    Friend or Foe?

    Friend of mine quoted my a price on a new p229r w/nitron finish and Night Sights. Told me that full retail is $1143 and he would sell it to me for $995!

    He has a used HK USP .40s&w for $695, appeared to be in really good shape though I just looked at it through the display case.

    So is he doing me right or should I look for another friend

    I just sold a H&K USP 40, like new condition, 2 13 round magazines, for just over $500. I had advertised it for a while, with no hits at all. You might do some price checking on auctionarms.com or gunbroker.com

    You need another friend. This guy is high balling you all the way.
    Go to HK Forum, Sigforum, AR15.com and you will find great weapons at 2/3rds the price.
    I paid 475 for a refurbed Sig 229, 550 for a new H K P2K.

    That about twice what I recently paid for a Sig 229r although it didn't have night sights and I felt I overpaid although I had reasons for doing so. Your "friend" is jobbing you big time.

    Wow, your "friend" would bone you!

    I just bought a new SIG P229 SAS for $890 including shipping from Bud's.

    Yes, Sigs Website states the MSRP is $1000 instead of the $1143 my friend (so called) quoted me for the same model I stated in my above post. My friend (so called) stated the high quote was because it was railed. Funny, Sig with the railed model is MSRP of $1000 so elsewhere I will look!

    Thanks all...

    When it all comes right down to it, none of us really have friends. They are all part of the big picture, and in the big picture-everyone is looking out for their best interests. Best friends are not to be confused with family, but in the end they usually resort to the same practices (in the big picture).

    Was the P2K purchased from a dealer? If 'YES' would you mind sharing his info?

    Maybe he doesn't know any better. Maybe he is the fool, not the fooler. Open mindedness will free us all. Not saying that he isn't trying to jip you, but that is not the ONLY explanation. Maybe hes a moron?

    With friends like that, sounds like you should pack some Preparation H around with you

    Those who would, deny, require permit, license, certification, or authorization for me to bear arms are as vile, dangerous & evil as those who would molest, abuse, assault, rape or murder my family

    The HST expansion is typical regardless of what it is shot into or through. The color is Photoshopped. Part of a HST flower power T-Shirt I did
