The current anti-gun administration has a lot to do with prices because of demand from the public for the right to bear arms. I bought my last gun almost two years ago durring the middle of Bush's last term. It was a used officer's size Colt 1911 in like new condition but they just couldn't sell it at my local gunshop because people were only interested in more modern plastic guns. They were only asking $399 for it and it sat in the display case for at least a month or more. Finaly I couldn't take it and snatched it up, turned out to be just what I needed, a great lil' gun.
Recently I was looking around at current gun prices and this gun that they couldn't give away two years ago is now averaging over $600 for heavily used examples.

Yesterday I looked at a used S&W 25-5 (.45 Colt), 4" blue, some holster wear and end shake cylinder....$625!!!!!
That's just crazy talk!

The shop also had a pretty, 4" M-28 for $425. More common model, but they were going for $200-250 three years ago. Maybe we all needed to forget the 401K's and get .357K's. We would be better off now.

I don't see what the problem is, I just purchased a Sig P229 40 S&W for $292.17. It works perfect and looks like new.

I have never lost money on a firearm of any type. There is a buyer for every gun no matter what brand or condition it may be in. I found a Russian 44 in a sand pit and it was totally rusted up. I sold it for 75.00... There is no way that revolver was going to shoot again, but my guess is it was put in a collection of some sort.

I expect the flood of lesser quality pistols make those that are well made worth at times even more than the newer versions. Even more in the new gun control policy the pistols with generous mag cap have gone up in value as there is a fear they might be hard to get in the near future.
