    Am I giving it away?

    So someone is interested in my Kimber crimson pro carry 2. I quoted an $800 price and this was acceptable to the potential buyer. I tried to keep the economy in mind when pricing. The gun costed me $1,150.00 and the on aftermarket item on it is a set of Trijicon sights. Did I price too low?

    A quick scan on GunBroker for recently-sold examples (of the crimson carry pro) shows $775-1000 being the basic range for pre-owned, with only a couple examples in the neighborhood of $800. So, not unreasonable, but apparently on the low end of the "active" range. That price will likely help sell it sooner.

    Keep in mind when using gunbroker for a price reference not to look at what people list the guns for, but what they actually sell for.

    I would not have listed it at that price. Add $50-100 for the Night Sight, to the price you paid and you have $1200.-1250. in the gun. By listing it at $800. you didn't give yourself any bargaining room. Asking $1000. would have been reasonable, and would have given you flexibility.

    It's worth what you get. If you feel it's worth more, hold out. If you're satified with the $800, then that's fine. It's not like it's a rare gun, just a more expensive one.

    At my price there will be no haggling. It's a take it or leave it price.

    If you feel you got $350 of use on the Kimber then it's a fair price. If you priced it to sell fast you probably did the right thing. As suggested I would have started higher & bargained a bit. You could have maybe gotten an extra $100-$200 for it which still would have been a good deal for the buyer depending on the condition of the gun.

    Definitely looking for a quick sale. My wife's car needs tires in a bad way.

    Well, then, $800 with lots of good photos and a rock-solid description of the condition, wear/use put on it (ie, round count, type of shooting done, what weather, cleaning regimen) will probably result in just that. A quick sale. Hopefully it'll move soon, for you. Good luck.

    I'll only kick myself if Kimber stops making 1911"s. otherwise this one will be replaced.

    I agree with the majority of posters here. You got a fair price for your used pistol. Take the money, use it for what you need to and don't look back.
