just looked at some Sig Sauer pistols.....WOW.   Cheapest was $3,000+  to well into the $5,000.

Maybe I remember when Colt 1911 were sold surplus for $17, but Ithink those number are a tad high.

how much would you spend for a handgun?????

Well lets face it. You squeeze the trigger and a hanky shoots out to wipe your tears of joy apparently. Not going to say they are just another plastic fantastic, but I do see more used Sig's on the shelf then Glick's at half the price.

1500 bucks will get you just about anything you could want, the rest is name.
...oh yeah! thats gonna hurt!

Not that much! I have had a hankering for a 480 Ruger or 454 Casull Super Redhawk, or a 41 mag Redhawk, but can't get past the @$1000. Yet I think nothing of dumping that or more on an(other) rifle.

Gun market pricing is waaay HIGH now for nearly any brand or type. The Super Redhawks are spendy for sure, never were "cheap", but maybe worth it. Keep looking.
Can't give you a set value in hard numbers on what I'd spend on a handgun. I guess we all spend on a handgun what we think is a value for our wants.

Maple,  I've hunted boar with Redhawk 41 mag, and my son uses a S&W  model 657 in 41 mag fo boar and deer.  good guns, great cartridge...better that 44 mag.

lots of clean nice 480 Ruger or 454 Casull in pawn shots...low mileage.  Toooooo much for most shooters.

I have shot 454, 480, 460 and 500s. The 480 is pretty nice, 454 is a bit more...no thanks to the 460 and 500! I love my 44 and 357, load em hot and they shoot very well. I like some recoil, but the 460/500 are just uncomfortable. The 480 doesn't operate at pressures any higher than the 357, 41 or 44. The 454 is a higher pressure round and the 460/500 are more yet. I just love the wheel guns.

remember.....the .41 mag is .410 & the .44 Mag is actually .429....not so much difference as far as bullet diameter goes. Not even sure if there was a .41 Mag back when I bought my .44 Mags., RBH & DWA.

IBD,
  Didn't Herter's sell a 41 mag about the same time they had the 44 mag in the 60's?

The 41 was meant to be used in law enforcement, as an in between 357-44. It never caught on, obviously, as it was too much for smaller statured people (officers) to handle. Much like the 10mm auto was a few decades later. I want one...bad...no reason other than just to reload and shoot.

Maple,
  I know of a Thompson Contender with a 41 Mag barrel that might be coming up for sale.  Probably not more than 50 rounds through it.  The owner is in assisted living now.  But you probably want a revolver?

The 41 mag came out for plice, better than 357, but less recoil.  It is a straight sided case with a RIM.  therefor only in revolvers.

Today most LEO have gone to autos, not compatable with 41 mag.  Just came out 10 years to late to get accepted, lost out to autos.

Yep, Herters hhad a 41 mag about 6 months before for Remington introduced it.  There was some thought that it was leaked out of Rem,, others believe that Rem copied it!!!!

Are those current panic prices on Sigs. 

I was looking at the P320 before all this panic buying and I thought they were a lot for a plastic gun but I didn't look at other models. 

I would pay more for a rifle than I would for a handgun. 

That being said, If I ran across a pre model 27 Smith&Wesson with a 3 1/2 inch barrel that was in good condition I just might pay more than I would for a rifle.

Lizard, not sure of that but they did sell the "Herter's .401 Powermag" and it may have been .403 dia bullet.

I found this info on the web & no mention of a .41 Mag handgun by Herters.....just the .401 Powermag.
Seems the .401 Powermag is .403 dia. bullet.
quote from i-net:
"George Herter had one proprietary handgun round, the 401 Powermag, housed in a strong and well made, and perhaps a bit homely, revolver. German gun company, J.P. Sauer and Sohn created the Powermag revolvers for Mr. Herter and supplied them chambered in 357, 401 and 44 magnums. Herters was a mail order company and at the time one could order a handgun through the mail. The Gun Control Act of 1968 pretty well ended Herters gun sales and tolled the bell for the Powermags."

ps: found this bit of info about Herters development of the proprietary .401 Powermag.

Herter's .401 PowerMag - GunBlast.com

https://www.gunblast.com/Fryxell_Herters401.htm

Feb 22, 2005  George Herter saw an opportunity for a wildcat that he had been playing with since the before the War, and in 1961 (3 years before the .41 Magnum was unveiled) he introduced the "Herter's Famous Custom Grade Super .401 PowerMag Revolver.


Maple: I think a "fair" price for a handgun is whatever the Buyer is willing to pay to Seller & as long as both are satisfied then it's a "Fair Deal"!Clap
