Hi, welcome to Just Answer and thanks for your question!



In checking into current prices for the model you've listed, it looks like you could expect receiving anywhere in the neighborhood of $250-$400. Guns priced higher than that aren't receiving bids. The .38 Special was a staple for many years in law enforcement and military use, as well as civilian use. S&W used the "police/military" markings or denotations as a marketing tool. In reality, civilians could buy the same gun. If the gun is brand new and never fired, and the box is original and in good condition, you might expect to be on the higher end of what I quoted you. If you're looking to sell, I always recommend taking it to a gun or pawnbroker in your city and having it looked at personally. This always takes the "ballpark figure" out of the equation and you can get a better feeling for what your gun would fetch locally or nationally if you wanted to go that route. Best wishes!
