    Pricing advice.

    Got a text from a good friend... a friend of his wants to buy a gun. They're in short supply and I have one. We're talking Glock 32 (.357 Sig). I have said nothing about selling it, but in fact it has fallen out of my carry rotation and has sat in the safe for a long time. So I would not be terribly sad to sell it. Anyway, I looked on Gunbroker and the only one I found was going for $700. Armslist has one for $600. Except for the fact that there are none available, it would be about $540 new.
    I have a couple of extra mags and ammo I could throw in...
    My friend is a good friend, but I don't know this other guy at all. So how big a [insert creative insult here] would I be if I asked $700 with 4 mags and some ammo? (Money would be helpful these days...)

    You can ask for $700, what he is willing to pay is another story. If he wants it bad enough, he may buy it. If he doesn't want it that bad, he will not.

    I would not pay $700 for the brandiest newest Glock in any caliber.

    I say it is whatever the market will bear. I recently sold a 12ga shotgun for three times what I had in it. I didn't really want to sell it, but needed some quick cash. I priced it high and figured this would give me some haggle room. First contact bought it with no haggle.

    If your friend's friend understands the current market, $700.00 is not a bad price.

    Blue label price is about $400 but again, they're unavailable. I would think anything between $600-$700 would be fair with extras you mention.

    Do you want the highest price you can get for it or do you want to sell it to your friend for a fair price? Only you can answer that question.

    Well, it's a friend of a friend...so...

    700.00 sounds like a fair start considering that extra mags have to be in the 35-40 range, right?

    It let's him bargain you down 25-50 bucks and you both feel good.
    “Historically, freedom is a rare and fragile thing . . . Freedom has cost the blood of millions in obscure places and in historic sites ranging from Gettysburg to the Gulag Archipelago . . .That something that cost so much in human lives should be surrendered piecemeal in exchange for visions and rhetoric seems grotesque. Freedom is not simply the right of intellectuals to circulate their merchandise. It is, above all, the right of ordinary people to find elbow room for themselves and a refuge from the rampaging presumptions of their ‘betters’.” Thomas Sowell

    Due to availability $700 seems like a fair place to start negotiations if you're offering extra mags and ammo with it as you said.
    PT22, 85 Poly, 865, 605, M44.... what's next?!

    I have acquired many used Glock pistols (I have 13). Most i have paid is about $450-$475. Trade value of $500.

    What you’re going to get is the neighborhood of what he’s willing to pay.

    If you get close to what you ask, then, good.

    Ask what you want to get out of it. If he wants it badly enough, he will pay it. Both happy. If doesn't want it, keep it and still both happy!
