Although I haven't been back posting on this forum for quite awhile, I just found a new and unfired, 1980 vintage, 2-3/4" NM blue .357 Speed-Six that was too mint to pass up! Following are some pictures of this revolver:

can I ask how much?

Here in California gun prices are higher-but, the retail asking price was $500- however, I managed to talk the gun shop down to $425.

Great find.

I've had my eye out for a blued Speed or Service Six for some time.

Haven't found one locally that wasn't 90% (really beat up) or $500+.

I think those .38/.357 Sixes are about the perfect packing DA wheelgun.

Thanks for the post.

1)Thank you! And, I'm glad to be back!

2)Yes, all of my NIB "White" boxed guns are still resting quietly in my safe-along with one "stainless" Security-Six, that's in the red-orange box!

You have a real beauty there for your collection.
I had one like this, but a shooter...and I couldn't hit with it. So I sold it, even though I loved it.
Just like in trap, I always sold a gun so I could buy a different gun that would "maybe" give me one more bird per hundred. Same idea...but...different...a bunch different. BTW, I also have some beautiful collector pieces that I don't shoot. Oh yeah, just sold one of those, my 3-screw .41 Mag shortie that I've had for 16 years. But it found a good home with a real nice guy who's giving it love.

1)Thanks for the compliment on my Speed-Six!

2)Maybe, you didn't give the Speed-Six that you sold, enough time for you to get used to shooting such a short barelled revolver? I've read many reports of other 2.75" Security/Service/ and Speed-Sixes shooting very accurately!

3)It sounds like you have some nice guns in your collection too! Thanks, for giving me a little history on your experience with your Speed-six as well as some information regarding some of the guns in your collection. And, I know what you mean about giving up guns in hopes of getting some better or more suitable guns for your intended purpose-only, to discover later that you had regrets about selling those guns! I've experienced this situation myself, many times in the past!
