It will be interesting to watch, you're probably right.
Wow, never get tired of looking at them. $2925
I was thinking the same thing but my prediction was a lil under $3k. It should have the Nowlin barrel judging by the date on the certificate.
The guy selling that did take some really good photos.
It will break $3k for sure.
It will go for more than $3k, for sure.
What am i missing here that is making this a $3000 handgun?
if all you guys are saying it, im sure its worth it.... but what is the rare/special part of this 1911?
The gun is built to exact specs that Springfield uses to build the FBI HRT and SWAT Pistols. It's a TRP on steroids. The only difference between this gun and the FBI issue weapon is the serial number prefix. I believe the accuracy requirements are 1 inch at 25 yards.
Thanks! That helps shed some light on it.
Beautiful 1911 thats for sure
I think it's mostly the FBI hype that's making it a $3000+ gun. That, and the relatively small number and 1+ year wait time to order one. They're great guns I'm sure, but the prices they're commanding lately are pretty crazy. A used one just went for $3125 about a month ago. I'd love to own one, but there's no way I'd pay that kind of money for it.
Exactly, to some the Pro is the end-all of 1911's. When I was waiting on mine used Pro's were in the $1800-2000 range. Now, the prices are crazy, but people are still buying.
Maybe I'll post mine up for sale...
I love my Pro, it's one of my favorites, but for three large, I'd be doing something custom with Fusion.
Well, .....something custom
It'll be a grab bag 1911...you don't know what you'll get until the gun shows up at your FFL's door. He'll throw in some FCS cause you had ordered that FSC.
Name one current production 1911 in .45 which has increased in value besides the SA Pro.
How has the Pro increased in value as a whole? All these auctions show is some people can't wait, not that Pro's are worth more to the vast majority. 10-8 and M4Carbine are the best places for realistic pricing, the last Pro on M4 sold a little over month ago for $2K.
I remember when Pro's were selling used in the $1800-2000 range consistently.
Maybe I'm missing your point. Again, all it shows is some people can't wait. Same reason I sold a VM-II for $250.
Almost any Colt.
My point is that their popularity is increasing. We'll call that demand. As you are aware the supply has not. The msrp has increased which in and of itself is not rare. So, you paid say $2500 for a new pro in the last two - three years. You could easily sell it for more than that now in the same condition.
This is completely false, but I'll play. Please provide your top five.
That's debatable to me. Just because as few have sold recently for high dollar isn't any different from the past. If there were a large amount of newer orders, then I'd agree.
I'll find out soon enough, hopefully you're right.
I know the shooter who purchased that $2000 Pro listed on M4; he found it on another forum. And in keeping with the theme of patience vs price that Pro is now with another shooter who offered almost $900 more just two weeks later.
A shooter in town has a gently used TGO1. He was offered $3500 for it last month. Declined without hesitation. Hopeful buyer said the wait is the most painful aspect, more so than the financial beating.
