My stepmom is broke and wanted to know if I wanted to buy my father's old pistol from her. I told her I'd give her $300. Is that a fair price?

That's a fair price. A gun store would give you $200 in trade so they could sell it for $300.

Sounds fair if it is an excellent condition. I'd go $350 if it is no-lock.

yes. Especially in this situation.

Regular prices do not apply,. It's family in need.

If you and your old man were close, I'd go full retail to get it if not more.


Regular buying used, little high to me.

Lock, or no lock?

Normally this is an important question for S&W gun pricing, but the 442 and 642 are two models they still offer without a lock.

I wish I could get another 3" Model 60 without a lock. I have one and would never part with it.

Just give her some cash? I never make money on family or friends.

I ain't lookin' to make money off her, I'm trying to give her a fair price.

Given the situation I think it's fair. My new, 642 no lock was $350 out the door.
Link Posted: 1/7/2012 5:15:48 PM EDT
Looks like used 642's on GB have been selling at $275-300. Add $50 for the crimson trace grips.

If it's a stock gun $300 is fair.

Is she the one that gave you hell for not going to Detriot for Christmas?

Thanks.

Right now, I can't. I just helped out someone else and I'm not exactly a Rockafeller.
Link Posted: 1/7/2012 9:41:36 PM EDT
I think so

300 is on the positive side of fair... New go around 350-370ish locally.
225-250 is a "good" price locally.

For family? 300 is a good price.
