    .40 RAMI for 399 good deal?

    My local shop has a 40 cal CZ RAMI with one extended mag (no flush fit) for 399. It fits my hand quite well, but... mags are a bit cost prohibitive. Is this a good deal? If it had the flush fit mag I probably would have brought it home already.

    NIB absolutely. If its used, $399 is still a great deal if the gun is in great condition. New the Rami is well over $500.

    If it was NIB, I would be posting pics and bragging about my steal of the century. This pistol has been carried some and has the (light) holster wear to prove it. More wear on the grip area than anything though honestly.
    Unfortunately it is a consignment gun, which means I can't really talk my guy down any. Btw this is an alloy frame gun not a poly.

    I definitely think it's a fair price, and considering how rare those are it might even be a good deal. That said, a RAMI in .40 would not be my preference - that caliber in that small gun is going to be a handful.

    Not the deal of the century but not a bad price. The alloy-framed model is the desirable one (I believe the polymer-framed model was discontinued for cause), and they're in really short supply. CZ models in general are so popular right now that there's not a lot of discounting going on, so I doubt you'd see a new one even for $500 anywhere. I say buy it!

    Yeah, sitting here thinking about, I'd be mad at myself if I saw that and didn't buy it.

    I haven't looked real hard, but the cheapest I've seen are Bud's and ebay, both for around $40 with free shipping.

    something you don't like about it? I have only fondled one, so have not had a chance to shoot one yet. The grip, to me, is one of the best I have handled.

    I would call the price fair, possibly hedging in your (the buyer's) direction.

    The mags are Mec Gar. The Original CZ Forum - Index occasionally has a deal. I got 3, 14rd mags for under $30.

    The alloy frame is preferred. .40 is more stout than 9mm in any pistol. I shoot the caliber just fine from a small PPS.

    Honestly, if you want the gun, suck it up and buy the factory magazines.

    $40 each is about what, say, Star Firestar magazines go for. Folks used to abundant and cheap 1911 or Glock magazines are spoiled. :-)

    In a word, Yes.....those things are hard to find, especially in 9mm.
