Might be a buyers market for high end

Anyone seeing good deals on finer handguns? I recently saw a deal on a like new WC protector in 45. $1900. That about 50% off; kind of crazy. Anyone planning to buy or buying something unplanned because of a great price?

Not really, one was a 2018 magwell, ambi, FCS CQB compact .45 and the other a 2009 BW carry .45, both are being converted to comped guns and the BW carry has the true zero system already on it from earlier work I sent it in for. Flat triggers and wide safeties as well for both

Just bringing them inline with my usual gun to have spares and slightly different versions

It’s been a buyers market for several years already. For a used, but like-new WC or other other high-end brand, 30 % - 40 % off MSRP is the going rate.

Where should one look for used high-end brands like WC?

High End can hold there value down in Florida - you may find a good deal but never a steal.
