Default Value of grips

I found a gun at a pawn shop for $499 (probably get it for $400+tax) The thing that caught my eye was the grips. The grips were not chipped or cracked, and looked just like these in the link The gun is identical model but in much worse condition, I would rate it fair/poor, rough nickel, loose lock up, not irredeemable, but not good either. But I am not above buying a gun for the grips, and I wouldn't mind either passing the grips on to some one here as long as I came out OK on the gun. Looking for opinions. Thanks!

I've had the same type grips for sale at $200 and no takers, but maybe my timing didn't jib with someone looking for same. Ed.
