    225.00-250.00

    I say that because a P89 can be had for around 300-325 NIB as can a P95. Both newer versions of the Ruger 9mm platform.

    In Utah, the going price for a p85 is about $300. You don't say whether it is a MK II or the original P85 and whether it has the safety modification Ruger installed, indicated by a mkII stamped on the decock/safety lever.

    That might affect the price some, but it's up to the buyer in the end.

    The safety mod

    With the original P85 pistols, there was a chance of the firing breaking in a certain way, and when you decocked it, it would fire a cartridge in the chamber. The MK II modification corrected that problem.

    If the model on the slide says RUGER P85 MK II or there is a MK II on the decocker lever the safety mod has been done, if it does NOT have either of those marks, the pistol can be sent to Ruger for the modification free of charge. You do have to pay postage, but when they return the pistol to you, they will include a magazine to reimburse your postage cost.
