Price of a Para?

Looking at a used Para GI TLC. what is a good price for one that is great shape? I have saw where some go for 500 and up so not sure if that a good deal or what? Any advice?

IMHO the Para GI Expert series are very fine firearms. They are at the lower end of Para's price structure, but I've paid over $600 for a used para that was basically the same gun, but before they started using the "GI Expert" moniker. (Only real difference is that mine has a ramped barrel.)

For $500 I'd be all over that deal.

Para has just released their 2013 models at the shot show. Here is a link to another forum, they have some great new models. Forged frames/slides and great finishes.
