Holster, mags, and sights are no longer new.
I do not have a Kimber in my inventory and don't see one to be there (my opinion only).

Look at used, also. My wife found an Ed Brown Kobra carry in the newspaper with holster, mag carrier, shoulder holster rig, original gun rug, and ammo all for $1800.

They look like factory sights to me, but it's too far away to tell for sure. Put $5000 worth of aftermarket tires and wheels on your vehicle and try to sell it for $5000 more than it's worth and see how that works out...

ok, so let me ask this differently. What would you pay for this Kimber pro carry II (about 4 months old)? He is a friend of 30yrs and trust him. The reason he's selling it is cuz he likes hes FN45 more.

So what is a good offer?

That was including the CTC laser grips, which at the time were around $300, and night sights which were $150.
That puts the gun around $800. Look on gunbroker...all day in your configuration for $800 range.

Your choice tho, brother.

I mean, he's not "screwin' ya'", just saying you can get a new one for close. If you want it, yeah....he's in the ballpark. Just comes down to what you wanna do. Don't piss off a friend over a $100 bill tho....

I was the one thinking $800 cuz I didn't want to screw him. He would probably sell it to me for $600 if I asked. Hell he was going to give it to his brother (also a friend). He owns alot of guns, probably 30k worth but I don't want to steal it from him cuz he is a friend. Anyways, thanks for all the input

I like the Dan Wesson over the Baer. Just personal preference. I do own a Valor Bob in the duty finish, I have shot a Baer, just like the feel of the Valor better.

Dan Wesson CCO. It's my primary carry gun. The Valor is worth a look too. They're built well enough that unless you need specific features, stepping up to Baer or Brown probably isn't necessary.
