    Isn't that pretty much suggested retail for a new one?

    I can get one brand new for $509.99 at my LGS. I would check around and see if you can find a better deal.

    Thanks! I'll keep looking. It seems folks on my local Facebook garage sell sites are selling guns above retail here.

    not at all..... A new one runs between 500-520...no more, and everything included should come with the gun antway because that is what ships new. IMO, offer 475 plus tax (if applicable) and if they say no, walk away and find a reasonable deal. Used is used regardless of what they paid for it or want for it.

    That is very high. I can tell you first hand exp that I just purchased my MP40 with two mags, SW case and all 3 back straps brand new for 609. and thats here in Cali, with just the 10+1 rd mags, which is great cause in the 30 minutes it took me to purchase the gun and complete paperwork, 2 guys called about it and 3 guys came in asking about it. MSRP though is $569 for just the gun and the entire range kit is $609 per their website. I'd keep shopping around personally.

    I would definitely spend the extra $34 and get a new one.

    Last spring, I bought a like new (never fired) M&P .40 Range and Carry Kit for $475, privately.

    So no... that's not a very good deal. Prices will drop as the year goes on though.

    paid $485 NIB from Buds a couple months ago. Max I would pay for your deal would be $425-$450, and that is towards the top end.

    FYI----pay attention to the internet gun sites and their prices. THEY ARE COMING BACK DOWN every week.

    I bought a brand new M&P9c for $499 last week. They had full-sized 9s and .40s for the same price.
