Cheapest one ever sold?

Just picked up a very early 0023** p88 for a steal. No box or paperwork, but the gun is pretty much like new condition with both original mags. How'd I do for $375?

Pictures or it didn't happen.

You did very well if it's operable.

Where? And do they have any more....of anything. If they don't know the value of that gun, maybe they have some others that are "right-priced," at least right-priced for the purchaser.

Maybe the seller thought it was a Bersa ?

Why on earth did the seller think it was a $375 gun?

An older guy traded it in and I was just there at the right time. Brand new lgs, and I don't think he knew what he had until after he took my money. Beautiful gun, and it works flawlessly. One of the mags looks like it's never even been in the gun. I'll post pics after work tonight.

If you think you got a good deal, and you did, think of the screwing the older guy took who traded the thing in. And I'll wager that the LGS owner still made a dollar or two in the bargain.

Sorry about the bad lighting and I'm not sure why they're upside down.

I'd say you came out on top with that deal. Perhaps you should consider buying a lottery ticket before you cool down. :-) ~J
