NIB P227... a good price?

I've found a NIB P227R Nitron with the 2 factory 10 round mags and the box. The seller on GB wants $975 which I feel is a high price. It's not an auction, but a Buy It Now. GB item number 870851460.

Looking for some opinions. I've been looking for one of these, but have no idea as to what a fair price would be. Thanks

A decent price would be around $800…even given the times.

So it seems that my thoughts were correct. The price is way high. I've done a lot on GB and have never offered a lower price on a Buy It Now item. I have been in touch with the seller asking questions and I think I will offer a lower price and see what he does. It has been listed for a while. If he says no, I'm done.

What would be a fair price to offer? I'm thinking $750 or less?

Sounds about right! I would only pay more for a more expensive model

Yeah, seller knows his price is too high, but it also depends on how bad you want it. Some people get offended if you lowball them versus what they would actually accept. Its not an SAS or other special model. Youll need to install the SRT...and shave off that rail...

So Id agree that $750 sounds like a place to start...Given his initial price Id be surprised if he let it go for less than $850-875which might be his acceptable range anyway.

I would like to look at that. Was it online or a LGS?

I think gun prices have three basic categories.

(a) It's priced higher than it should be, I won't buy it.
(b) The price is good, I should buy it.
(c) It's priced a bit high, but that model isn't plentiful, and I want it.

I've followed all three at one point or another.

Price is high but increasingly irrelevant given the lack of supply. At some point in an atypical market, market value moves to an pragmatic amount.

Months ago, Ellis County Firearms had a new 227 Tacops listed with 4 10-rd mags for a now-reasonable price. I kept thinking the price would decline but it instead sold.

With hindsight, I should have then relinquished my principled stance and bought the dang thing.

It depends on availability. If there's a short supply in the market then one have to pay for the asking price.

That is well put!

In this case it is (c) I want one and would like to buy new old stock (maybe not this one) and I know the model isn't plentiful. Well used ones I've seen that have significant wear marks have gone for over $700.
