price check on a .38 Super Combat Commander:

I'm not big on these things.

.38 Super Blued Combat Commander
70s series gun
Smooth Colt Grips
99.9% condition...near if not actually New. Flat stock, unmodified

no box but pristine

I see values across the spectrum
what's realistic ?
Pops has one he wants to move
all out of my wheelhouse

Thanks

Id imagine $800-1k would be a good place to start.

Go to Gonebroker's "advanced search" and search completed sales, not current asking prices. See what prices they actually sold for and see what prices had a BIN price with zero bids.

That won't necessarily be equivalent to your local market selling price, but it will give you a good reference point to start from.

$850- $900 with 1 factory magazine is realistic in this AO.

Around my area they can run $800-$900 as well. If you decide to pass on it, please let me know.

If priced to sell I would be a player. If wants retail I have over 60 1911s but do not think I have a Commander in 38 Super so would have to think hard.
