    Depends on whether or not it is the old three screw model or the newer type.

    nogunracks, I will look up your gun in my 27th edition book, but I need to know the finish,model # barrel lenth, and any other info you can give. There are about 3 pages of models and types all around the 450 price range at 100 % but some are much less and some are much more. Need more info. Break-em all. Jeff

    white grips? Original? Probably a Vaquero. Fixed or adjustable sights?

    I bought 2 of them new about 4 years ago for 350 each. My brother got one I the other. Vaquero Bisley 4 1/2 I think, very clubby and cumbersome. I sold mine just wasn't as fun as I thought it would be. I would say if thats what it is not much over 300.

    Go to gunbroker.com ,go to the smart search. Look under completed auctions. You will see what they are actually selling for not what someone feels they are worth. Mike.. PS be sure to type in your gun description.

    If it is the Vaquero model. The book has it at $475@100%-$330@98%-$265@95% plus add $40 for ivory grips. and Add $150 for Simulated ivory grips and engraved cylinger. No real difference in price for stainless or the new model new in 2005 or in the Bisley type model. All three are made in the 45 Long Colt you mention above. Hope this helps you out. Break-em all. Jeff
