    A freind of mine has inquired about possibly selling his 1985 browning Hi Power 9mm, on the side of the gun it says " Made In Belgum, FNH ( Fabrique Nationale Herstal, the serial number, according to browning's history site dates it in 1985. The gun is blued with wood panel type grips. He has the box and it appears to be well taken care of and not shot much. I'm just trying to get a rough idea of what a good, fair market price would be for this type of hi power, i understand guns america, gun broker etc etc is a good source to but this site contains a lot knowledge. Thanks for your ideas.

    TB.

    I sold one just like that from the same era about two years ago for 600.00. The gun was 95%.

    400-500 depending on market and condition

    You can ask whatever you want but if you ask thinking you will get more than most people wont even make an offer.

    500 used is what you see them at gun shows for and you know they dont sell for that full price usually

    PS there was also a little zippered case that went with the guns of that era.
