MSRP is $638. and 100% is $460.

I find that Gun Broker is a great source for current gun values as it reflects what the market for firearms is currently bearing. If the market is inflated with a certain firearm you will not pay Blue Book prices, supply and demand.

Furthermore, a gun values really comes down to whether you are buying it or selling it. How much do you want the firearm opposed to how much the seller needs the money.

Joe hit the nail on the head. Any product is worth what someone is willing to pay for it - no more and no less. If you look at Gunbroker, make sure to look at completed auctions, with a sale, to see what something actually went for.

BTW, after the fact is the wrong time to ask yourself whether you paid to much...

Yeah you did alright. I've paid too much before, but there's not much you can do about it. I always check gun broker or the Bible before buying now.
