My brother is selling his USP .45 and I am thinking about buying it. The pistol is a blued variant 1 with the controls on the left side. Date stamped KK. The pistol shows some signs of holster wear and carrying but nothing too excessive, probably in the upper 90% range. The sights are Trijicon night sites but the front site has lost its glow. He has one ten round magazine, the case and manual. Without committing robbery, what should I offer him?

$525 would be a fair price

I'd go $450 because it'll cost about $50 to get another mag ;)

10-Ring or others, are you serious about $450?

$500 would be a fair offer. it'd be a good deal for you but not too good. or offer him $100 and let him use the gun whenever he asks for it.

I saw one priced at $690. It was owned by a former State P and was in good shape. The sights were dim, but they still worked. That was a show price for it. In reality it was probably worth $575 and it did come with 3 mags. Good luck with it. It is an excellent gun, the autodecock and D/A feature is nice. I would rather carry that on my belt loaded than a C/L 1911(from the standpoint of having one in the pipe without the hammer back.)

$500 is a fair offer. Between new tritium and mags you are right up there anyway. Maybe you can do some horse trading and get the price down even more without feeling like you're robbing him. Good luck. Mike

Thanks for the replies so far. He said he would sell it to me for $350, but he did not know what it was worth and I am not that evil.
