What is the value of a Smith and Wesson garter gun, one shot for 22 short bullet?
S&W made a couple of different single shot guns. Does your gun look like a semi-auto or revolver? What is the barrel length? Is it a single action or can it be fired in double action?
Another way that I can identify which gun you have is by the trigger guard. Is it held in with a pin at the rear of it or is it part of the frame? What is the serial number?
Trigger guard is part of the whole frame...I cannot find a serial number Jane
Your gun is a 3rd Model Single Shot made between 1909 and 1923. There were 6,949 produced. The finish can be blued or nickel plated with checkered hard plastic or wood grips. The values are:
excellent-$1050, very good-$875, good-$650, fair-$450, poor-$275.
I hope this helps you,
