Hello, I have a Rossi M88 "S" "2" it is a snub nose with a black leather or maybe a plastic butt if that is the right word. I want to sell it, I was curious what I could ask for it? It has been in a sock drawer for years, I only used it about 15 years ago when I bought it at practice range. Thank you for any help!

Unfortunately just about all Rossi handguns will never be worth that much money. Rossi has been and most likely will always be a "budget" brand. That however does not necessarily mean they are Cheap.

If your gun is in excellent condition it would generally be in the $175 - $275 range.

If it were my gun and I was trying to sell it I would ask $250 (very fair price), if in like new condition then $275 would not be unreasonable. I think on the very low end for an M88 in excellent condition you should be able to get $200.
