Hi all,

I am considering selling the following guns. I've tried to fins some like it and want to know what people think of the fair value price. I have a general idea but always love input.

One is smith and wesson M-66 no dash with all stainless sights.

The next is a springfield loaded lightweight 1911.

Finally, is a sig p232 SL with an aluminum frame.

Attached are the pictures and would say 95 percent condition on themy all.

Thank you

Put up a real forsale ad based on previous posts' prices. Putting this on the board smacks of phony posting, whether it is or isn't.

About 5$ for those.

How does this qualify as phony posting? They are not ready for sale yet and I am curious. Makes sense to post it outside of classifieds to me. Then agin, what do I know? After all, I did post it on CAL Guns. God forbid that someone asks for advice or opinions.

The S&W model 66 should go for around $700+ in a free state. No idea what if any Cali premium. Also no idea on the other two, not my cup of tea.

I'll give you a 1/2lb. of bacon for all. Take it or leave it.

Till you look and see that half or more of them delete the asking price after it's been sold. Still can't think of a actual good reason why people do that.

What does "not ready for sale yet" mean?

You'll get plenty of opinions, and you know the old saying about "opinions".

My advise would be to check auction sites for completed auctions, you'll see the selling price. I'd also check the Equipment Exchange on arfcom for sold weapons.

My "opinion" would be in the $700ish range for all....plus or minus give or take a little. I would be in the plus range for the 66 if everything checked out. The other two probably in the minus range for me. YMMV.

Or you could list them for twice what they are worth and keep bumping them for days on end until you realize that nobody will pay your ridiculous price...sorry pet peeve....:rolleyes:

My guess is that they accepted a best offer that was lower than their original asking price.

How does this qualify as phony posting?

CalGuns marketplace doesn't allow bidding (auctions) and requires that price is posted with each listing. When a new member starts a thread such as yours, it looks as if he is trying to get the sale going without going to the marketplace.

That's why it might appear as phony at a glance. (I am by no means saying it is and I don't mind people asking questions about the value.)

S&W 66 - shooter grade 90%-500.00 original grips/box/docs? -700.00
Springfield 1911- shooter grade 90%+, box/docs?- 600.00
Sig .380- shooter grade 90%+, box/docs? - 600.00
Guns appear in good condition.

Value of the S&W 66 would also depend on barrel length. 3" would draw a premium and the 6" normally sells for less than a 2.5" or 4"

I'll trade you for a couple cats.

You could check gunbroker for an idea on price. Keep in mind that many are new and aren't sold in CA so there's a balance.

Also, keep in mind that unless the gun is impossible to get, you won't get what you paid for it. The buyer still has to pay BG check.

You can always try selling them for how much you bought them for.

Just put a price (after some research on some comparables) then OBO after, unless your price is firm.

Thanks for the advice guys. It really confirms that I am doing the right thing by checking certain websites. I really do not want to be one of those guys that posts a ridiculous price; whether or not they are doing it on purpose.

mfm34, I was not accusing you of wrongdoing, just letting you know that politely asking for price advice is a popular method for folks to use when they are being less than honest about their intentions.

You can take it any way you want, but mimicking the actions of the dishonest will frequently force us to believe you're part of that group.

Unfortunate, but it's how the world works.

OBO here means best offer up to the advertised price...

To me that means I'm willing to go $100 under what I listed...but then again I'm not desperate to sell anything...even my Sig 1911 :)

gunbroker.com to check prices.
Factor in off roster premium (I don't charge more than +15% if I'm not losing money)

Also, demand is everything. Everyone wants a Scar 17, they are currently scarce and hard to find, so prices for them are just stupid right now.
Your pistols are in demand but not super popular so will command less of a premium.

That baffles me. Typical here, though. Probably asks the same question prior to selling a car.

Why do you want the wife or antis knowing how much cash you got or what you sold.

I have guns I've had 20 to 30 years and don't know what they are worth now. What a gun is worth only becomes important when you either sell or insure it.

At least your not one of those guys who signs up on calguns just to sell stuff and makes a thread about all his stuff for sale but only looking for "value of my stuff" in the wrong section to get more exposure since they "aren't for sale yet" :facepalm:

oh wait.

Also check the Wanted section of the Marketplace.

Well OP, now that you've gotten all that expert advice, when are you going to list those guns for sale in the classifieds & for how much?

Fng. 5 posts. No I-Trader feedback.

What could go wrong?

Buying, as well as selling, needs to happen in the For Sale section. Imagine that.:rolleyes:
