Found a used 1911-A1 Blackend SS Combat with tritium sights. Gun is not even a year old. Gun store wants $650.00 plus tax. Just want to know if it's fair or too much?

As I can tell the gun has not been fired that much and there is no holster wear and only a couple of small scratches.

Also comes with three mags.

See if the gun shop will let you take the gun into a dark room to test the night sights. If they're weakening, that should give you some wiggle room off of the price, IMO.

A rule of thumb *I* use is to take a NIB price of a gun & then deduct 15-20% off of it for being 98-99%. I deduct more if it's 90-95%, obviously. Whether or not I get it is a different story.............

What is the NIB price of this gun, BTW? I haven't seen a blackened SS version in a shop or show in years, IIRC.

It was purchased last year this time. It is a springfield 1911-A1 blackened SS combat model with tritium sights. I think this is the gun I am getting. I have been holding out for a Taurus PT1911, but they are hard to find. So this is it. I am going to try and get it lower though. We'll see

You'll get crucified as I did from the Taurus kool-aid drinkers for that............
