Ruger made the Redhawk, Blackhawk, and GP-100 revolvers in .357 mag. All were also available in stainless steel or blued steel.
The condition is stated as the percent original finish remaining for blued guns. Stainless guns are inspected very closely for polishing on the sharp edges (which would show as loss of finish on a blued gun) and rated on the same percentage scale. The bore, forcing cone edges, timing, and cylinder lockup must all be good. The gun's condition must be consistent throughout and not be refinished.
Given the above, it's possible to put a value on it..... but even then, there are regional variations in price. Also, since our pal Obama was elected, the price on handguns, AR rifles, and AK rifles has increased substantially.... they are currently selling for considerably over "book".
Not nearly enough information to even guess at. There is a lot of information on the pistol so please add that. Then is the pistol blued or stainless steel? The barrel length, grips and sight information. A picture would be great.
Log onto GunBroker.com; that'll tell you everything you want to know. My advice? Deduct 10%, or so, from whatever your pistol is selling for on GunBroker; and you'll have a reasonable face-to-face local market value.
