Just got back from the range/shop and they have a used Dan Wesson Valkyrie commander in 9mm for $1,300. It looks to be in very good shape but does not come with original grips. It has the wood guardian grips. They have a Dan Wesson Specialist black duty finish (not the 2020 model) in 45 that looks like it was never fired for $1,600. Thoughts?

I think you can find a far better deal here on the Classifieds.
Spot on the money, give it some time, Id say less than a month and you will see either of them, both of them or something you want even more at a better price in the classifieds. Remember the LGS has rent and overhead to pay, if its a consignment gun then the seller factored in the 20-25% commission the store takes on the sale - always going to do better in the addict marketplace if you are patient.

Ted... if one of those guns is what you want........ or any other for that matter.... put a "Want To Buy" ad here on the forum... If you've got some cash, you'll find a Seller!

And... they are very different guns. If one doesn’t call to you, and you can’t buy both...

Wait and keep looking at the classifieds.

Lots of ways to spend your money there

Keep in mind with on line purchases , shipping and transfer fees . Plenty of good deals in classifieds , but take fees into account . Also read the thread about scams , just to learn how to do your do diligence .

I thought they were high. I just needed people to talk me out of it. I'll keep a look out on here.

A lot of times dealers have a high price tag in case someone wants to trade or pay with credit . Every dealer I frequent usually has a " cash price " if you ask .

They were on consignment. When you sell a firearm on consignment there you can put your lowest price that they keep hidden. I asked and both sellers had only one firm price. I'm glad I didn't talk my self into it like I usually do.
