P220 Dark Elite Carry... ?

So, I have a line on a 2010ish P220 Dark Elite Carry...
Night Sites are burnt out, finish appears decent for its age, and has approximately 1300rds fired.

Saw a couple on GB starting at $699...
Should I jump on the local option at $750?

Seller doesn't know the production year, and is the second owner.
I am definitely interested, but just not sure if I want to spend that much on a used pistol with an unknown history.

What are your thoughts?

Really wish Sig would have kept these in production, as I do not really dig the current Stainless option.

That seems a little steep for a gun with significant use and sights you'd need to replace. But that's just me.

Night sights last 12 years. If they are burnt out then the gun is probably older than you think. I'd try and talk him down to $650-$700, especially since sights will need to be replaced.

Kind of what I was thinking, but I passed on one a couple years ago and have regretted it...they are just sweet pistols.

Guess I am not 100% on this one, or I probably wouldn't have asked for opinions!

Sights are probably just dim, if they are burned out then they are either defective or older than 12 years old, but don't think the Dark Elite has been made that long. Could replace with Dawson Precision sights. I sold the aluminum grips on mine and replaced with piranhas. It's a pretty sweet pistol, but now discontinued so I wouldn't go that high.

I got my 220 Carry with perfect night sights and 200 rounds through it for $650.00 a couple of years ago, maybe 3 years ago.

It seems very steep to me.
