I picked up a 6" .38 Spl. Official Police last February for under $400. Very happy with it.
The action is just beautiful, smooth and light (with some typical trigger stacking) and it's a hoot to shoot.
A few months ago I picked up a Police Positive Special in .32-20. I've not had a chance to shoot it yet.
