With all due respect to others post. If you want it, buy it! I've missed out on a lot of guns I really wanted because of 50 or 100 dollars! Now I buy what I want, obliviously within common sense reasoning. Buy it, shoot it and most definitely enjoy it! Let us know how it shoots.
True enough statement above.
While I stated that it was more than I would like to pay.
I can spend the difference we are talking about in gas money in a week....and never get that money back.
Yet I could spend that same amount extra on something I would cherish for a lifetime.
I just like a good deal.
But make no mistake......if I want something...I get it.

Well, the peep site is about $65 at Midway. I'd offer $550 out the door and see what he says. That would be a little below average around here. Good luck.

^^^^That sounds like what I would do!
my 54 mountie cost 350 and a much newer golden in mint cond was 500 otd about 8 years ago
It doesn't seem so long ago you could buy a Mountie for 450 dollars, I foolishly passed on one about 8 years ago for that price. Now when I see them they are north of 700 dollars.
This past weekend I looked at a couple dozen at a trader day event. Seemed like $600 or better to open. Same thing with the older pump 22s. I've only got one that I bought in late 70s when my distributor was turning over the display rack guns, $72 with a few minor dings. I don't recall what a new one was at the time but it must have been a good deal or I wouldn't have jumped on it.image.jpeg

It will be the weekend before I can get to the shop. I may try to make a deal if it's still there.
$650 would be a decent New In Box older 39A.
