P228 What's a good price?

I think i'm going to sell my P228, what do they go for?

Mine is in great shape very little wear and is a West German one with a date code of KB. Original box, mags ,manual, cleaning kit and I have a new set of Houge grips and stainlees hex screws. Oh and a new MecGar stainless 15 rd mag.

Thanks!

varies, without pics it's hard to say.

what's great shape to you may not be the same to a buyer.

you have 2 posts saying the same thing, before someone replies to the other one you might want to delete it.

You might look at gunbroker or a similar site and get a feel for what they are going for.

Go back to that post. Should be a small edit box offered there. Select that and Delete will be one of your options.
Welcome.
I paid $550 for a little rougher one and $600 for a better one 5 years ago.
To get one in great shape, $700 and maybe even $800.

You are probably not the original owner. Because that case is not the original case to the KB gun. Original KB guns come in the gray cardboard box with the original label with serial number on the outside.

Manual not original either.

Lots of folks care about originality, so the Hogue rubber grips and the Mec-Gar nickel (not stainless) mag, and the stainless hex screws have little meaning. No test target is another strike.

Value? Let the buyers decide.

I would say $550-850 is the market.

Price depends on condition and having all things that were included in box when new. Owners manual, signed test target, mags, triple serial numbers, original parts, etc.

What 12131 said.

If I were you, I'd list in on GB and set the minimum bid at the lowest price you would sell it for, and then let auction dynamics determine its value.

"Worth" is a subjective concept.
