What the used price is depends on the firearm, and where it is for sale. I know that new Colt Single Action Armys retail for around $1300-$1500, and at the shop I work at we had a used one for sale that was around $850, and another gunshop had a similar Colt for sale that wasn't in as good of a condition and it was for sale for around $1000. Another example I can think of are used Sig P299's (older models) compared to used XDs. New Sig P229's retail for around $900-$1000, but used older models sell for around $550-$650, and as for XDs they retail for around $600, but used ones sell for $450-$550.

I'm looking at an XD 9mm. On Buds Gun Depo, online, its going for around $430 NIB. Lets say I found the same model at a local gun shop but its used. Would the majority of you, that are XD fans, not pay more than $350?

I keep a few references- Blue Book, Gun Trader's Guide- but the BEST is to go to gunbroker and auction arms, abd search CLOSED auctions for those guns, and look NOT at the asking price, but what they really sold for. Remember, condition drives value.
