Some of you guys sure do well at pawn shops. Best deal I ever got at pawn shop,years ago, was a new S&W Model 28 at "only" MSRP. Not what anybody would actually call a "deal". Last time I tried to do business with a pawn shop, owner wanted $140.00 to receive a pistol. I no longer go to pawn shops...

I read about guys getting terrific finds in pawn shops all the time, but honestly I have never seen a good deal at a pawn shop. When I check local pawn shops it seems like they really don't want to sell their guns other than shotguns. Now I have seen some great deals on used pawn shop shotguns.

I don't think I've ever seen a pawn shop gun that wasn't tagged at more than a similar, new gun costs.

I got my Benelli B77 in 32acp from a pawn shop, NIB for I think around $400.



Also my ASAI One Pro, a rare Swiss-made CZ clone in 45acp. Amazingly, they had two at the time.

About 8 years ago in a little Mom & Pop pawn shop a very nice Colt 1903 .32 for $225 and a pristine, never in a holster, round butt snubby S&W M12-1 for $200. Two scores in one! They really had no idea. I didn't even haggle; I was afraid they might look them up.

Rossi Model 720's have a sort of cult following. They are nice little 44 special five-shot revolvers that they only made for 2-3 years in the early 90's.

I paid around $400 for one and was amazed at what a good shooter it was.

A couple of years later I saw a hammerless version for sale on GB for $300 and realized it was at a nearby pawnshop.

I went there the next morning, offered $250 cash, and they immediately took my offer.

Apparently all that they knew was that a Rossi was an originally inexpensive foreign revolver.

We carried the One Pro at the gun shop I worked at YEARS ago, had a sweet trigger. Nice find.
