    Colt Government Model 380

    I am familiar with Colt revolver pricing but totally ignorant on semi-auto prices. A friend has a Colt goverment model 380, blued, aprrox 90-95% finish (a few scratches here and there), with box, manual, 1 mag. He wants me to make an offer and I don't want to low ball him or over pay. What would be a fair offer for this pistol. It is the all steel goverment model, not the mustang or pocketlite.

    Ditto, but can push $700 if right.

    These pistols are going for $900 to $1000 at gunshows or pawn shops when you can find them. I stole the stainless one here for $600 from a private sale. I have been offered $800 cash at the last gun show I went to, from a dealer. No box or papers.

    I would offer between 600 and 700:

    I just picked mine up $600. It has a box but no paper work. I like to think a guns worth is what the seller will let it go for and what you will pay. I'm not a huge fan of GS and Auction pricing because the have so much mark up. When pricing a gun I use those prices and work my way backwards to arrive at what I think is a fair offer. After all it my money.Mike

    agree. that pistol is bringing big money now at least 700-900 in AZ Shows. I purchased mine at a show in 93. Its not going anywhere but between my safe , range and my holster. My sons will inherit it someday. Buy one and Choooot it!!

    What crockett007 said. These things are very hard to find, and when you do they are pricey. Every now and then you can find a real bargin, but not too often.

    just my opinion but i'm not a fan of guys that have something for sale but won't price it and expect someone to make an offer.
    I realize he's your friend but my advice is tell him to price it and if you think it's too much then make him a counter offer.

    now if he doesn't have it for sale and you're the one trying to get him to sell it to you I can understand his position.
