well before this ridiculous post started. That is the one thing I thought was sacred here, it is really rare to see someone crap on a for sale ad, I guess someone thinks he is helping.

JUST DON'T BUY IT IF YOU DON'T LIKE THE PRICE.

I thought the "Walking Dead" revolver was a S&W 6" stainless 686?  Not that a stainless Python isn't a rare bird and worth what the market will bear.

Nope, it's a Python, check this out:

Yep, I was mistaken and just expected it to be a S&W 686. 

Having seen the S&W M29 price increase from the Clint Eastwood 'Dirty Harry' movies and those of the Colt AR15 when the ban was proposed, I might be inclined to sell that revolver then wait five years to buy it back.  But, that 's often easier said than done.

Things like this remind me of a brand new Python in a showcase a lifetime ago, thinking it would really be nice, but it was so expensive.....     Should have bought all I could find, as an investment!

Then there was the S&W Model 952 that I somehow talked myself out of.
I wonder if there are any guns available new today, that will have a similar escalation in value..


Regarding this thread, I think it's great that we have all these discussions about things for sale.  It's a pretty small community, and most of us seem to be helping each other.  To my way of thinking, that's wonderful, and I hope nobody ever changes it.
