It really depends on why you want it. If it is just to have because you want one, then the price is immaterial. If you want to shoot it occasionally, you will never wear it out as they are not anywhere near as fragile as people make out.
I wanted one for years and finally found one a year and a half ago for $850. I bought it without hesitation and am delighted with it both as a work of art and as a shooter. It is incredibly accurate and has a wonderful trigger.
My next "grail" gun is a Model 27 Smith and Wesson. Within reason, I am prepared to pay the going rate for a nice one.
