You never pay MSRP. To look at it this way,if ffls are selling it for around $450,you would be lucky to get $200 for it from them. Therefore a used one on a private sale should be in the $300-$350 area max. If you want to pay extra for the goodies (some of which should be included) that's your choice. That said,if you want it,just buy the damn thing.

I bought a New Sr9C Stainless for $380 here in ATL. I then sold it with a couple hundred rounds through it for $320. I guess it depends on location, but I don't think they are worth much more than $400 brand new from a store. For me it would depend on how many rounds were included in the deal and if I really liked/needed the holsters.

So if the gun is not worth the msrp why are so many stores charging msrp?

I have not seen this gun nor any SR advertised for sale at $529.00 or higher.

Please link some examples.

Personally I think you are approaching troll level.

Right MSRP (manufacturer suggested retail price). Ruger is the manufacturer.

I have given you a few of many websites & stores that sell them for less.

Buy the gun or don't.

No sweat.

You're going to get a mixed response because you are right on the edge at that price. Not bad but not good. If I wanted that gun and wanted those specific holsters and the gun still looked brand new then I would probably buy it realizing I might have only saved $50 or so but still a savings and I don't have to hint any further for that package. However, if the holsters aren't ones you would have specifically wanted or the gun doesn't look pretty pristine then you can likely match this deal on a brand new gun or beat the deal on a different new gun. Again though the difference up or down might only be $50. So in this case I think it really just comes down to whether this particular package is what you want and worth the money to you. If so buy it and know you did okay... Not a bargain find though... But not a ripoff either.

In my area (and I thought basically everywhere) a used firearm doesn't lose much value from being sold used. Not a whole lot of depreciation (there's the word I was looking for! ). I also priced SR40s recently and a new one is $389 +tax, so $400 for that deal would be fantastic. Depending on the holster (basically if it isn't an old baseball glove cut up and glued back together), the deal you are looking at only gets sweeter.

I would love to see pics, too!
