My father was in the Army Air Corps during WWII. He was a radio man on a B17 and brought home his service pistol. He died when I was seven years old and my mom kept his service pistol hanging around the house. She was scared of firearms so she gave it way before I was old enough to appreciate it. I remember messing with the pistol when I was younger.

A friend of mine got this 4" S&W Victory model pistol for a loan and the guy never paid the loan off.

I would like to get it (reminds me of my dad's pistol) from him but I don't know what it is worth. It comes with a G.I shoulder holster that's in poor condition.

The pistol is marked U.S. NAVY and has all the matching serial numbers, including the numbered grips. I hope someone can help me.

No collector value on these. Values runs about $150-200 or so.

I only wish they were that cheap. I've been on the lookout for a navy marked one for a while but most I've seen were around $400 as the navy ones are more difficult to find

There is one on Gunbroker (better condition)

Guy wants a lot for it , probably overpriced - but if the one you want can be got for
$300 go for it

$ 200-400 is the current price range , that one is looks about $ 275-300 or so if orig park finish but it is hard to say because the finish looks hinkey with the blue background. If it is cold blued it is worth $ 125-150.
These things have become rather collectable lately most have been altered with property marks removed or re-blued etc so orig examples are sought after.

Thanks for the replies. I think I'll pass on this one. He has $425.00 in it.
