One of the local pawnshops here in town has a 24/7 (12+1) 4.2" barrell for sale. There are asking $449 plus tax. My question is this a reasonable price. I'm thinking of offering $425 and not buy if they refuse my offer. I thought it would look nice next to my MilPro PT145. And since my wife ran off with my Remington .45 R1 i am still looking for another pistol..:)

$449 for a 24/7 seems steep to me. Bud's has the G2's for less than $400.

What caliber and in what condition? Also, Have you looked any where else to get a price comparison?
( Guessing .45 ACP :p )
It never hurts to ask. The worst thing they can tell you is "No" and you still have your money in your pocket to shop elsewhere.
Have you also looked online?

Taurus 1247451G2C12 24/7 45 G2 3.5" 12RBL $397.00 SHIPS FREE
Its the 3.5 Inch barrel tho in .45

Taurus 1247459G212 24/7 45 G2 4.2" 12RSS $442.00 SHIPS FREE
This one is the same one I am thinking you talking about. Stainless slide, 4.2 inch barrel and 12+1 capacity.
$442 for it.

I can't find the all blue/black one to match prices.

That is about the right price for a NIB 24/7G2 in SS. If that is what it is, you might as well take a shot at it, all they can do is say "NO".

Yes it is a .45 acp Iknow I can get them online for cheaper but I still have to pay someone for a ffl transfer. Around here it is anywhere from $25 to 10% of the pistol cost.
This is the blue/black version and NIB..

Yep. For that $$, if it is a G2, and you can afford it, might as well take the shot. By the time you factor in the other costs, I don't mind paying a little bit more even, if it gets in my hand now, and supports a local business. As a G2C-45 owner, even though mine has had 'issues', I'm still confident that my new replacement (en route from Miami) will live up to all the other good reviews here.

Anything over $400 is really pushing it on almost any semi Taurus. Check out CDNNinvestments their catalog has just about the lowest prices you can get anywhere. Even lower than most dealer costs.

Too high in my opinion. If they are selling it for $449 it means they think it's worth $400 and they loaned $200 on it. If it's been around a while they will take $350.

I gave $500 for a gun they had marked $700, and $300 for another they had marked $420. They are always willing to deal, and they don't take any offense.

Yeah, That is true. You would still need to do a transfer. Plus, Wait for it to ship and what not.
Like others said, the worst thing that can happen is they say no. Throw it out there for that $350-$375
And go up as you need to if you want it bad enough. Never hurts to look around if you want to or can spare the time to do so.

Well, I am in Texas and last week I paid $360.00 for a brand new 24/7 Pro DS with stainless slide. It came with original box, receipts, and magazines. Sounds like your paying about $100 more farther north which is understandable since its farther inland. I wouldn't pay more $400.

to high in my neighborhood!
I paid 349-(45) & 379-(9MM) respectively for my two 24/7 C Pro D/S in stainless about 3 years ago at the height of the gun sales period.
they are now selling at about 329 to 349 here.

I bought my PT24/7 SS 9mm Pro DS 17+1 Feb. 2011 at Academy for $299.99 + Tax. Had the choice of 9mm or 40. If I had it to do over again, I'd buy both. Ain't hindsight wonderful.

Pawn shop finds are good, price is bit too high. Here's my pawn shop logic. Asking price 449.oo. I always carry cash $$$. Ask then their best out the door price. If they say what's on the tag--- start walking its too fresh to sell. If they say 400 then they probably have 200 in it. Offer them 280 Or 300. They make money you go home happy. Never show a need or excitement, like with a car salesmen and a dog never let them sense the fear/excitement. I have made it all the way to the door only to have them call me back to rehash the deal. Then start the price conversation again. And it you make it to the door then it was not meant to be. best of luck...
