    38 westlake conversion m/l nitro match revolver-what's it worth ?

    An elderly friend has asked me to sell a couple of his M/L revolvers as he's giving up shooting for good. One of them is a Stainless and brass .38 Westlake Nitro conversion target revolver, fitted with slab sided match grade barrel, Patridge ramped front sight, fully adjustable rear. It comes with it's loading press. This is the first one of these I've come across and don't have a clue what it's worth, can anyone help with a valuation please ? I've looked on the interweb but none for sale at the moment. As soon as I've got an idea as to it's value I'll put it up for sale on here. Pictures below.

    Hello
    I'm not an expert,but I would think this a very early conversion as it appears to be based on a Remington 1858 single action revolver, whereas the more recent Westlake conversions are based on modern double action revolvers.
    Anyway, even an earlier conversion should be worth somewhere in the the region of 400-500 for a realistic private sale.
