I have a 38 S&W special CTG model 10 6-shot, with a 6" barrel, blued finish, there is a model # on it 14-3, and the serial number is 12K6993
It's in very good condition, no rust of any kind, the bluing is slightly worn near the end of the barrel.
Can you give me a ballpark figure of it's resale value?
Let's get one tangle straightened out first. Your revolver is clearly not a Model 10. Why you would think it is when you have clearly told me it is a Model 14-3 is quite beyond me.
While both the Model 10 and the Model 14 are K frame revolvers, the difference is quite important. The Model 10 was a service revolver with fixed sights. The Model 14 was a target revolver with an adjustable target rear sight. Model 14s of this era always had a K in the serial number, while the Model 10s had a D.
Your Model 14-3 was shipped in 1977. In NRA Excellent condition (which is what you seem to have described) your revolver is valued at around $650. You can add $50-$75 if you have the box, the cleaning kit and the sight adjustment tool (small screwdriver).
Model 14, got it. Thanks!
You are quite welcome.
