    Do you know the production year? Earlier production runs have had problems with rusting.

    Around here new ones are going for 419 blued or 429 stainless brand new. With the gear kit which is the two mags, case, holster, mag holder and speedloader.

    I would probably pass and find a good deal on a new one, but i am usually leery of buying used firearms.

    I agree with buckeye. Why buy used when you can buy new for around the same price?

    I'll kick the dead horse once more... buy new or find a better deal.
    $400.00 isnt a total rip off, buts its no deal.

    Glad I asked...I thought they were going for around $500 without all the goodies. Thanks, I am going to pass on the offer.

    I just don't trust used weapons...buy new!
    I guess that's the general opinion here...

    Have fun looking...

    I bought one used and feel I was riped off.
    Was given 2 used ones and they are good.
