Default intercontinental arms super dakota 44 mag

Ok, so this is a question I'm asking for curiosity, NOT because this is a gun I'm buying.
Here is the scenario-there is a LARGE man I know (he is 6'2" and weighs upwards of 350-375 pounds) who has NEVER shot a handgun. I think he has shot a shotgun once or twice, but so far as handguns go, he's a "virgin". Anyways, a friend of his has a intercontinental arms super dakota 44 mag that he inherited and since this guy I know (we'll call him Fred) is so big, the buddy at work said he'd sell "Fred" the 44, for $400. Obviously it's used and the friend from work doesn't know how many rounds have been put through the thing.
Ok, so here are my questions-
1. What are some brand new, comparable handguns, that are comparable in price that would be better options for "Fred"?
2. Doesn't $400 seem like a lot to ask for the gun?
3. Would you suggest someone who has never fired a 44 mag try one out to see if they even like the way it feels?

Any other input? Thanks!

Frankly, I'm asking because I know there have to be better, new options for "Fred" and I feel the friend is hosing him so far as the price goes.

Yeah $400 seem high unless it is customized.

Look like Ruger Super Blackhawk. You can probably find Ruger in many ranges as rental gun. Try in 44 Mag and see if it is still desirable to your friend.

400 doesn't seem like a bad price. but i have been seeing some 44s for good prices lately, probably because their ammo is getting really expensive. something to consider before purchasing one
