    And plan to spend around $300 for sure

    The last 1986 manual that I sold was a few months ago on ebay I believe it was August when it sold. I believe it brought $650.

    Yes it was mine. Thanks for the compliment. It's going to a good home, I know that for sure. This and the AL that sold back in March or April were my duplicate pencil barrel guns. I have a few pb's left that are duplicates but I may only sell one more. I'm downsizing a bit and purging my duplicate glocks that I don't have as much interest in. I am still collecting but only models that I don't already have or certain serial number prefixes. I've sold around 60-70 so far gen 1's, gen 2's, pencil barrels, oddball models, commemorative models, etc.. I'm about half way there.

    Generally speaking, the fall/winter are a bit more lucrative for firearms dealers. Even early spring isn't all that bad. I only know because I am one and have rode these trends since I became a gun dealer. We do get more credit card sales as Christmas approaches though. Overall, I'm happy with what it brought but happier that its going to a good home and to someone that will appreciate it. Should it have brought more? Possibly. But I've been selling on gunbroker for a number of years and know that there is always a risk when starting a penny auction. Sometimes it works out great. Others it doesn't bring what you thought it would. There is always a chance one way or the other. But again, I'm thrilled that its going to a good home.

    Thanks so much for all the information.

    sounds like it worked out well for the buyer and seller -congratulations to both.

    The above post confirm what I had I thought I remembered about the prices for manuals.

    The 86s over $500 and the 85s around a grand.

    We'll see if the trends hold when another sells.

    yup, might be establishing another year as "buyers market" (walks back to the gunsafe and puts away the Glocks (the doubles) I was going to sell this year).

    Why but a paper manual, when you can buy a very good condition Gen 1 with a manual for the same price? No brainer for me.

    The primary driver is that people with pencil barrel guns want to complete their gun. That's y
