Is that a pre-lock 686? Shoot, I don't even want it and I'd happily pay twice that offer for it. But that's still probably low by a few hundred. And when I say I don't even want it, I only meant I'm not in the market for one. I'd sure love to have one though.

That’s a pre-Hillary Hole 686. Can’t tell which revision  it is without seeing a photo of where the model number is marked on cylinder crane.  It should say 686 or 686-something.  

The lower the revision number or no revision at all, the more the gun is worth to a collector.  

as it looks right now a shop might try to sell it at $800-900. That means they’ll try to buy it for $300-400, so the guy who offered $300 isn’t that far off.  

My guess is that revolver is a late 1980s or 1990s gun due to the target style wooden grip, the polishing finish style of the steel and the SW markings.  If I were to buy it, I probably wouldn’t pay more than $450 assuming that the gun is mechanically fine.
