    Hello all, my cousin has a mark III standard that is long forgotten about in his safe that he does not use. It's got about 500 rounds through it and was thinking of asking if he would sell it to me for my daughter to plink with.

    What is a respectable offer considering dros and transfer total will be $70 added to cost of pistol.

    Thanks in advance.

    $200 will be fair. He won't do better sellling to a dealer for cash. Auctioning off or selling at a gun show would be extra hustle, extra fees, or both.

    Used in really good shape as high as 250 but it would have to be in really good shape. That's a person to person sale. A shop wont give but maybe 175-200. then sell for 250-275.
