    I might be selling my beretta M9. Some stuff came up and need money. Don't want to do it but might not have a choice.
    -BerettaM9 w/original box and tags and custom trijicon night sights installed, and the original rear sight in a bag. The sights were installed by Tooltech gunsight. they drilled in the front trijicon since there's no dovetail.
    -Set of stock grips, aluminum grips, and hogue grips.
    - two 15 Rnd mags
    - solid steel guide rod
    - extended mag release
    - original guide rod and spring and mag release
    -.22lr conversion kit w/one mag.

    All for $1000.00

    Do u guys think that's too much to ask?
    Probably about 700 rounds through the M9 and about 500 through the conversion kit.

    I doubt you'll get that much. First you have to find someone who wants all that stuff, you may have to split it up. Hope you can hang on instead.

    I'm sure if you posted it in the for sale section people would let you know if your asking to much.

    It doesn't hurt to list it for that price and see if you get lucky. Honestly you'll probably be lucky to get $800.
    Parting out all the extra goodies may be a good idea.

    This^^
    I was going to say between $800 & $900 might be realistic. Price also drives how fast you want to move it. The higher the price, the longer you are likely to continue to have it sitting around.

    I hear ya guys. Thanks for your input. For 1k I'm still losing about 400.00 with tax for all the stuff I bought for it. So that makes it very hard to go lower. I'll figure out something. It's either that or my sig.

    to me i thought it seemed almost reasonable. suppose being in ny im used to seeing higher prices anyway. a new m9 here goes for about 650 for just the pistol.. perhaps try to sell it seperately to make the money you need... same reason LGS/gun show tables like selling ammo by the box, not the case. they make more money.

    Yeah. Same here. The m9 goes anywhere from 590-700 new in box @ LGS's around here.

    Around here, I'd ask $650 for everything but the conversion kit (and I'd probably take $600). And then sell rimfire setup seperately. I wouldn't expect to get $1000 for my Sig P226 with 22lr conversion/5 mags/multiple grips, etc...and they go for a few hundred more.

    YMMV and your local market may be different. Best of luck with the sale.

    In 6 months there's a very good chance the supply/demand situation will move significantly in your favor if you can wait.

    OP, Sweeper has a very good point. Everything's going up and will continue to as the election season heats up. Last presidential election handguns and "evil" rifles were flying off the shelves at record prices.

    I'm playing around with the m9 right now and I don't think I would like myself too much if I sold this piece. I put lot o money into it. I'd rather sell my Xbox, ps3, computer, HD camcorder, wife's elliptical(lol). I like the sig more for reputation n decocker function. But the M9 is a ****in tack driver. Even though the barrel burns u after dumpin with it. Lmao.
