    My Father-In-Law passed away recently and he had two hanguns that he had purchased in the last couple of years that I need pricing for. The first one is a Ruger P89 9mm w/box and papers in LN condition. The second gun is a S&W Model SW9VE 9mm pistol with a laser attachement from the factory. The Smith has never been fired and has the box/papers too. My Mother-In-Law wants me to sell these but I not sure what they are "worth". Thanks in advance, Randy Price

    The Ruger is around $350 the Smith?????

    I personally wouldn't own a semi-auto Smith.

    Check out local stores and see what they are selling for and subtract about 15%

    Have you ever shot a model 41 Smith & Wesson?

    If you have please tell me what is wrong with them.

    He's also probably never shot a model 52 either.

    Prices on the streets of New York or Detroit are probably higher.

    Yes I've shot S&W 41 and others Smith semi's

    Just shoot better groups with other makes.

    If you like Smiths semi's and they preform for you, that is great.

    Yep, never shot a model 52, they were discontinued in 1993.

    I shoot lots of Smiths in wheel guns and they are great, just not impressed with their semi's.

    Yes an I own guns that are 100 years older than me, so what that it was discontinued, still plenty around. Try a Model 52-2, you'll be impressed.

    I had one of the S&W Sigma(SW9VE) 9mm Glock copies. It was less than impressive when speaking of accuracy. It would feed any ammunition you could throw in it though.

    Well 80,

    You send me a model 52, I'll shoot it and then report back to you what I think of it.

    Sound fair enough?

    Depending on your state laws you can either list them locally in which case it will cost you close to nothing to sell them. Give them to a dealer to sell on consignment and pay 20-30% commission or list them on the internet on a site like Guns America or Gunbroker.

    Good luck they seem to be nice and sellable guns. expect to get from $500-750 for them if you sell them ypour self.

    The Model 41 Smith was the first choice for shooting .22cal in NRA Bullseye matches when I was shooting. Second choice was a Ruger Mark II or III; however, as my mother would say "that was then and this is now".
