factory grips, but look kinda cheap.
357 mag

what is a good price for this gun...thanks
well it isn't a stainless second generation in .357 I can tell you that much.

I get real cautious about advising anyone on the Colt SAA. A true second gen .357 would be a flag to me and I would want to make sure it was a genuine factory nickel job.

To be a bit blunt bout it, Colt SAAs command such a price there are dozens of "remade" guns out there and, if you are going to invest the money a good one will cost, you are best served by doing a lot of research so you KNOW what you are handling. Almost impossible to come close to the value, or authenticity (which a lot of the value hinges on) based on a loose description on the internet. Anybody who could give you an accurate evaluation would have to examine it.
