    Default RAI 1911 used price check?

    well like the title says,i was wondering what a nice (not like new but used)RAI 1911 GI is worth,the guy wants $299 and i am real tempted to jump on it,just wondering what you guys thought.

    (actually i was hopeing you guys would justify me buying another gun that i don't really need)

    Sounds good to me. I'm getting a RIA Tactical this weekend for $360, so $300 for a GI is on same line. I say go for it.

    They go for about $420-$440 new, so $299 seems decent if it's in good shape. You won't be disappointed, RIA's are incredible and best bang for your buck by a longshot for a 1911. I own two currently and have never had a problem.
    Good luck, and as I'm sure you know, it's not about "need" it's always about "want"

    freddy g you want us guys to justify why you should not get another gun you don't need. Really thats like letting the fox into the chicken coop , At that price i be jumping in face first if condition is good!

    You trying to own all the same guns as me or something?
    Guns don't kill people, it's mostly the bullets.

    These guns are floating around out there for $400, NIB. That is $101 more than the dude wants for his, and you say (seems like you say) it it used and looks it. If you do not need this pistol, but merely want it, then spend the xtra C-note for a new one. A reliable 1911 always makes a good HDW, so it isn't as if you don't need it. You can look at it as a booster to protecting your home at a great price, but if you are on a budget, be sure you don't want or need something else, more.

    If you already have a few guns, your wife will tend to do what a lot of them do, unless she likes guns as much as you do, and that is this > They don't like fitting something unnecessary into a tight budget. If you feel you need it for more protection and can afford it, then button your pants and get it, but I would rather spend the extra skin on a new one.

    If you don't need the gun and you are not on a tight budget, then begging works pretty good once you wear her down. Got first hand experience, here.
    BCM and Glock...for a bigger pile of 'cold dead hands' brass.
