    Hmmm... is my price not good or is it just nobody wants a Classic S&W revolver right now?

    I don’t normally post in classifieds unless needed, but since you asked I’ll provide a quick insight.

    While you have what some would consider ‘desirable’ the fact that you’re missing the box, tools, paperwork and most importantly, factory grips, is what’s hurting your sale, I believe. Also, specimen condition is not that great in regards to finish. No true collector would be interested and a shooter only is what you’re looking for in a buyer. If someone wanted nice “shoes” (grips) they could reasonably be expected to need to shell out an additional $100-200, a large proposition.
    I think many people are fatigued from holidays, spending and the upcoming tax payment season. Along with near record inexpensive AR’s, high capacity handguns and more right now and people are putting their money elsewhere.
    I think you may have run into a kind of ‘perfect storm’ scenario on timing and market conditions along with asking a larger price.
    Just my opinion, but Good luck with the sell and have a great day!

    FWIW, I had a Rem 700 VTR posted for months and never got so much as an inquiry from here. I assume I'm asking too much, or there is limited demand for the caliber or something... but I've had several people at gun shows say "nice rifle", and a couple say "that's a reasonable price", and even a few dealers say they'd trade but just didn't have anything I wanted. I say all that just to say, I don't think my asking price is totally unreasonable, and yet no one has bought it.

    With regard to posting it here, it's also possible that I just haven't been around long enough for people to trust me enough to make an offer or ask about it.

    I think a lot of what @GlockPride says above is probably valid. In the end, all any of us can tell you is why WE (individually) are not interested.

    This. I’ve had a very nice S&W 325 Night Guard for sale for a month now, and priced at the bottom of the market, with no bites. People just don’t have that kind of money to drop on a pistol at this time of year.

    Now if you wait a month when tax refunds go out, you might have better luck. I hope I do ;)

    I appreciate the input! One thing, at least for me... is pictures always tend to show stuff that isn't view-able to the naked eye. This one is in much better condition than many blued S&W pistols. Mine isn't a collector, but it's in very nice condition for a shooter no doubt. Hopefully timing will be better soon and someone will want it. Or could be a few other items I have for sale get bought up and I don't have to unload this one for too cheap. :) Thanks for the input everyone... it's appreciated!!
