i have an oppertunity to buy an early M1917 S&W. it is in the low 8,000 s/n, has the grooved hammer, case colors, 90% and nice bore/chambers. now the "but": but someone cut the front sight at an angle so it resembles the sight on a colt new service. any ideas what it's worth?

Koshnaranek,

It's been a LONG time since I've seen a M1917 in 90% condition. As for the front site being reshaped that's not a problem. It can always be built up and reshaped in the original contours.

The pistol is worth what you are willing to pay. If you think it's a good deal grab it!
