    For sale 389 plus tax and background check out the door $411 with Tupperware box and 2 mags and manual... But noticed has the stainless tungsten guide rod... Besides everything original... What you value this at?

    UPDATE*****************
    The reason I didn't buy it yet cause they are 2 /10 round mags and it will cost me almost $50 to get 1/13 round mag... So its close to $500... Thats why I'm not sure...

    Given the current market condition I would think it would easily be worth 450 assuming it is in very good condition.

    Yeah. That's what I was wondering. However, even really good condition (not new), that is a good price in this market. If you want to make it original, the recoil spring assembly isn't much $$.

    You can replace the aftermarket part cheap if you want, a good 2 gen with mags is worth the asking price. WHAT ?!? You haven'yt bought it yet? Let everyone know where its at and somebody will snatch it up!

    Did you check to see if any other mods were done to it?
    Break down the weapon at the store and inspect it real good.
    If all seems ok after that, buy it.

    I have one and it feeds/digests everything.

    Good luck

    I would live with the 10 rounders until the hysteria dies down. 10 vs. 13... Ehhhh... A reload can be done awfully quickly if you practice it.

    Now if it were a Glock 17 and we were talking 10 vs. 17, it would definitely influence my decision a bit more.

    1o rounds of .40 in that size package is still considerable firepower, BUT...

    Have a look at the sticker on the box and see if it originally shipped with 13 round mags. If so, mention it to the shop owner and see what happens... ya never know.

    Good luck!
