Default New gun!! Need help with an actual value and date of manufacturer.

Smith and Wesson 586-1
I picked it up today. Iíve been looking at it for 2 months. Itís not very often a gun catches my eye enough to pay good for a used one from a store. But I HAD to have this one. I did research and I donít think the price was out of line but I am curious on the value from someone in the know. Iím not a pistol guy. 6Ē. No box. No factory grips(Iíll find some). SN begins with AUW17XX and has an M stamped under it. Gun has been fired but well cared for. 95%+ condition in my opinion and Iím usually conservative on conditions. Thanks for any help you can give me.

Yes. Real hard to judge with so many different models. Was hoping a smith guru would chime in. Iím seeing 8-900ish.

I joined the Smith and Wesson forum just for the purpose of finding out the date of one of my revolvers.
It's a cool forum and also on tapatalk.

I did a price match and they came back at 697.00, however this one is a 586-3 and will probably have the internal lock. The one you have is an older model with no lock. I try to use Buds to get an idea of value of current made guns, I have seen some crazy pricing on Gun Broker.

Matt, that's a very nice gun! I'm a real "Smith" fan! That's a newer model with the insert in the front blade and a 3 screw side plate... BUT, they are solid guns. If you are interested in increasing the value, indeed original grips will help, but not that much... If I were you, I'd go shoot it, and take that sucker out hunting and kill yourself a big ol' buck with it!

The serial number prefix shows that gun to have been built in 1987. Like Charlie said its a good gun and needs to be shot. I would not worry about the grips much, if the ones on it fit you good, use them. Take it to your new lease and bust one of them big nasty hogs.

Smith-wessonforum.com. Very knowledgable folks on there that can help with ID on any S&W ever made and prices. Some are even associated with S&W. With serial # they can tell you when it left the factory. Great forum! They love photos too! BTW, I just love nice wheelguns and you sir have a nice one.
