If its in the name of helping him out, the offer is fair.
bumper nuts for letting his wife tell him to sell his gun.
one magazine*, box and docs I would offer $375 topps.
*FootNote: Glocks come with two magazines, so something stinks 'bout
YOUR deal. Could be that he is try'in to sell you a USED** firearm~? for $400?
** meaning a prior owner, excluding himself
I dont think your friends gun is worth $400.
I would say start at $450....thats the price of a G19 with standard sights at most large distributors.
Subtract $50 for being used.
Subtract $50 for being second gen (older frame)
Subtract $15 for the missing magazine
Seems its worth $335ish....
I'd offer him $275.00 for a gen2 with 1,10rnd mag. If you want to be nice take him to dinner. If you are buying a gun, then it is a business transaction and you can play ball. If he doesn't like your price he will counter, then you can decide. It is nothing personal, and you both should know this.
Please reconsider $400.00 unless it's your boss and you are fishing for a raise.
Anyway, I dropped by, looks spankin' new, he did have both mags, kydex holster, original box and papers and another bag of stuff i didn't even look at, I offered 4 bills for it. Will pick it up next week.
If you aren't ashamed of your offer, it is too hight.
I couldn't have said it better!
Anyway ID Shooting... Glad you are happy, hope you enjoy the G19. Post pics would be nice
"Post pics would be nice"
Here you go!
Not sure how I missed it before, but I didn't even see the accesory rail the first time I looked, addmittedly, it wasn't a very long look since I could tell his wife was jumpy with it being out of thier closet (I just don't get gun haters).
Anyway, it IS a Gen 3 G19, two 10 rounders (must be a Seatle thing I guess) box, papers, cleaning and loading tools, Fobus holster and dual mag carrier, and a bonus 230 rounds of 124 gr Speer Gold Dots.
Says he bought the package all at the same time and only shot it in one session. If we do the math, 1 50 round box of LEO grade GD and 1 250 round box of practice GD ammo = 300 rounds, he had 230 left, that means this gun only has 70 rounds through it
SOB, most of us will easily double that in one afternoon
All for $400.00 clams and out his door I went.
Whaddya think, can I now officialy wear a "Got Glock?" t-shirt and start bad-mouthing 1911's? hehehehe
So, how did I do?
