This is a discussion on What's a used Ruger P89 worth? within the Ruger Pistols forums, part of the Pistol & Revolver Forum category; I found a used one and want to make am offer to the person. What is a good price to pick a P89 up for?
I have a chance to buy a P89 for $250.00 out the door. it is in OK condition, has aftermarket hougue grips, an ok holster, but comes with no mags.
Not sure if I should buy..
Not bad, but considering how much factory mags are going for right now, I would probably use Mec-Gar. They cost less and function just as well as the factory magazines. That is, if you can find a place that has them in stock.
I think those grips are close to twenty dollars, so you still might come out with a pretty good deal even after you buy a magazine or two, IMHO.
I paid $300 at a local pawn shop for a P89DC in mid-January of this year. It was in good condition and came with Hogue grips and one 15-round factory mag. Maybe a little bit high - but maybe not, considering the hysteria that was starting around that time. It shoots great and I really like the pistol. I had always been a revolver guy and this was my first semi-auto.
