Hey guys, this is my first time to ever submit something to any post ever. I’m trying to establish the value of a 745. I actually have two. One is a 6 inch heavy ventilated barrel with a non fluted cylinder. The other one has a fluted cylinder with a 4 inch and a 6 inch heavy ventilated barrels. It looks like they have barely been used if at all. I have everything for both revolvers including the Box, all the paperwork and tools that came with it when it was new. I know before I can get a realistic answer on the value you’re going to want to see some pictures. I don’t have any pictures at this point, but if we assumed they were in 95% condition what would a value be?

Welcome to the DWF!  745s (Stainless 45 Colt) are not frequently found.  I bought mine in 2011 for $1483 and have seen auction prices at of just above the $2000 mark.  In fact, one went for a BIN price of $3999 but I believe that to be an anomaly:

Gun Broker Auction #394493985 ended 17 FEB 14 with BIN purchase $1550- no extras.
GB Auction 623201217, Sold BIN $3999 10″ and 6″ VH and box 24 FEB 17
Gb item 784615817, Norwich 1st Issue, sold $2149, VH10″ no extras

Technically, the glass is always full; half liquid, half air....

You are a fortunate man to have TWO 745’s.  As Ron stated, they are pricey and will bring a premium at auction.  

Anything worth doing is worth doing well.
