I just won an excellent condition AT 2000 PS 9mm two tone for $485.00 on Gunbroker. No box or papers and only one 10-rd mag. Did I do OK or did I get hosed?
Anyone know where to find some 15-rd mags? Do CZ or Baby Eagle mags work in these guns? I'm excited -- always wanted to have one of these - especially the PS model.

I've got a nice used .380 that I paid $360 for.
I'd suspect you got a decent price.

Try CDNN for mags. I got a couple new factory mags, with included finger extension, for a really low price. As I recall about $10.

Never heard of them, which prompted me to look them up in my 2006 BBGV. Looks like your price was on par with what a gun in 85% condition would be worth. Depending upon the broker, means that you got a fair to middling deal. All of the auction sites overate a large portion of what is sold, it it the seller and not the site that is responsible for evaluation of the gun. I generally would consider the description minus about 30% to get a realistic idea. Of course there are some that are accurate.

Thanks for the responses. M2carbine, what kind of recoil does that .380 produce? Is it as nasty as most of those small blow-back .380s I've shot? Does anyone know what the slide is made of -- stainless or carbon steel?
Thanks for your help, Brett
