Price on used Wilson CQB compact, stainless

My local shop has a used Wilson CQB s.s. compact model, "previous owner shot a box thru it". He is asking $2300 for it, I am interested. Priced too high?

Thanks guy, glad I checked. I am totally out of the loop when it comes to .45 costs.

as long as your patient, you can get deals like the one i mentioned, but retail is over $3k new, and there are auctions for used ones as high as you say. i'm just not sure who is paying that.

in fact, my quote "they often go for $1400-1600" should have been "they occasionally go for $1400-1600". they often sit on gunbroker for $2k-3.5k

I would love to find one for $1800 in LN condition. I do not watch GB every week, but most that I have seen are over $2300.

That's a fair price if it's what you want. Not great, but fair. The question is whether it has the options you want without putting extra into it.

It's in excellent condition, I would love to have it. Finding a .45 right now is not easy , at least in my part of the US.
