Always looking for a "deal". Aren't we all?

I agree with Arland that the market is softer than I can remember. bhunted had some fine guns for sale and reasonably priced but they didn't move.

If you want to get the most $ you can (all sellers do duh! ) maybe closer to 2020 election would fetch higher prices. Right now, I wouldn't consider a "deal" on a 99% used gun over 70% of the lowest new price I could find on the Net.

Good luck.

The guitar is a Stagg acoustic-electric. It sounds marvelous. Not a bad looker either. Also a special note for this guitar. I only played it at church a handful of times, so it has been blessed.













Sorry if this is not allowed.

(ppssst, I'll post it on Reverb.com if you want to see it....)

Thanks for the reply. Could you explain it a bit more for me? Are you saying I'm asking too much?

I'm not saying anything about your prices, they are yours to ask. Just offering my personal opinion on what I consider a "deal" in the used gun market today.

Say I really wasn't looking for an UC II but someone had a 99% example at around 70% of the price of a new one at a discount seller like Grabagun. That might motivate me to click the buy button even though I wasn't otherwise on the hunt for an UC II.

Example: Grabagun has a new UC II two-tone for $713. A "deal" on a 99% used gun would be 70% or less. $500 max including any accessories. That's something I would consider a "deal" and likely allow the seller to move the gun reasonably fast.

Ok, I see what you mean and understand. Thanks!!

I'm open to offers from anyone on any gun but I'll do more homework and get better detailed on an asking price. In the meantime, I'm happy to answer any questions on any gun.

Hmmm, I also have 3 scopes I am wanting to sell since I have fewer rifles. LOL

I'll be back....

Thanks again for all information anyone provides. Don't pull any punches. I like honesty. Ok I'm lying....or am I?

I'll post pictures either tonight or tomorrow depending on my evening schedule.

Let me know if my prices are in line.

Bish, your calling it a Raptor II. My eyes aren't what they used to be. The pistol in your pic looks like a Stainless Raptor (Pro)??
The lone name Raptor indicated to me (before pic) that it was a full size pistol.
