Ruger blackhawk 357 3 screw

I've had my old 3 screw for probably 10 years now and its all orignal except for the front sight and the grip frame screws on the back of the frame (they are all OEM parts). It's blued with a 4 5/8'' barrel, has holster wear on the front of the ejector rod housing but other than that a very fine example. I don't have the orignal box either, I know thats a big deal when it comes to collecting.

I'm pretty up to snuff on the new model ruger prices but as for any collector values I really don't have much knowledge. I am far more interested in shooting then collecting.

How much should I be able to get out of the gun I described, and would it drop the value if I replaced the ejector rod housing with an OEM replacement? I'm not sure if I will sell it or not, but I would have more use for a new model Ruger and I'm thinking of getting a MK III with a heavy barrel. Anyone think I could get a straight trade?

Question

What is it's serial number range. Photos would be a great help in determining its condition. These factors have an effect on it's value.

Yes I know I will get some photos and the serial# when I get back home tomorrow, and I will put them with my post. Just for example how much would a 90% gun made in the early 70's be worth?

I buy a few guns off either gunbroker or auctionarms...gunsamerica ain't too realistic on prices to me. There are a jillion Old Model 357 BLACKHAWKS out there, but you never know...take a look at the auctions and educate yourself.

I'd figure your gun was worth at least $300 and could go up depending on a lot of factors. You are guaranteed to get a bad deal if you trade it in on something else...especially if the shop is run by one of those clowns who has a copy of THE BLUE BOOK OF GUN VALUES clutched to his bosom. My local gun shop is one of those birds, so he gets a lot of $25 transfer fees from me. I have bought a few guns from him, but not many.

EDK,
I learned long ago not to trade with dealers, I'm fortunate enough to live about an hour away from Tulsa so I have the worlds largest gun show at my disposal twice a year, plus smaller shows that are probably bigger than most states big gun shows about once a month. So it shouldn't be hard to get a fair trade, just need to find smeone who has a Mark III and wants an old model blackhawk.

Thanks for the help
