I swore I'd never buy one of these unless I got a CA CCW but I just couldn't pass up on this little beauty. Model 337-1 (PC 103054, 3.2" bbl, hi-viz) in barely used shape (pretty much ANIB, or almost near there). Found it at Imbert & Smithers, talked a little wheelin' and dealin for $525. Still a bit high, but this thing sold for $780 back in '99 when it was made so who's complaining - it doesn't have a lock! :)

What a deal!

That's an awesome kit / trail gun w/ the adjustable back sight. Snake shot, plinking, self defense gun all in one and so light to carry! I would have bought it at that price...well done! If it ever goes up for sale...;)

Perfect woods gun! Congrats on finding it.

I think that was a great price.
Congrats on the deal.

It's starting the wheels spinning in my head to get one as well.:D

Wow glad you guys think that's a good price! :) Not being into the AirLights I wasn't quite sure, but I knew if I walked away from it I'd kick myself later for not having jumped. I tried to do a quick google on my phone and saw a hit for GunsAmerica @ $599 NIB, so almost-NIB at $525 seemed just fair, not stellar. But then again, we're in CA...

For small rodent backpacking (snakes, etc. - think Yosemite or something?) what type of round is the ammo of choice with an AirLight? I've never carried on a hike/backpack, so no clue...

Nice find, Rivvie! I like the semi-square barrel profile on those puppies.

Airlights in this area (L.A.) at some shops are in the $800-900 range. Limited # of dealers here usually means higher prices. : ((

Snake shot first two, your favorite the rest, I like Fed 129 gr Hydra Shok (light) or Buff Bore 158 gr LSWC + P (heavy) in my 442.
