    I’m being offered this in trade, my end is worth ~$550.
    4” S&W 66 no dash in otherwise great condition.

    If the rest of the gun is not pitted I'd say $400 tops.

    I'm no S&W guru, but I don't think I'd want more than $400.00 in it with that damage.

    offer them $450, disassemble everything and soak it in vinegar

    It will remove both lead from the bore and most of that rust and give it a nice dull patina ;)

    BTW how bad do you need to neglect a stainless gun for it to rust that darn bad.

    I can't tell from the pic - what sort of damage are we looking at?

    So, he’s giving away something worth $550 with the intention of receiving something of at least equal value...no?
