I didn't miss anything, I read where he posted it was nib. I agree that a nib mkII slabside should go for around 500. But to say 650-800 is a stretch in my opinion. I don't think there's enough demand to drive up the price way above what a new mkiv costs. Especially with the new takedown feature I don't really see any reason why someone would pay more for the II than they could get a mkiv. I bought a mk3 hunter the first year it came out 2005 i believe for $450 new, now I see them used for the same price at my lgs.

lagless69, I don't think a MKII is worth $800 but a NIB stainless slab side is worth every bit of $450 and the OP has someone offering $500 for that gun and a Kimber for the same price. That's a low ball offer.
You're correct that property is only worth what someone else is willing to pay but the market does provide a starting point when setting prices.

$500 is getting high for a MKII, even a NIB one but it isn't extreme. If I was in the market for a MKII; I would give $450 for a NIB stainless slab side model without blinking. That doesn't mean anyone else would go that high but I think that price is at least in the ball park.

I agree with you 100%.....but his wording is kind open to interpretation, I took it like the guy offered him 500 for the ruger and the kimber as in 500 a piece. I could be wrong and he could have meant 500 for both.
