1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    If whoever buys yours at your price and wants a matched pair, let me

    Doyal,


    If I've never seen yours being shot...does that mean it "looks to be" unfired, too?

    keep on bumping her up thanks guys, to answer a question the guy I got it from said it was unfired and it looks like that to me. I didn't buy it new so I can't say for sure. No burn marks on the frame and it has no marks on it. If your going to be a idiot just move on. I feel it's worth at least 1,000 if you don't move on please.

    Don't know what it's worth, but I do know when I used to shoot handguns a lot the .41 mag was a tack driver. I enjoyed it much more than the .44 mags. Just my $.02
    and good luck with the sale.

    To get national auction prices - you gotta be willing to put up with national auction crap.

    In the real world, it's a $650.00 to $700.00 gun.

    I always thought the .41 Rem Mag was a better cartridge than the .44RM. After all, it is a true 41-caliber cartridge, so its .410" bore only gives up .019" of bullet diameter to the 44's .429" bore. Its bullets usually fly a little flatter, the guns seem to be a hair more accurate and they don't kick quite as hard but the 44 has always been overwhelmingly more popular and therefore has enjoyed higher resale vlaue.

    Unfortunately, the only pricing tool that matters is the public's perception of an item's value!

    "I know what you're thinkin'. Did he fire six shots or only five? Well to tell you the truth, in all this excitement, I'm not sure myself. But since this is a .41 Magnum," ..........Nah. ;-)

    I have a 4" 57 and it's still one of my favorites.
