FS: S&W 624 .44 Special Revolver Stainless Steel
« on: July 17, 2011, 01:44:58 pm »
In 1985, S&W got the great idea to take their 629 in .44 Magnum, cut the
cylinder down to accept only .44 Specials, screw the barrel in a little bit
to take up the gap and offer a model 624.  Ostensibly meant as a "target"
revolver it was also marketed in short barrel versions for self defense in
home and afield, mostly by Lew Horton.    While sources differ on exact
dates, this model was offered 1985-1988 and less than 10,000 were made.

THIS GUN, is a standard target version, a 624 (no dash).  Six and half inch
barrel, target hammer w/ firing pin and grooved trigger, standard S&W wooden
grips.  Every indications from the serial number (AHBxxxx) to the Product
Code 103582 indicates it was made in 1985.  It is in very good condition,
having been enjoyed over the years, but not abused.   It includes the box,
the cleaning rod, screwdriver and instruction booklet.

These have sold (actually sold) on GunBroker recently for $545.  Before I
put it on GB, I'm offering it for $525 (Money Order) plus $30 shipping to your FFL.

(And the reason for selling:  I'm trying to simplify life.  I don't need
both .44Special and .44Magnum)

Listed this on GunBroker is anyone's interested.

It takes faith to list something worth $600+ and just say start at $100 and go for it, no reserve.   But after only one day bids are coming in.   Early bid always indicate to me their's interest and it'll easily go for the Bid Now price.

And for the curious, the reason there's a picture of the label is to show that the gun went back to S&W for a recall and was certified as okay.  (The red "C" in the circle)

You should get it. The "snipers" will set the price in the last hour. I wish you luck.

You can't "snipe" on GunBroker.  At least no like EBay.  There's a 15 minute no-bid rule.   That is after the last bid the auction doesn't close for 15 minutes.  So it's more like a "real" auction where as long as there are bids the auction will continue.  But you're right in the last hour of bidding will be the most active and drive the price up.   Actually $525 is more realistic, but I threw the $675 buy-it-now out there as a teaser to plant the idea that it was worth more.

I know that, and I like the rule, but its still the last minute guys who set the prices. You think you're getting a bargain and then BAM! see ya. Good news for you. ;D

The 15 minute rule will cause BP to rise if you're the high bidder at minute 14.   When buying I don't even watch the last hour.  I just put in my best bid and wait until it's all over.   If I get it fine, if not, there will be others. 

Now as a seller, I'm sitting there refreshing every minute cheering the bidders on.  :D

I almost put a bid on it. Very tempting. It would go with my .44 lever gun.

Nice looking piece Alf, just not in the market for one.
