Is this a good deal?

Would you pay $600 out the door for a Browning High Power 75th Anniversary edition in pristine condition. May have had a box of ammo fired through it and the deep blueing is in perfect condition.

I know this guy personally and there in nothing wrong with the gun.

Is this a good deal?

Solid price if they bought it from CDNN they paid less than that NIB.

In todays market it is a fair price.

In this day and age with prices being what they are I too think it is a good price and good gun to purchase. You can easily get your money back if it turns out to be something you don't care for.

Browning Hi Power

I wouldn't buy the pistol if I were you. You should send the guy to me so I can straighten him out, LOL. I would jump on that in a heartbeat. If you don't buy it, please lead the guy to me in the forum.

Beautiful gun! And I just recently paid significantly more than $600 for my plain-jane, plastic-gripped MKIII HP.

Nice work. You'll always be able to find a buyer for Hi Powers if you want. But chances are, you won't want.

I like my Glocks but nothing looks better than blue and wood.
