I have been looking for a nice 9mm revolver for a while but I think the price on this one is a little out of line. What do you guys think?

Heck no! I think the price is a typo, it should read $8250.00!

I don't care if it is NIB and perfect, it isn't worth it to me.

Sigh. "Kidbillions" is at it again.

:rolleyes:

Dude just trolls for suckers.

The sad thing is, he has some decent guns but his prices are just strange. Is he just trying to impress people with all the guns he has? He clearly isn't trying very hard to sell them.

Pass on it. Like Jim March says, the dude is trolling for suckers.

I lucked out years ago & bought mine for $125. :) It pays to know and be liked by people.

On the other hand, the number of other 9mm Speed Sixes I've seen online or in person is precisely 0.

The link was meant as a joke. I have seen people post kidbillions guns before as a laugh. He has crazy prices on all his guns. I am looking for a 9mm revolver but NOT for that kind of price!

Heck yes it's high. I'd pay $310.00 and no more.

A stainless 2 3/4" is for sale locally for $300. It is VERY clean. Tell me why a 9mm speed six(with 10 moon clips) is so great, and I'll buy it.

That listing has been on there for a LOOOOONG time. Like at least a year now. He's going to have that gun for a long time. Btw, Taurus is coming out with a titanium 5 shot 9mm pretty soon.

$300 is a fair price for one of those. $825, is a little to pricey.:rolleyes:

Gordo,

I'm not going to try to talk you into it, I've been looking for one. If the guy will take $280, will you give me a #?

Actually, I think a few of us have figured out KidBillions.

On GunBroker you apparently don't have to pay a listing fee, just a sales fee.

So, he lists his guns at outrageous prices and waiting for someone to e-mail him so that they can dicker behind the scenes.


Uhm...

Hum...

OK, maybe not.

I just visited his listed website.

Christ, the prices are the same there, too.

I can only HOPE that those prices are actually fantasy prices...

On top of the outrageous price he's asking for the gun, he wants $45.00 for shipping!
