586-3 Combat Magnum price check?

What are your opinions on a fair price for a S&W 586-3 4" .357 Combat Magnum, 95% condition, no box, and those aftermarket Pachmayr rubber grips that were popular with Police in the 80's?? Gun is tight, nice deep old school blue, doesn't appear to have been shot much. Red front sight, combat trigger, very slick action. Just curious what some of you would value this at. Thanks in advance!

Around here a gun like that would be in the mid 5ish range for a true 95% gun. A lot will depend on your location and are you buying the gun or selling the gun.

Mine, with the Pachmayer grips (far better in my opinion than the original grips it came with and yes it was the eighties) and even scarred up from back and forth shooting and taking cover wouldn’t be let go for twice that! I think five hundred for a nice one like that which you described would be fair but I’m sorta biased about that model of Smith.

It had a price tag of $575, I grabbed it without a second thought. I haven't seen many older models around this area recently, especially in nice condition. I have a set of vintage K frame target grips (from an early 80's model 66 I foolishly sold 20 years ago), tucked away somewhere that I'll put on.

I think you did very well.
(But then I like Pachmayr grips.)

The box/no box thing...I understand it and I guess I'd like the original box but I can't see paying much for it. If the seller knocked something off the price because he didn't have the original box I'd shed crocodile tears while I wrote out the check.

Don't get me wrong, the Pachmayr grips FEEL incredibly comfortable, I just prefer the APPEARANCE of the original wood grips. I just like steel and wood. It's what I grew up knowing and being exposed to.
I used to have a mod 28 N frame .357, with a brass plate screwed into the bottom of the grip. It was an ex Deputy Sheriff's service weapon. Some officers attached brass plants to the grip in case of a brawl, in which case the gun could be used as a blunt instrument. Not PC in today's world, but effective. . It was a good truck gun, I still kick myself for selling it.

I agree that the original wood grips look a lot better but for me they were far less functional in consistently facilitating a good grip. I do keep the originals around if for some crazy reason I may want to make the gun “more purdy.” Have fun, that revolver handles .357 real well.

In the GunShine State that would be $500/$600

I'd say for a 95% condition 586-3 that was a good deal.

Picked up a 586-4 on gunbroker recently with the factory wood combat grips for $669 with shipping.
