The local gunshop here just got in, on consignment, a mint perfect Smith & Wesson Model 16-2 revolver in 32 Magnum, with 4" barrel.
The asking, consignment price, is $2,000.00 (no sales tax in Montana).
I was shocked at this price when I saw it but did a little investigating and that price seems in line for this rather rare Smith revolver nowadays.
The revolver appears unfired to me and is allegedly a one owner gun (don't know the owner) who bought it new in 1990.
Anyway the gun is very nifty and lots of meat around the cylinder holes - the grips are the finger groove, uncheckered S&W "Combat" style. No box.
If anyone is interested the number of the shop is 406-683-9844 - Tuesday through Saturdays.

Not an easy one to find. 3 on Gunsinternational and 2 on gunbroker that's it. This one ends in an hour.

Troutnut,

That one is a cool looking piece. Be fun to pop a doe in the ear with! Then some bunnies! Then some ground squirrels... smile

Yep a K frame full lug with 32 mag ammo recoil would be nonexistent. Be a fun one to have

Bunnies, squirrels and H&R would be good match made in heaven. Back in late 1800 (ca. 1890) Harrison & Richardson marketed fine S×S made on famed Anson & Deeley actions (of Westley Richards). Man, those were among the best game guns assembled in USA. Thanks for wonderful moment of nostalgia.

Should be a 16-4. And yes they are cool and fun to shoot. I don’t think I’d give $2000 for one but they are fairly scarce.

I have a 6” and I know at least one other poster with 2 of them.

That's one I'd love to have but it's out of my budget range. Local shop recently had a 6-inch 16-4 with factory combats for $1940 but I think someone finally snagged it. Fabulous gun.

That's a cool picture. Not many of those revolvers around definitely not many with a gobbler to its credit

TroutNut: Thanks for that example - it did end at $1,475.00.
I would prefer the 6" barrel version over the 4" model here at my local gunshop.
The owner of the gunshop told me the owner of the pistol originally paid $320.00 for the pistol new!
So he is expecting a "six-fold" increase on his investment.
Thanks again.

Jcon72: I would like to have this Model 16 for my collection but, like you, the price startled me!
I am not saying the pistol is not worth it but I won't be a player for it at that price.
Amazing how some firearms increase in value in relatively short amounts of time.

The Kid: I have to head for town today and I will double check the "dash number" on this pistol.

The problem with that tag price for Ole' Boy is he is discouraging fair offers. At this price point $500 gap is simply too large. It is ok I am sure he does not need to sell it just trying to move something he has no use for, can not say I blame him.

A 16-4 if its a factory 32 H&R.

Hopefully someone didn't put a reamer to a 16-2. If they did, they lost some serious scratch!

Yep, plus they tend to shoot flat.

The Kid & HawkI: Indeed the pistol in question is a 16-4 not a 16-2 like I originally posted/misremembered.
Looked at the gun again and it is flawless!
But again the "two big bills" price tag intimidates me.
Thanks for the correction.

Would love to have a 4”, but at that price I guess I will keep on with my 6”………wish I had scored one back in the 90s…

The 4” is great but since I am more of a hunter I would gladly trade my 4” for a 6” version

Traded into one a few years ago that Dick ended up with. Only reason I sold it is because I had a Model 53 6" converted to .327 and just didn't have a use for the 4".

When visiting Dick in 2021 got to shoot a bunch of ground squirrels with it...glad it went to a good home...

Saw a 8 3/8" sell on GunBroker a few weeks ago for something like $2500...

Bob, how do you know price realized was not result of "shill bidding"?

Look at the bidding history of the two guys who were bidding...both had A+ ratings...

For whatever reason GB ended up booting the winner for not paying for a previous auction...
