For a firearm that age and condition that is stellar in my book. I agree too that they made them much better then. Not as many keep parts being used back then and the steel was better quality IMHO, but what do I know.Wasn't a super deal but, a fair one. That's a 25 years old gun in fine condition. The older 500's are built MUCH better than the new ones. I paid $300.00 out da door, no tax and no paperwork. The cheapest I seen the new ones was on line
$315.00 plus tax and shipping. Also a $20.00 fee to ship to your FFL dealer so, I think it was a fair deal for the condition of the gun.
