it's hard to tell the make and model as i'm not good with wheelguns, but it is a six shot. if you post the make and model someone will inform you for sure

It looks like the Smith and Wesson seal on the grip and its a 6 shooter. S&W has too many damn revolvers to narrow it down lol.

It looks like it may be a K-22, but if not, it is probably what is called a .22 Kit gun built on the smaller frame, such as the J-frame. Either one in the condition of this one is easily worth $250.00.

The model number should be inside the frame, in front of the cylinder when the cylinder is opened.

If they guy offered it to you for 150 then you are not ripping him off. He knows what he paid for back then and he knows what he wants out of it now. Give him the 150 and go on. Now if you made him a low ball offer knowing what is worth then you would be ripping him off.

At 250...you are STILL getting an amazing deal on one of the best shooting 22 revolvers ever made.

Go for it.

I agree, what if the old guy likes you as much as you like him? He's making you a good deal, I say take it.

Maybe just mention that you think its worth more and would like to offer him more for it... that would be respectable, just guessing but he probably would turn you down for paying more anyway if you are friends.

Speaking as someone who's been in that position--that is, the chance to buy a gun for much less than it's worth because the seller wasn't aware of it's value...be honest. Tell him that you did a little research, and the gun is worth more than he is asking. Allow him to decide what he'd like to sell it to you for.

You'll feel better about it.

Take the high road, let him know the real value and tell him he could get more for the pistol than he's asking. Let him decide if he still only wants $150 for it. If he's anything like me, he'll stick with the $150 price point.
