Micro Raptor 9 - NOT FOR SALE just a question

I am not trying to sell this here but it's more of a question. I currently own a Micro Raptor 9mm that has had (1) mag fired thru it and its in 100% mint condition. Just not liking the size that much so I'm looking at trying to sell it locally and was wondering what I could get for it? Again, I am not looking to sell it on here just asking a question. Thanks!

Did that but curious as whether or not a private sale would be different.

My experience is a LGS will give you what they say is 60% of their retail, used. To them used is used.

If you have a large shooting community around you, or have a friend who is an FFL you can get more, but patience and the size of the potential buying pool are the big issues. You need to find the person who wants it...not just one like it, but it!

Depending on the laws where you live, gun shows and their parking lots can be decent places to make connections (or get hurt and robbed).

If it was easy, everybody would be doing it.

Trading it at a LGS or selling it on a forum might be your best bet.

If you live in Wisconsin, drive over. I want to switch to a 9x19mm.

For some reason, you don't see too many used Micro 9 Raptors for sale. I've been looking locally for last year or so and have not had one come up on the sites I monitor. I just did a quick check on GB and there were no used ones either.

To me, that indicates the selling price might be a bit stronger than say a Micro 9 Stainless or some of the others that would be considered comparable (not that the stainless is a true comparable since the Raptor is a CS model). If I were to see one listed for $700 - $750, I would consider that pretty reasonable if it were in good condition. Below $700 would really get my attention..... this is just my perspective though.

Dang it Phil !! I just clicked the “buy it” button on Buds for a Browning 1911-22 Black Medallion. Wonder if I can sneak another purchase by Ms Tejun 🙈

Looking at your signature, I'd say what you need is an EVO.
