Default Out of the loop on pistol prices. kimber eclipse ultra ii - $700?

2 kimber mags, 2 normal size wilson combat mags, 1 extended wilson combat mag, leather holster, and the case.

I had an ultra CDP, and I hated that gun with a passion because of all the issues I had with it, and I swore I would never buy another one. This seems like it is priced right, and the guy selling it is trust worthy, has aprox 600 rounds through it, never had an issue. My question, is $700 in the ballpark for this? He needs money, and is selling some stuff he would rather not, so I don't want to rip him off, nor do I want to be ripped off.

There is not a mark on this thing, looks brand new.

Kimber's suggested MSRP is closer to $1250, unless I looked at the wrong model.


On the flip side, a lot of kimbers are listed around the $900 mark on the online gun auction sites. If you two are both happy with the $700, I wouldn't worry about it. If you plan to resell, consider giving him first dibs at or around the price you bought it for, or cut him in on any profit that might be had...

With the extras plus descent load count through it, I figure it would be around 900-1000.

I'm not worried about the handling aspect, just trying to help the guy out, and if I don't like it, I'll sell it or trade it towards something I would actually carry.

$700 is a good deal for it. I don't think he's got it priced too low, at $700 it would sell fast, and that would be ideal since he said he needs money.

You could at the very least get your money back in a hurry

Under the slide release? Not familiar with 1911s and have wondered what this means.

that's correct if you find a 1911 without one it most likely has never been fired or taking apart to be cleaned, there is the rare occasion that one has 1000s of rounds through it and a dozen cleanings without one.

So why's it called the idiot mark? How do you avoid it?

to my knowledge, it's from taking the gun apart to clean it and forcefully re-inserting the pin back in the slide. You punch down on the pin to hard, while pushing it up and it makes the scratch mark. I do that every time I put mine back together and have still not figured out how it's "supposed" to be done

Or

Use a cell phone screen protector, guitar pick, playing card, hotel key card....

Or

File the release so the plunger can slide in on its own when installed straight down.

I've been looking at 1911's recently, and I've been seeing used kimbers priced anywhere between $700-$1100 depending on the model. It's a fair price for both if he's looking for some quick cash, but he could get more if he held out for the right buyer.

If you decide not to buy it, send me a pm with his info, I'd seriously be interested.

I've had my 1911 apart a few times, have yet to put the idiot scratch on it.

CC, seems a little low. With those things going for $1000-1100 new, I would expect used to go for $800. With that being said if he needs money, $700 is damn good.
