I have wanted a similiar gun for years, so far all I run into at a good price is blued ones. So I ended up buying 2 blued ones on the way so I don't really know if I need 3 of them. The price sounds fair to me these days, if Its the gun you really want I'd buy it. While it's not rare technically I never see them for sale.

I have a relatively new SS Bisley .45 Colt/.45 ACP convertible and I believe that this is a FINE revolver. My cylinder throats were slightly undersize (I reamed them to proper .4525" dimensions, had a trigger job done and the pawl modified to be a "free spin" pawl (all rather minor "alterations") and have myself a very practical field and hunting revolver almost ideally suited to deer and hogs at reasonable ranges.

The large caliber centerfire revolver also does a fine job on edible small game.

The price you were quoted is certainly in line.

FWIW

I paid $460 for mine NIB OTD four years ago IIRC (how's that for acrynims(sp)?). I think that $400 is a fair price though, I've thoroughly enjoyed having a stainless revolver.

Mine, with the Hogue grips and a CAS reamed cylinder, I love it!:

I have one on the way in a 4 5/8" bbl. that I've dropped "more" than your $400 offer. It's NIB. I probably paid too much, but had a hard time finding that barrel length, so I jumped on it.
