Seeking your advice

G'day,

I have the opportunity to purchase a Sig 226 spec'd as follows:

-226 Enhanced Elite
-chambered 9mm
-Stainless Slide
-Rosewood grips
-3 mags
-custom display box
-Engraved/gold inlay with a company (internationally known and revered)logo and special event depicted on slide

This would be 1 of 200, never to be reproduced, and not for public sale.(purchaser is free to do with it what he will with it once in possession)

My question is, what would the value of this pistol be?
Not considering "personal" or "what it is worth to me," more so from an insurance standpoint or private sale value.

I am not a gun guy, but I do see the value of historic items, I would only own this so I could say "I have one." That said, it also has to be worth what I am going to pay.

I understand that there are many variables at play and it is impossible to put an exact amount down, I am thinking more like a high/low price.

Cheers

XJSKINS

There's so many variable that would go into determine the value. The company, the event, the detail in the work. I think it would be very very hard to determine the value.

The event it commemorates will definitely figure into the value. Usually the value goes up long after the production is stopped.
I think the 226 elite ss/rosewood sells for about $1200 for standard production model. If you make a "limited" edition with gold inlay???.....I can see it going for about $2K before production. And thats just speculation on my part-

Thanks for the replies thus far. There are many factors.... if a 2k figure is near accurate, then I could see this as falling under the "investment" category rather than the "toy" one.

Your thoughts are appreciated.

Cheers

I would def say yes for investment. If your looking for a toy, just buy the bare bones 226 and shoot the snot out of it. This pistol seems as if it would mean something to you. Def worth keeping nice.

XJSKINS- I hope that you found the dialog here helpful though I was just along for the learning experience as well. I also hope, for rather selfish reasons, that you find a way to make the "investment"; would really like to see some pics of this beauty posted here.
I also predict that within say 3 months you will be soliciting input on which caliber and model of P226 "worker" you should buy so's you could go out and "shoot the snot out of it" as smith3466 recommends!
Good luck mate.
