PK380 trade in value

Sponsored Links
I just tried to use it for a trade in yesterday and was told that gun won't bring much as a trade in since it's had a lot of rounds through it according, to all the wear on the barrel. 8 rounds . most of the wear was from people racking the slide back since it was a display model I would assume. And when the man almost called me a liar about the use, things got pretty heated. Looks like the value of these particular models, will depreciate fast.

Yea I wouldn't think a $330 gun would hold much value. Thats ok by me because I plan to keep mine. If you are serious about trading/selling it, why not pretty her up and re-blue the barrel?

P5200,
If you are interested in selling it I may be in the market, but not sure how we can conduct such a transaction online, or how you can legally ship it to Florida.
I do have paypal account if that helps on the payment side, and if we can agree on a price.
How much do you think you want for it?

I think she plans to go ahead and keep it If, I promise to touch up the barrel and polish the problem areas. heck, the gun shoots great. I'm still learning to shoot my Sigma 9mm. I bought after seeing how much fun shooting her pistol was. I'll be sure to let you know though if she changes her mind. Thanks!

You can sell a firearm in-State. If you sell State too State you have to go through a FFL holder...i.e. gunshop and they usually charge $25 or so for their trouble. I'm thinking this barrel wear isn't a major item. I think there is a tight fit through the slide ring on most and that a little relief and polishing or, firing will end the wear. M1911

Ide would never trade -in a pistol. you never get what is worth on a trade. FTF sale is the best way to get the most out of your pistol.

As others have suggested, you're better off selling it. The gun goes for ~ $330 new, and I've never seen much value given to a common (non-collector) weapon in a trade - especially if it's not new anymore. 8 Rounds or 80, it's used and therefore already drops in value.

Dealers have to consider what the next person down the line is willing to pay for it, plus make some sort of profit. I wouldn't pay $300 for a used Pk380, if I could get a new one for $30 more. I might pay $225-250. But the less I'm willing to buy it for, the less the dealer can offer you for it, as both amounts determine what he can ultimately make on it.

It's just like a car. Trade it in, and you're sacrificing money for convenience. Sell it on your own, and you're more likely to get closer to what you want for it.

I just looked at two in a pawn shop. One was NIB and the other was used. Both looked the same which means the barrel had some wear on it from people working the action. The used one might have only been sold once but never fired. Didn't see any powder or it didn't smell like it had been shot recently.

The used one is $329 and comes with an extra mag. The new one is $349. Is $349 a fair price? I'm thinking of buying it. From what I can tell its priced about $20 more than it should be but I like the folks at the pawn shop.

If anyone is in the Seattle area please check out D.J.'s Pawn Shop in Bothell. Its one of the biggest gun stores in the area.

I saw a new one at the local gun show a few weeks ago, and the asking price was about $360, so I guess the those are fair prices.
Go for the used one with the extra mag (a $30-40 value) and look for "First Edition" painted on it. Those came with an extra mag and a holster (I got one).
