I posted a question a while back on used PT 1911. I chickened out and ended up not buying the used gun.

I have been wanting a railed version PT 1911. I call a local dealer and they didn't have it in. They told me that if I order a gun they didn't have in stock and paid for it in full up front, they sell it at cost plus 10%.

Anyone know what the cost is on these guns. Just want to have an idea before I deal with them. I have another local dealer that is selling it for $540 plus tax which isn't bad compaired to what I'm seeing posted around the internet.

I live in Kentucky so buds isn't that great of a deal for me since I have to pay state tax. Buds is about $10 dollars cheaper then local, but not worth the 45 minute drive. I was just curious to see what these guys have in some of these guns. I think $540 is a good deal, but if I can get it at cost plus 10%, I would think it might be cheaper then the $540.

$540 is a good price for the railed version. It's even a good price for a non-railed version in my area. Each dealer will have different pricing because each dealer has their own distributors they deal with. Depending on the dealers volume on a certain brand is what determines their cost from their distributors for the gun & what they can sell it for to you to make a profit. Cost plus 10% is a very fair dealer to work with but you need to ask him what his price is. Geographics also plays a part in the dealer setting his price. I say go for it.......
