    I bought a used Mark II ANIB just like this..with a red dot sight instead of the aimpoint...plus mine came with a set of Ruger wood target grips with thumb rest in addition to the factory plastic grips. Paid $400. I believe it was a good deal. Regards, Ed

    I have never seen one go for 2 bills. In fact ill take it right now for that. $400.00 is closer to what it should bring used. John

    I recently saw one sell for $150.00 without the aimpoint. I had opportunity to buy it and was gonna buy it the next day and then it was gone. Most used one I know of sold for $250.00. Jackie B.

    Guess I got screwed....again. Deals here on TS.com clearly seem to run 50% less than anywhere else. Got to remember this next time making an offer on stuff on the For Sale section. Regards, Ed

    I'd agree. not more than $200 for the older Mark II with the obsolete dot.

    I`m a shotgun guy... but come on guys, a stainless mark ll target for $200... He`s wanting to know the value, not what someone would pay for it.

    A buyer would get a fair deal at $300(w/optic) and have at least $300 of fun shooting this nice pistol. Guns are selling like hotcakes right now - especially FTF deals. This is a popular model with a very good history of performance.

    You might want to flip the optic around though...

    The last MKII SS target model I bought, I paid $250 at a gun show.

    That one being a short bull barrel(4 or 6 inch) I would pay, tops $275.

    But thats just me, I wouldn't own a MKIII.

    I only buy based on value. That way I don't get taken very often.

    I paid $350 for a Mk2 and wouldnt sell it for 400. The Mk2 is a much nicer gun than the Mk3, IMO.

    Wholesale on a new Mark III S/S is $375.

    Some of you are very confused.

    Value is not what "you" are willing to pay.

    Value is what reasonable knowledgeable buyer is willing to pay.

    Do those of you who think $200 is the value on this pistol have one you will sell for that price?

    Gary,

    No offense intended. I will take you word on what the BlueBook says, but sometimes the BlueBook trails value.

    I was just trying to make the point that value, like beauty is in the eye of the beholder. This pistol would not last 5 minutes at a gun show priced at $300. Does that mean I would buy it for that? No, but I would buy it in an instant for $200, whether I needed or not.

    True, the Blue Book is about the only resource around for grading and pricing but I would not base any purchase/selling decisions on it...frequently is off by several hundred dollars from the real world. For example, yesterday I was looking at an old Remington Model 12 pump .22 rifle with a 24" octoganal barrel in very nice shape for $475 asking price. Got all excited when the revered Blue Book indicated it should be priced ~$800 to $1,000. Then I checked several on Gunbroker...most priced between $250 - $500 tops. Don't believe everything you see in Blue Book...just compare Smith & Wesson prices between the Blue Book vs. reality. No comparisons. Best Regards, Ed
