Colt Government 380 SS value

Good morning everyone.

I know condition - condition - condition. If a guess-timate was the subject, what would you guess-timate the value of a used but not abused (year of production 1991) Government 380 in stainless? No box or papers and only 1 mag.
Thank you all.

You asked for guesses and that is exactly what I'm doing, but around here I'd say that's about a 600 dollar gun give or take.

I agree with KCjeep. Not a great deal of interest in .380’s for me.

I saw a blue one here in at a LGS in NorCal about a year ago, asking $700 if I recall correctly. Don't know if it sold at that price or not, and CA tends to run to the high end of the market due to the weird laws here.

I’d say that around here, Iowa, th gun would sell for $600.00 and not a dime less.

I'm surprised, looks like 350 max to me. Guess I'm not a 380 buyer.

I don't know the market, but the Colt Govt 380 is my favorite 380. They are just a pleasure to shoot.

This is why I keep all boxes and manuals. I have an original Remington 51 that even has the $0.03 post card with it.

Same here, but my box is all in pieces. I need to send it off to a restoration shop.
