Ballpark price for a good condition 'c'?

With some character wear. Understanding that you can't see it, and it is only worth what I am willing to pay. What range would you consider coughing up?

Hell of lot of variables in there, MM.

If it shoots, and you like it, even if it's been around the block, expect to pay $800 for starters. If it looks good, and it comes in a box with goodies, you'll need to pay more.

Thanks Searcher, I understand that my question is unfair. But that does give me a starting point, and I appreciate it.

Searcher's guesstimate seems about right to me. I got a nice P88c for around $650 about a year ago, although mine has some light use-related 'character' and it came with no box or extras other than a second magazine. I have also seen guns no nicer than mine go for right around $1k. So, having a feel for the market in advance and being patient is the right approach. FWIIW, I think that the compact is a fine pistol, and it is one of my most favorite Walthers. Strangely enough, like my P5, I am so happy with it that I am not interested in getting another.

$750 on the low end in 92-95% without box, manual, test target, BUT with supplied extra magazine.

Without that magazine, $650. Tops for me. You won't see another nickle.

If you have everything Walther included for the same condition? $900, maybe.

Time to start negotiating.
