    Found a guy with a 2nd generation P3AT with chrome slide, 100 rounds fired and wants me to make an offer. What is fair? I have not seen it yet.

    Depends a bit, but not much, on what it comes with. Extra mags, holster, etc. But in general:
    Great 150-175.
    Really Good 175-200
    Good 200-225
    Ok 225-250.

    I would say you did just fine, especially in light of the gun purchasing climate today.

    Back when I was shopping/buying for P3ATs I generally had a rule that for 80% of new I'd buy used but closer than that I would go for the new. But that is because I gamble on KT continuing to look the other way for second hand purchasers warranty service.

    Yes, I checked on GB before going to the show and there were BUY NOW prices as high as $375. NUTS!

    I only found two at the show, lots of 32s, the other one I found was $300. I almost flinched, but I had a goal of staying under $300. I've decided this dealer is pretty fair and will do business with him again soon. Good thing for me he's local.

    I bought a new Chrome P3AT just over a month ago via gunbroker. With shipping, FFL transfer fee, it cost me about $325 total. If you can find a chrome one slightly used like that, buy it. They are very hard to come by in chrome. I would have bought locally, but it would have ended up costing me the same amount and it could have taken months to get in, and I would have to front the money first and then wait.

    Offer him $200 cash in your hand,smiling.

    Otherwise,buy a new one.

    Keltecs are just getting better everytime the new ones come out.

    I'd start at $150 and work up. Beyond $200, I'd go with NIB. IMO, based on the significantly declining number of problems reported here, the newer ones are indeed better than ever.

    He wants $250 with one mag and a holster that he didn't give me details on.

    I think I will offer him $200, unless someone here can do better with shipping?

    Is the chrome really that much better?

    I offered him $200 last night and have not heard back. No big deal, I can find more when I get home. Sooooo does the chrome make a big difference?

    Chrome makes A difference, but I think most will tell you that how BIG a difference depends on preferences.  I have a 1st gen 3AT that is parked (there were no HC 3AT's to be found at the time); it has done fine and served its purpose well.  When looking for a PF9, the first place I looked had one in HC so I picked it up; I would have bought a blued or parked one if that is all they had, but the HC offers a little more rust resistance and a slicker surface so the $20-30 more they were asking was worth it to me.  Any Kel-Tec in HC is going to demand a little more money than blued or parked because it is considered a finish upgrade.

    I like HC, but its like the lady who kissed the cow--everyone has their own tastes!

    Guy declined my offer of $200 and I left his area so on to looking some more.

    The last two that my local shop had in were $240 for blued/black grip and $255 for blued/gray grip. I'm not sure why the gray grip was more but it was. Those two are long gone though.
