    adler3200,

    If I may make a suggestion, you may want to pick up a current copy of gun digest or other publications that have gun values listed with break downs for model type.

    This will provide all the info you need for the 4 guns you've listed so far.

    It has been reblued. @ $300. You can tell by the way the engraving is not sharp on the side of the receiver were they buffed the old blue off. Just bought one 6 month ago just like it $300 (good deal) Here's a pic and you can kind of see how the engraving has not been buffed out (1950 mod). Not the best pic but you can still see what I'm saying this gun has not been reblued. This is a common problem with "restored guns" and actually lowers the value.

    I don't mean to offend but your gun is NOT in 98% condition, the second pic is one that is 98% condition. 98% condition would be 2% less than NIB. This gun has been in my family for 45 years and has had @ <1000 rnds thru it. Always dis assembled, cleaned, and store in the case, never traveled.
