    The market is so soft right now that either the pistol is a super super deal or an unusual piece to draw activity

    It’s 100% a buyers market. Softest I’ve ever seen.

    You are either sitting on it, or giving it away.

    Brutal seller's market presently even for properly priced pistolas. Hang on and don't give in to the lowballers if you can.

    What others are saying. Did you see the $1650 Mono sitting there still? Those usually bring a $200 premium over a regular Baer so it’s priced very aggressively. GLWS

    January is when bills from the holiday come due and New Years resolutions to cut spending begin etc. Give it time, even a couple months if necessary, it’s priced right and still affordable for many. You’re almost $300 off CJs pricing so it’s a good deal.

    Since you asked I’ll answer. Market definitely sucks. A new one is around $1850, you’re at $1700. That’s 8%. Anyone badly wanting a Custom Carry might as well buy new. Just my opinion, which is worth zilch!

    I’m reassessing my firearms and have a few I want to move. The ones that are under $1000 I’ll get online soon as they’re relatively affordable to lots of folks. I’ll still price them aggressively. For the more expensive ones I’ll wait until it’s warmer, folks have paid off Christmas and have their tax returns, as stated above. Of course, I’ll probably have to pay in extra to Uncle Sam. Someone’s got to support the freeloaders!
