I've recently been thinking of selling or trading in my USP40c for a SIG P220R Crimson Trace.

I would say it is 90-95% condition. The only signs of wear are on the barrel, locking block, and sights (holster wear). I think I've put about 400 rounds (mostly Win. White Box and UMC, some PMC) through her, without a single malfunction other than the slide failing to hold open 2-3 times, which was most likely an ammo issue.

The store I brought it in to today offered $400+/-. I've never sold one of my guns before, but that doesnt seem too great of a price, considering the retail value and excellent condition of the pistol. (whatever I end up doing, I wont be selling at this particular store; the dumbass who checked out the pistol rode the slide forward, twice, then proceeded to try and force the hammer down with his hand...AFTER I told him to decock by depressing the control lever )

So, what are some thoughts? What is a good price to expect? Should I even bother selling, or just buy the SIG and have two pistols?

Thanks!

New ones are going for about $600 w/ 2 10rd mags.

Assuming the same package, I'd try for $500 and see what you get. I'd probably end up taking $450.

In the condition you describe, it's worth ~$400 to any dealer. Remember, they have to make money, and taking your gun for $500 and then selling it for $550 is NOT making money to them. They're not going to get it sold for any more than $550 unless they find a drooling retard with an absolute need for your gun.

You're much better off putting it in the paper or the EE.

There are only 2 reasons to EVER sell a gun. Reason #1 You don't like it or its a POS Reason #2 You killed someone with it illegally and ya need to get rid of evidence. Save your money and buy the 220R and then you'll have 2 pistols. You can always use 2 pistols especially when your drunk and seeing double.

I hope most of that was sarcasm...but in any case neither rule applys to me

I had considered the EE, but I'm still not 100% on how it works; here's what I gathered

1.)post an ad in the correct forum
2.) someone is interested, lets me know, gives address/info of FFL
3.) I contact and ship pistol to FFL
4.) FFL holds pistol until payment recieved, and takes a % for their services in the transfer

This how it goes, or am I missing something?

I think it would work more like:
1)place add in forum
2) someone see add and makes deal
3) they send you money order and ink signed copy of ffl
4) you send gun to ffl
5) you're done
6) they pick up gun from ffl after 4510,brady ck, and pay any transfer $$
