how much do the unfired ones usually go for?

Whatever someone is willing to pay. When was that one manufactured? MSRP was $383.95 in 1990 and up to $462 in 1996.

Nice pick up! Used ones are going for around $700 and up - probably a little more in this State. Unfired? Whatever the traffic will bear.

Enjoy.

Cool little shooter! Highly regarded by many in the pocket-carry community.

thanks guys. I picked it up for 350 with box, manual and extra magazine. the person who i bought it from said he only fired it once for dros purposes when he purchased it in 1993. i don't know how true that is though.

Cool little gun.
Why would he have to fire it for DROS? I know the waiting period was 15 days back then, but I don't recall ever having to fire the gun.

I recall when they first came out (1984 or 1985) and MSRP was $269 for blue. It was featured on the cover of "Guns and Ammo".

Does that mean the blue cost the most?

I have fired it a few times and the only thing that i dont like about it is, the safety. it sits too close to the grip so my thumb engages it when firing.

Damn good deal for 350 i'd say its worth about 600 for a blue version, SS worth about 700

Congrats! Those are THE best .380 pistols in my opinion. I had a stainless Government .380 and with it not being a blowback design it was the softest shooting .380 I've had the pleasure of shooting.

I believe the blue came out first and I was quoting the price from recollection.

The SS models usually cost more than the blue, but I cannot recall when the
SS models came out and what the MSRP was.

OP: $350? Go have a nice dinner at a fancy restaurant tonight to celebrate.

You got about a 55% discount on that bad boy. Box and all too. Did you ask him if by chance he has a Colt Mustang complete with box and papers he's willing to sell for $400?

Haha. I dont think he has another colt mustang. He is selling me a Firestar .45 acp for $450. i thought that was too much.
