Is it the new TALO edition with the Super Blackhawk hammer? If so, they go for $550-600 brand new.
I'd only pay $550 for a TALO Birdshead used, if it was stainless and in like new condition.

If it an older model, than that price is OK if it's in Exc. condition.

If it's hardly used, and you can get it for $550 OTD it's not bad, there are a bunch on GunBroker for $570-600 but then you have shipping, transfer etc.

A gun in hand, that you can see and check out is worth it, I would go $550 all in but only if I really NEEDED it, it's not a "tear your pants getting your wallet out" price.

Well I had 550 cash in my wallet. Had the day off. Went in to the local store all set to buy the birdshead. It was gone. So I saved myself 550 bills.

As popular as the run of New Vaquero birdsheads has been, I have no doubt that after a reasonable time to empty the marketplace and build up demand, there will be another run of them. I'm dead sure of it. I have blued and stainless and they ain't goin' nowhere!

Not quite as desirable or light, but if they offer a birdshead in .357, I'd buy one in a heartbeat.
