? about Super Single Six value.

I have searched the forums, and some Googlefoo, but I'm coming to the authorities on this.

A family member recently passed, I acquired a Ruger Super Single Six 3 screw sn 60-07xxx. It has the box, papers, factory and oversized grips, and two cylinders, 6.5 barrel.

Can someone please just ballpark me on a fair price to list locally. There is about inch of wear on the bluing on the end of the barrel on the left side, and also a small spot on the left side just behind the cylinder.
If my research is correct, I think $300ish is about right, but wanted to ask the experts.

Thank you very much
Regards
HOTHEAD

My condolences on your loss.

$300 sounds low to me. I sold one of those for about that price in 2007; it was in similar condition, but no box and papers.

Rimfire Forum

A lot depends on your local market, and how quickly you want to sell it. I think it would disappear pretty fast at $300, because at that price, someone will buy it just to re-sell. If you're not in a hurry, and putting a C-note in someone else's pocket bothers you a bit, then I'd recommend listing it at $450/best offer, or maybe $425/BO, and see what kind of nibbles you get. Lowest I'd advertise would be $400 firm. Be patient. They aren't making those any more, they have collector as well as shooter value, and you can always drop the price later if it doesn't move.

Examples of old-model/3-screw Single-Six or Super Single-Six auctions/prices I have found online:

Regular 3-screw Single Six (not a Super), buy-it-now price of $425:
http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/Vie...Item=344188853

Super like yours, non-standard grips, no box, painted front sight, trigger shoe (yuck), b-i-n price $475:
http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/Vie...Item=344356489
Ignore those last two photos of a Redhawk at the bottom...

Not a Super, not even a convertible, maybe in better shape, no box/papers, started at $439:
http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/Vie...Item=343420205

Nice gun like yours, older, but converted to transfer bar at factory, which hurt the value; no mention if they still have old parts, but has box. Started at $490:
http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/Vie...Item=343431974

Super like yours, same accessories, about same age and condition, buy-it-now price of $600:
http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/Vie...Item=343438352


Those are just a few examples from pages #1 and #2:

Basically hammer notched to no longer touch firing pin. Trigger drilled to push transfer bar between hammer and firing pin when pulled. Gammer hits transfer bar which hits firing pin which... In factory conversion replacement hammer and trigger used, with transfer bar added. Maybe a few springs swapped also.

There are a number of folks who can help over at www.rugerforum.com

And there might be a number of folks who'd make you an (honest) offer.
