    I found one for $1300 in great shape. I know it's well worth the asking price, but what would be a good counter offer that wouldn't be silly? $1150?

    Probably $1200 would be a fair and realistic offer.

    I've seen them going for $1100 to $1400 around here.

    1150 not a bad starting offer. The worst they will say is no and they might want a little more.

    Always better to ask low and then go up slightly...

    What they said.

    4" blued models normally sell for the least, because they're some of the most common.

    I have a probably 96%-98% 4" blued 1967 Python with wood grips (perfect) and I gave 825 for it a year and a half ago, but prices on these things have gone way up. I would have loved a nickle model to pair it with but no way Jose! Not enough coin.

    I'd see if you could get it for $1000.

    You got a really good deal. They went through the roof in price well before a year and a half ago. Colt's have actually come down in price signifigantly during the recession. Not so much the common models, but the more rare ones. They are still high, but about two years ago there was a real buying spree that made the prices absolutly stupid high.

    For what it's worth, I'd also wave $1000 cash in the sellers face.
