    Check this gun out!!!!

    One of my best friends had bought a pre-ban Tec 9 many years ago and is now needing money and looking to sell it. This gun is in great condition and has been fired about 500 rounds, 100 of these were by me during one of our range visits. Basically I am interested in purchasing it for $300 bucks. I know this will basically be a gun that sits in the safe but I think it would be a nice addition.

    Is this a fair price? Whats this gun worth? Would you want one in your collection?

    Thanks for the help!

    There is a Tec~9 50 round magazine for sale on GunBroker right now.

    That should be a ton of fun.

    $300. - Yes that is a good price.

    If you don't want it, I'll pay $300 for it. Plus I'll pay shipping and FFL fees. Send me a PM.

    On a pre-ban the end of the barrel is threaded for an attachment. I think is was in 1994 that Clinton passed the ban on "assault" weapons, they still produced the tec 9 but did away with the threaded barrel end. Made it too easy to attach a silencer. You can buy a silencer now for it but you have to jump through some gov. hoops and fees.

    I used to have a Tec-9 pre-ban with fake silencer attachment, and 6-32 round mags. Thing never could eat a mag full of FMJ's without choking five or six times. I traded the whole lot for my Kimber '96 Mauser in 6.5x55. At least that shoots every time I pull the trigger!

    When I went to the range with this gun it ate 200 rds of FMJ flawlessly. RamRod what would you say the value of this gun is?

    Well, I'm not qualified to assess the value, but I'd tell you what I'd give top dollar after my experience with mine (and it may well have just needed new springs or something) $299.95. To me it would be a novelty and not much more. It is fun to shoot until it keeps jamming. I tried several different manufacturer's 9mm harball loads. I seem to remember running some bronze colored bullet loads that seemed to do better than all the rest. Maybe 3D? This was some 15 years ago or so. There's one on GunsAmerica right now for $495.

    Obviously this one does not have any sort of jamming problem.
    Great that he could fire it ahead of time.
    My advice would be snatch it up for $300.
    You could easily turn it over for 550. maybe 6 guaranteed and no sweat.
    Personally I think a value of 950. is a bit excessive but, it's a fantastic investment in that nice condition if you can grab it for anywhere near $300.

    Part of the problem with Tecs is the polymer magwell getting bored out by the steel bodied mags. Accuracy and reliable feeding will degrade with use. I would buy a MAC-11 first. I wouldn't put $300 into a piece of mid-tech history, at the moment. FWIW...
