    I would hope that if they were new guns they'd be in the original box and have the paperwork.:supergrin:
    Easy way to find out what a fair price is, hit Bud's Gun Shop web site and look em' up. Figure in what you're local FFL would charge to put the gun on his books and do the background check and add that to the Bud's price and then you'll have a rough idea of if they're good prices or not.

    Not really by the time you add shipping and FFL transfer.

    OK, guess I'm asking about the 686 is all then. It's a 3" which is my favorite L frame barrel length. Looking at what I paid for my -6, with tax they'd be the same. My -6 has THE best trigger of all my S&W wheelies - lock and no lock guns. I would'nt sell it. Is a NIB -5 worth $650? I'd keep it or let my future FIL know where it is, not going to buy it to sell it. I don't need it but NIB w/o IL are pretty rare to come across these days. Guy won't budge on price. Thanks!

    NIB no-lock 3" 686+ for $650 is pretty fair.

    They aren't getting cheaper.

    I let the FIL - to be get it. I should get to shoot it and maybe if all works out chronologically, it'll be mine before I die. We bought him the 327 (oops, 632) for Christmas which he was stoked about because he likes the .32 Long for some reason and the new fangled magnums seemed like a good idea to him loaded for business. Thanks again.

    Man, the last 686+, 2.5" that I had I paid $450 out the door and that was a high price since I had to have the gun ordered in for me. I'd think $500 would be a big price for a 686. Of course folks think their revolvers are made out of gold anymore so use your own judgment. I'd not pay $450 for ANY revolver but that's just me, I'm a cheap SOB. :supergrin:

    The smith seem to me to be the best deal. EMP 40 for $950 isn't bad neither.

    Yeah, the 686 is probably the best deal out of the three.
