P22 Pricing ?

I'm planning on buying a .22 for the sole purpose of cheap shooting/plinking, and it would see some time teaching the GF how to handle a handgun. I've always liked the P22 and am starting to shop around.

From a few local shops so far:
All black one, don't remember the date code, had some wear, seemed really overpriced for its condition at $320
OD green, AK date code, better shape than the one above for $300
New P22Q all black, BC code, $370 (small local business)
Same new P22Q at Gander Mountain for $350

The few questions I have:
What is a good price on a used P22 in good shape? Nothing special, 3.4 barrel, not threaded, etc.
Am I off base to think $300 is a little high considering there are new P22Q's on GunsAmerica and Gunbroker for $300-$320 range? Obviously plus shipping, transfer, etc. adds up and I realize that.
If the difference between a used P22 and new P22Q is $100 or even less ($50 from my current local options), is it worth it to even bother going used for not that much savings?

Opinions? Thanks in advance!

I just bought my all black P22Q a little over a week ago, new. I paid $330 at a local shop and that was the cheapest I could find around me. They also had the nickel slide for a little over $350 and the almost blinding bright yellow one for $375. I haven't seen any used for quite some time. As for gunbroker, you also have to take into consideration shipping and FFL fee. Have you tried armslist.com or gunlisting.com for anyone local?

From what I've read, the 2007-08 and up P22 is damn near identical (internally) to the new P22Q. I shot 160 rounds this past weekend from my pistol that was manufactured in November 2012 and it was far from problem free. So, just because you buy new doesn't mean it'll function flawlessly. Personally I'd recommend a used one (if you can find a good deal) that will have already been broken in and possibly some mods/fixes already done.

If you do want to buy a used one, I would make sure that you are able to test fire a few mags through it. The P22 is picky about what ammo you use. In order to get an accurate idea of how well the pistol works, you will need to test fire it with CCI mini mags, or Remington Gold bullets. If you use any other ammo and have problems, you will not know if it is the gun or the ammo that has the problem. Also make sure you get a pistol with the newer mags.

Check this out for some info, this is from the P22 FAQ section of this site.

A short barrel P22 in black was about $329 not long ago. One mag. I would think $300 is too much unless it was absolutely like new. Will you have to pay tax on the used one? You will on the new one. And all P22s come with a threaded barrel. Of course right now is the worst time to be buying a firearm with regard to good deals. M1911

I don't know if it was an anomaly or if I just beat the recent increased demand, but I picked up a gently used P22Q for $225 during the summer. A few months ago, I was trying to get a P22 on Gunbroker.com. I typically got outbid at around $250 to $275.

As long as I use CCI or Remington Golden Bullets, she's been pretty dependable.

My new one today was $342.00. That's the new inflated prices since the shiza has hit the fan.

Got mine at a local dealer right after a gun show, they has a booth setup and had one or two left. Walked out with a new p22q, never fired, for right around $200.

Thanks for the responses. I started looking through the P22 Vital Info thread yesterday but didn't get too thorough while I was at work.

I realize I picked the absolute worst possible time to look for a deal, but I'm in no real hurry. Sounds like what I've found so far is a little overpriced, so I'll keep my eyes open for a deal.

Dunns in St. Louis has them on sale for 279 nib and regularly sells them for 319 for the standard model they must have bought a bunch cause they were flying out the door. Too bad I bought mine a
few days before at Dennis sports for 339 this is their regular price, I should have looked around a little more before I bought mine as usual
