I saw a Nickel 70 Series Combat Commander in a pawn shop today for $649. The Blue book just gives the value for Blued and simply refers to the nickel as "scarce". Would this be worth $600-$650 in 90%-95% condition? ("NO!" answers are appreciated)

Thanks, Jim

I saw one posted in the Pistolsmith forum for 450.00. It was a satin nickel 45 70 series.

I traded a Para Ordnance P-12 that I had $525 in for my series 70 satin commander.... I would do it again in a heartbeat!

If it's in excellent shape and in all original condition, they're probably pretty close for a satin nickel 70 series Combat Commander, although I'd feel better getting them to come down $50-$75 (on a cash deal).

I would offer $500-575. If you can't haggle a little bit in a pawn shop, where can you? Then again, if it were in excellent condition and it was calling to me, I'd offer $600.

If it wasn't for the NRA, the second ammendment would already be gone!

I paid $$485.00 plus tax for a total of $525.00 out the door. It is a .38 Super Combat Commander yet it has the light weight slide. It is satin chrome over copper. The finish is not great and I cannot say what the NRA condition is. The finish is intact though. I really enjoy shooting this gun 125gr minor power rounds are like .22's

Now to the question. I say, if it passes all safty checks and locks up. Can you take it apart for a look? Go for it.

A change of springs is a good idea IMO. Best regards. Teal Blue.
