I'm thinking of selling it but I have no clue as to value. Anyone got an idea?
Like they said....
I don't own one or necessarily want one, but if I had one NIB, I'm not sure $500 would buy it.
The gun is as it came off the line. Frame & all parts still blue, no nicks scraches rust or other flaws. Still in Star plastic bag inside green plastic box. 3 mags, one new that came w/gun, a couple spare buffs. Actually frame is black anodozing on Al alloy frame.
$500 will not buy it, probably keep it. I’m a big PD .45 fan, own(ed) several over the years.
Stock up on buffers if you decide to shoot it a lot. Without a buffer or with a worn out buffer, the slide will beat the aluminum frame. I've seen a few Star PD's with cracked frames due to the owners not replacing the buffers on a regular basis.
A couple of officers on my department carried them as off-duty guns as we carried 1911s on-duty. Mine was very reliable and accurate with Speer's "Flying Ashtray" 200gr JHP. It felt slick in my hand due to the smooth backstrap and the unfinished wood grip panels had a tendency to pick up stains...a set of wrap around Pachmayr grips took care of that. A couple of incidents on the street with multiple suspects convinced me that I needed more than 6 rounds in a mag. I've always regretted selling that PD for a SIG 228
