Saw a Browning Hi-Power in a gun shop today. It's the Standard Model with wood grips and adjustable rear sights With box and papers. Looked to be shot little, if any. Trigger was pretty crisp and decent. I figured out it was made in 1993. They want $650. Is that a high, low, or fair price? thanks

I'd say that's a bit high. My local shop offers a nib Browning Hi Power for $680+tax.

I'd offer 600 and see what they say.

I know guns are cheaper in Texas, so I guess it depends on your location too.

I got my practical BHP that is a vintage '92, for about $450. I did show some wear on the frame / slide, but I did get 4 mags w/ it and a holster. Great gun any way you look at it ;)

New blued/adj. sight/walnut gripped BHP's generally sell for around $700-750when I see them. $650 is a little high in my view, but not out of this world high. The blued guns do seem to be holding their value well.

NIB Mark III, fixed sights, 2 mags for 430 + 20 shipping from Gunbroker in Sept...with a little patience you can do a lot better than 600

Thanks all. I got it for $550. It's an S/N 245 series, made in 1993, polished blue with adj sights, box, and manual. Looking at it the second time when I picked it up, I was surprised how nice the finish is. I'd rate it at 98%, because I have no proof it was never fired. Hopefully it'll shoot as good as it looks.
