Lots of ways to do a "trigger job" from just pulling one leg of the spring off the post to replacing some springs to a real "trigger job"...that depends on who did it, what they did and how well it was done. In this part of the world (nutville) I see Blackhawks in nice condition sell for anywhere from 350 with some blue wear on up to $500 for like new..a source for info is "Gun Broker" but not the prices asked (that's never a good source) but go to advanced search and find the "completed" items and look there. I'ts amazing how few guns are selling and what they are bringing...
I have one like the one you are talking about..S/N 37-238xx which is a '92 or '93 manufacture..it's a like new revolver with original case, paperwork, etc, and I paid $400 for it about 6 months ago plus our silly "fees" which added $35.00. Shoots great and a nice all around 357.
If you like the gun and it's a good solid one and the "trigger job" seems to be fine...what the heck? $400 is just the start...save up as you're going to want more.
