Value of like new TRS ?




I am considering selling my TRS. It is like new, 150 rounds. January 2012 production. To many hobbies and not enough money or time !

Anyhow, anybody have an idea on what the low end of new prices are, so I can guage a price on this ?

Please let's not get myself or anybody in a situation with the "Boss" here, I am not selling it on here or discussing selling it on here, just looking for price info.

Thanks,

Wayne

1600 shipped should be a good start point

Low end on new prices that I could find were around 1800.00 and up. Hard to find in stock though. I would think a good price on yours would be 1600.00.

I hope to see you get 1600.00 out of, it but in reality it's a used gun( I know you know this). I paid barely over 1700 for my new CC shipped, I think the CC's retail is like 10 buck less then the TRP, that said on higher end guns ie custom 1911's I feel you can take a beating on the sale of them.

Best of luck moving your TRP.

When I called Les Baer a couple weeks ago the gal there told me currently, for the 2.5" guarantee TRS was $1980 and the 1.5" guarantee was about a $500 upcharge for the labor of the fitting. Also she said the wait time was incredibly long as they were way behind on production of the TRS in particular, again these are new prices. I traded three Glocks I had $1700 into with extras for my unfired, late 05' TRS and felt GREAT about it! Mine also is a Hillsdale, IL rollmark which I am getting from reads these were "better fit" than newer productions, whatever, a TRS is a TRS unless you're going to go 1.5". Is yours the 1.5" guarantee model? This may make a substantial difference in what you ask for it and how fast it sells....

A face to face sale of your TRS would likely bring you around $1,500. On Gun Broker or selling to your local gun shop you could see offers of around $1,200. At least that is what I see around here.

Agreed.

$1600 for a used TRS is okay but not a that great a price. $1400-$1500 will get it sold.

I got my Hillsdale TRS lightly used for $1400.
I paid a little more for my early TRS since it was chromed after delivery by Tripp.

In South Florida you could, fairly easily get $1600 for a like-new TRS from a private sale.

Not sure why. For another $150 or so you can get a brand new one.

$1600.00 seems like a reasonable price to me, as well.
