What\'s a fair price for a .22 diamondback?

I have a 4" .22 Diamondback, blued, in 97% condition, with Pachmayr grippers instead of the factory wood grips. Action is tight, smooth and in time. Shoots great--equals my Smith 41 and Hamden HS Citation Military as far as group sizes. No box or papers. If I were to lose my mind and sell it, what's a reasonable price to ask for it? My local shop has one for $799 in similar shape, which can't be right.

Some people are outrageous with their prices and the .22s bring a small premium over the .38s. Now with your 4" .22lr model not having the original stocks (which are getting pricey to replace), no box or goodies, and used would bring $500 around me.

Last year I bought a LNIB 4" .22 blue Diamondback with original box/papers for $625. Good deal - yes, and/however, I think the one in your dealer's shop is way overpriced. Your's, as described, $500 tops.

That sounds more reasonable. It also means it's worth more to me than I can sell it for, so I guess it's a keeper.
