I have two Hawes Pistols
One is a brass frame Remington in .44
It is about average in quality, fit and finish of other revolvers of its period. I gave 75.00 for it but it is in less than perfect cosmetic condition.
If it is brass, I think 150.00 is a little steep. If he is asking that I bet he will take 125.00.
I do not know if Hawes imported steel frame revolvers but it if it is steel and in good condition it is probably worth the price.
Still if he is asking 150.00 I think it is worth while to offer less.
