Bozz48 will become famous soon enough
In the neighborhood of $375-$450. 1000 rounds. Not exactly low usage.

Thats what I was thinking. I'am taking the deal because he is willing to take the 2hr round trip to me.

The K22 is worth considerably more than the Ruger and will continue to appreciate as many vintage S&W have done in the past decade. I sold a similar low mileage model for $700 sight unseen on the S&W forum about a year ago.

1K rounds is not a safe queen.

I would not make the trade.

YMMV

I think I did good.the ruger and 200 cash for the S&W. The smith was the pistol without original stocks,paper work or box. So that ruger worth 4 + 2 and I was asking 7. He did the drive, he got a collector and I got a shooter. What matters is we both are happy. Been carrying my baby around since I got . Shes a heavy girl.
