    I was browsing the used pistols at the local Gander Mountain today and I happened across this customised C9. Yes it's been dipped and yes it has an extra mag but it sure seems like they are proud of a used pistol. The price aside I think it looks pretty cool.

    Offer them $150 if you like it.
    That's a $150 gun all day long.
    They valued it at less then $100 when they took it in trade.

    What does hydro dipping cost?

    The .380's at GM seem competitively priced but the C9's seems a bit on the high side IMO. The owner of that C9 went in a direction I would not have gone but if everyone liked the same thing it would be a pretty boring world.

    could be but by the time you add in Cheaper Than Dirts $10 shipping and your local FFL fee (the lowest I could find was $20 in my area with $35 the average) you end up back in the gander mountain price range.

    I do like the looks of it. And by the time you buy a new one, then get it dipped, you'll probably be in for more than $235.

    But, it is a used gun. So I agree it's still high.

    Honestly, here, Gouger Mountain isn't TOO bad.

    They are actually a good bit cheaper than one of my LGS's

    Doesn't matter what hydro dipping costs.
    Dipping a $150 gun doesn't instantly make it worth $250.
    You've spend it on it but it's not the value.
    Same for buying used cars from a private individual lol
    Yes but I've spend xxx amount on it. Mmmm it's still a $1000 car.

    The last firearm I checked at GM, was a Taurus 66 357, $475.99. Add IL
    .09 sales tax = $519. Got one on Buds for $404, free shipping, +$25
    FFL and no IL sales tax.

    I was in a local pawn shop I'd never been in before a few months ago and they had used Hi Points just as they came from the factory priced at more than new price. If I recall correctly they had a JHP priced at about $225., pretty sure I can still buy the JHP new for around $160 and the C9 for around $140. If I were going to spend $240. on a handgun it would be something a little more carry friendly than the C9. One of the local stores had new SCCY CPX2's on sale a few weeks ago for $199.

    You're 99% correct here, it might help a smidge if the prospective buyer
    WANTS the "extras" you have added, and you can prove they have been
    done. Easier to prove on a gun than a car, however :rofl: This one has
    obviously been hydro-dipped, but who really wants "diamond plate" graphics?
    :p :p :p
