    Don,

    I'd say in the 400 to 500 range. To the high side if it's pre-lock. The 17's/617's are nice shooting revolvers for sure.

    KEEP SMOKIN' EM.... Dave

    I think you are way hi on the value

    Although recovering a little- smiths still suffer in resale value from that anti gun stand the company took

    I would say you are more in the 300-350 range

    This is not a pre lock model.I have owned less than a year.I bought it new.Next question is how is the proper way to sell it on this site.I have never bought or sold anything on here.I would want it to be legal.So i ship to a FFl of the buyers choice, I assume and the buy would pay to transfer ownership? And how is the best carrier to ship through? thanks Don Cummins

    300 bucks for a like new 617 ???? In what universe ??? You're either way out of touch Gene or know about some great shops/dealers who sell guns at a loss. If that's the case, let me on the secret....I want to shop there.

    Go to the Rock Island Arsenal Gun Auction- if you want Smiths at a low price- the one exception might be model 41s and the original model 29s

    whoever buys it from you must have his FFL dealer send or fax a copy of his FFL to you. you then send it to the FFL holder's address via Fedex or UPS with the buyer;s name in the package. hope this helps. jm

    I find it unusual that S&W would not change the model designator between six- and ten-shot guns. I have a stainless S&W 22LR that was made in the mid-to-late 1980s that is a six-shot with a six-inch underlug barrel and it also is a Model 617. But I've not been into handguns for many years, so perhaps they no longer make as many variants.

    Ed, a 617 is still a 617, no matter how many holes are in the cylinder. Same gun, just takes longer to load a ten rounder. Just like the 686 can be had in six or seven shot capacity.

    Hang onto your gun, the gun market is like the realestate market, it will be back

    The 29th edition of the Blue Book lists a S&W 617, 10 shot revolver with a 4 or 6" barrel in 98% condition at $430.
