Was out and about with my buddy this week, and we stopped by Gander. He's been looking for a .38/.357 since his model 10 was stolen. They had a used Security Six in stainless for $300. Looked good. Some wear and use, but lockup was good, as was end shake. It went home with him. Called him later and he had done some disassembly and cleaning. Told me it did not appear to have a lot of rounds through it.

I told him I would have been tempted at that price, and I don't really need another .38 revolver.

It will be a user for him.

What say you on the deal? This is more of a price I would expect from an individual, than a company.

I might have hurt myself getting the money out of my pocket fast enough. :mrgreen:

I would have bought it as long as it was a .357 Magnum. Still a good deal.

Buddy and I went to the range and I got a chance to shoot the Security Six.

As stated before trigger was excellent. I was able to get 6 round group, all shots touching at 7 yds free standing.

A good deal indeed. $300 SS Security Six guns are very hard to find.
