You should have already bought it.......yes, get it.
I will say that I got rid of mine because it had some problems, but for $75 jump on it.

But am I taking advantage? I wont do that with one of the guys that work for me....couldnt live with myself for being dishonest to a good guy.

I havent seen any used one really on gunbroker

Sounds like too good a price. It's either a problem gun or damaged, or the guy has no clue what it's worth and not a good concept of gun prices, or the guy is really hard up for cash.

I dont think he knows what a good price for it is. He is leaving for Japan soon and just needs to get rid of it.

May have a look/shoot it and see how it goes.

Buy it!

I bought a Browning Buck Mark for $100 a few months ago. The guy was happy as can be to have the money.

From a .22 pistol competitor's perspective, it's a piece of crap. But I'd jump on it. Fun little plinker and practice pistol for 75 bucks. No way I'd pay regular price, but for 75 bucks, I'd get it!:)

It's a hell of a fun toy for the price of a few boxes of centerfire ammo. In San Diego, I often shot next a SEAL who did a lot of his practice shooting with one.

If he's selling the gun for $75, there's something wrong with it and you are the one who is being taken advantage of here. Use the $75 to pick up some ammo -- or take your wife to dinner and a movie.

I'll give you $100 for it.

For $75.00 take it if something is wrong with it send it to S&W and they will fix it. Add $200.00 to that price and it is still a good deal.:) If you do not want to buy it send me his contact info.:D

Unless something is wrong with it - it's easily worth 200-300 dollars.

Ive been looking for one of these used, and I think the cheapest I have seen so far was about $250. New the best price I have seen is $320. If there is nothing wrong with it, this is a steal. Even if there is something wrong with the gun it could still be a good buy.

What KY wildcat said is about spot on for our area.

On another forum I asked about that gun and the Sig. They both have their haters and lovers. After what I read, it seems that if you shoot it how it was intended then it will work fine for you. Make sure you get a copy of the instructions and shoot what they say to shoot and it should do just fine. They are incredibly fun to shoot.

I had one, and I wouldn't pay 75 for another one.

Save your money towards a gun without any low temperature alloys in it.

Read up on them, they are notoriously not reliable, but some also swear by them, seems they are SUPER picky with ammo, and not all that accurate.

I would tell the guy you think it's honest value. I would not screw him over.

May 1, 2010, 04:21 PM
Buy it IF the guy will allow you to pull the slide and look for chips and wear on the rails and contact surfaces. Mine shoots just fine and has no wear after thousands of rounds and is 100% reliable. Others have problems - I don't know if the factory let some go that were out of spec, or if it's a monday morning worker issue, but some of them just ain't right. Most of them are just fine and I'd snap it up like a duck on a june bug for $75, IF I could carefully examine it first.

I would do it, and I hated my P22. For $75, you can give it a go. If you don't like it, you can sell it for more than you paid for it still.

A guy was just flamed on THR for doing nearly the same thing - practically stealing guns from another person at 1/4th their market value....


May 1, 2010, 06:45 PM
Let's be honest though, the P22 is barely worth $75. :)

I picked up the target P22 used for $275 and I have been very pleased with it. I bought it for my daughter, but I can't pry her away from my Ruger Mark III hunter...

I used to own one. It ran like a champ. I used it as a suppressor host. Shot everything I put through it and I could reliably load the mag with 10 rounds of .22 short. It's not a bad gun. It's not going to run circles around a Mark iii but it's a decent gun.

Got it, cleaned it, hope to shoot it this week.

I can see why they dont cost much. Not a Mk III or Buckmark are they....
