Default Took my 586 no dash to Cabelas

I took my 586 to Cabelas just to find out what it is worth. They said it had a retail value of $795.00. That is not what they offered me. But I didn't have any intention of selling it anyway. I just wanted to find out what it was really worth. I paid $500 for it about 5 years ago. I told them I was interested in a 4 inch 686. I wanted them to make me a real offer. They only offered me $525.00 for it. Wow...that's a mark up!

That means they would sell it for $600+. Might be a little too steep for my blood if I were in the market. Then again, if I fell in love with it, who knows?

That is a hell of a markup. I only make about $50-$100 off each gun I sell. Some of them I only make $25 off of.

But Cabela's has more of an "overhead" to maintain.

If I actually wanted to sell it there is a dealer that sells guns for a $10 commision. It is Wilcox Auto. That is the place that used to be A-Pawn. But I think I will hang on to it. Maybe my son will get $1500 for it in 20 years.

I find it rather disgusting. I also brought in my Kahr CM9. They offered me $265 for it. I bought it from them used for $399 less than a year ago. Still looks brand new in the box it came in. Their excuse was that there are too many of them out there for sale.

An original 586 no dash that is actually for sale is hard to come by. I am not talking about a modern S&W that you can go buy at your local dealer. Mine has the firing pin on the hammer. It is the original 586 Combat Magnum.

A brand new S&W 586 at full MSRP is $809.

$525 isn't really that horrible of an offer (it's not great either), however, them thinking $795 for a used one as an asking price is something else.
I would stop going there for appraisals.

Liberals are constantly telling us about the poor and oppressed in this country. With that in mind, why do they feel the need to keep importing poor people from other countries?

We are not talking about the same gun. The new model is not the same as the old model. I have held and dry fired the new model. There is no comparison. My gun has a trigger that is incredible. I do not like the new one.
