    Hello everybody

    There is a M9 with 2 mags for $449 at dury's gun shop here in San Antonio. Is this a decent price for a M9 (old series). It looks to be in good condition. You can see it at durysguns.com

    Thanks, Brian

    You can get a brand new in the box A1 for the same money.

    An older M should sell for no more than$350.00-$375.00, and that's if it has the keys, box and manual.

    Are the magazines full capacity or 10 rounders ?

    my opinion...no....i can still find one occasionally at my local Gander Mountain for $349 +$50 off clearance tag.

    bought mine new 3 years ago for $329....


    but i have no idea if they have gone up in value for some reason since being discontinued....no what your local gun scene is like either

    I paid 475 for my M40A1 in Austin, that's a little high for an M9. M9's here in Texas are weird though either you can find them in the 320-400 range or they're still selling for over 500. The shop here in town has about 15 brand new M9's M40' S9's and S40's that they are still selling for 575-650, which is what they paid for them when they first got them when the M first came out. They refuse to drop the price or carry the new MA1's until they sell the M's they have. So eventually after about ten years or so when they will be rare and worth money I might buy one, but for now I shop somewhere else. If your looking for a descent price in your area go to Cabela's in Buda and last time I went there they had a few M's for 300-375, it's worth taking a look.

    Too much - get a new A1 if you are looking to spend that kind of coin.

    Thanks for the responses

    Thanks for the responses. I don't know if the mags are hi-cap or not. I think I will pass on this gun.

    If it makes you feel better, up here in the Not-Presently-Frozen North, they're running about $800 CDN (which isn't far off of US$ anymore) or so for either MA1 (haven't seen the .357 sig about).

    10 round mags mandatory, and an extended barrel, also mandatory.

    I'm still looking around to see if I can get it cheaper. Won't be much cheaper though.

    Ugh.

    Remember that the next time a Californian complains about their respective laws.

    By the way, the Steyrs are among the cheaper ones, which also includes the CZs and SA XDs. If you want a USP, a Sig, or a Glock, they tend to run between $1000 and $1300 Canadian.

    Unfortunately, we aren't allowed to cross the border to buy one, and if you try to import, once you're done with the duties and whatnot, it works out about the same as buying one locally, only more painful. Only real upside is there's no waiting period in this jurisdiction anymore (at one time they were sent to the local RCMP detachment where the sat for a month). As a whole, they seem to have streamlined the process, but the prices are still grotesque.

    A year ago in April I paid $350 at the Amarillo gun show for my S9 New or LNIB with 2 extra mags, box, manual key, etc. That was the best money I ever spent. May I suggest you will still be pleased you bought the gun after you have forgotten whether it could have been $50 cheaper. It is my constant companion. Yes, it would have been nice if it were .40 cal but there weren't any S40s at the show, and 9mm ammo is cheaper to shoot. The skill of the shooter is a lot more important than the caliber, and I have all confidence in my S9.

    I paid $299 for my M9 brand new back when CDNN had them on super-duper-clearance.

    I bought my S9 from a local dealer for $325 - also brand new. Though I also picked up another gun at the same time so I'm sure I got a few bucks off the deal.

    Regardless - $450 for a used M9 is stupid-high IMHO. You can easily get a brand new A1 model for that cost.

    I got my M9 with 1 10-round mag a couple of years ago when they first started dumping them before the A1 was introduced. I think they are somewhat higher now, but not that much higher.

    You know, for that kind of money, I might, JUST MIGHT, be persuaded to let mine go! :wink: :lol:


    Of course, I'd turn right around and buy a new A1 and pocket the difference! :twisted:
