Alloy Hi Power worth

Hello, was just on here learning about a hi power I just got. My father picked it up for me and he paid a price of 420. We're both wondering why it's so cheap. The OOW alloys were 585 before they sold out it seems. See alloys online for 600-700 dollars. Trying to price mine out my dad is always curious how much of a deal he gets. Does the OOW import marking on the magwell hurt value much? This is the only import marking. Seems like it's worth 585 right? Here are some pics, thanks. Also, I see people blur the serial number and Im not sure why but I'm too lazy this time for that.

That is a nice example of the LEO/Milsurp Alloy Hi Power. It seems to have been refinished before it landed in your hands. These GVx pistols often have significant wear on the front of the frame from holstering the gun. You can see that the line is not straight at the front of the dust cover which is the normal tell.

Don't worry about the import mark. All these FN rollmarked guns have an import mark. Doesn't effect the value of the gun from my experience.

I have seen these pistols go for between 600 and 700 in the last 6 months on gunbroker WITHOUT the refinish. Assure your Dad he got a good deal.

Enjoy the gun.

It's worth exactly what someone will pay for it.
I think they should all be $300.
$585 is near the top end of the current price range.
I would never pay $700.

At $420 you can fix it up and it still won't cost too much.

That lot was from Ohio ordnance Works chardon ohio. I believe these were made after 1968 ,so all were import marked. Yes worth near $600
