Default What is my Shield worth?

First of all, I apologize if this is the wrong place for this question.

I haven't decided to sell it yet but if I do, I'll sell it locally. I'm just curious what a good asking price would be.
I know the value has diminished a bit since the 2.0's came out but, it should still be worth a decent amount.

It has the Apex duty/carry trigger kit, 3 mags (two 8 round and one 7 round), 2 holsters (a kydex IWB and a Tactical Scorpion Gear paddle style OWB retention) and a kydex spare mag holder.
Also, a Hogue slip-on-grip.
Not that it really matters much since it's just cardboard but, I still have the original box too.

I think it depends on how much a potential buyer values the modifications and accessories, but I could see $400-500 for the entire package. No way you'll make back your investment, so I would opt to keep it . Good luck in your decision.

Grabagun had new gen1 shield 9 for sale at I believe $289 if I remember correctly.

Subtract for used condition but add in value of the holsters and apex and one extra mag. And that would be the best estimate.

Face to face sale will, or can save the buyer other costs like tax, shipping and paperwork fees.

If I were looking at a used Shield, my main focus would only be on the gun itself. Its condition, maybe how many rounds thru it and so on. I dont happen to be an apex guy, but i would want to know who did the mod and if stock parts were still there. Nothing against those who do the mods on their MPís.

Guess consider that a potential buyer could be gun savvy and know the Shield inside and out, or could be a newbie and may have concerns if its no longer stock.
For a price, I would only consider used if it is a large enough drop from new. Only my .02 of course.

A pistol is not the sum total of its parts, often times ad-on's like trigger jobs subtract value unless you have documentation from a reputable gunsmith

Around here they're going for around $300, maybe a bit more with the extras. I just bought one a couple months ago, with 100 round through it for $250 but that was just the gun and box and papers. They still sale pretty fast if priced right. Good luck with the sale.

Honestly I'd wait until after the election. If it (God forbid) turns to the Despicable's you could probably get more as I'm sure the stocking up will start.

You aren't going to get enough for a Shield to make a difference in anything... keep it for a nightstand gun where it will come in handy if needed. There are already over a million out there and quantity does nothing for enhanced value.

Don't know whether it matters but, in the summer of 2017 it was possible to buy the basic Shield NIB for $200, shipped to your FFL.

I agree with Ken158, just keep it. The value to you is higher than what it is worth to most other people; unless of course you find that one guy.

I personally don't buy guns that home enthusiasts have worked on. For all I know they're the second coming of P.O. Ackley, but that hasn't been my experience so far.

IMHO, you'll lose money as a package deal. If it were me, I'd sell the 3rd 8 round mag, kydex holder, and the trigger separably online. Sell the gun locally for $300-$320. I'd list the gun for $350 OBO though. If you list it for $300, buyers will ask for $275-$280. If you list it for $350, they'll come in around were you want... They like to feel like they've; however, sometimes you get lucky, and a buyer will pay listing price.

I've purchased and sold dozens of pistols via ArmsList over the years. The mistake you run into by asking price advice when you plan on selling locally is that people on forums will base their response on internet pricing. Guns command higher prices on the private sale and gun shop market. Many fail to realize this fact.

If you don't mind pulling the Apex trigger, I'll buy it off of you....

If you're selling online or on GunBroker, you look to see what others are currently selling for and what they sold for. If you want to sell to a LGS, you shop around LGS to see what they are buying it for. If you want to sell in a private sale, you get the picture...

ArmsList GA

This is the best deal at $300 with a holster. All others are at $350-$400.

In my area, I'm pretty certain I could get $300-$320 easy for a 1.0 with no accessories. Across country, used 1.0 are going for around $300 on the private market...

I bought two Shields from a former co-worker a month ago for $360.00, a 9mm and a .40 S&W. A .40 is worthless around here as there are hundreds of LE trade-ins sitting in shops gathering dust. The co-worker was offered $250.00 trade value for those two against a Sig P365. I offered him $400.00 but he could not find the eight round 9mm magazine.

There is nothing wrong with the original Shield, just keep it.

I personally wouldn't pay more than the going rate for a used stock Shield. Your modifications are your personal investment, not mine.

$200 face-to face; $150 net online. If you really want to know about selling other than face-to-face without shipping and transfer fees coming into play, ask these guys...they'll give you a price which you can take or leave. I think they're part of the Bud's Gun Shop family: Sell Us Your Gun - Guns.com

As mentioned, you would get more if you sold the extras separately.
Since you mentioned selling locally, put it back to original condition, check to see what a NIB First Gen would sell for (if they are still available) at a local gun shop and at most, start your asking price at 80% of that price.

If you decide to trade it, again, put it back to original condition (Gun stores don't care about mods) and hope for 60%-70% of what a NIB First Gen would sell for (if still available).

He knocked off $40 for a used 8 round magazine? I'll sell you all you can carry at that price.

Used plastic guns are never worth much. Which is why I know when I buy them (only have three) that Iíll likely never sell them. Not gonn take the huge loss. The $200 I might get for my Shield would not change my life a bit.

Funny how a beat up Model 10 is worth more than a barely used Shield.

I know they can be found under $30.00 on-line, but in local stores the mags sell for $34.00-$38.00 each.

Yep, I agree. I've learned my lesson the hard way re: plastic guns. As we speak, I'm trying to rid myself of a bunch of them and no one wants them. I can get more for them at a moonbat gun buyback event. Plastic buyers always want the latest and greatest version and one generation old ain't worth nuthin' to them. Can't blame them when brand new plastic is so crazy cheap.

In regard to a slightly used first generation Shield 9 specifically, I'd say if you can get $200 cash F-T-F, you are doing very, very well.

I have seen them as used and consignment in the last month or so for no more than $250 used, more consigned, but commission would knock it down to less than that to the seller.

If any of you are or if anyone who reads this thread wants to sell there Shield 1.0 for $150-$200, PM me. I'd gladly buy and will take the $100+ profit from resale/trade value. Just let me know.

$300. Nobody cares about extras and what the MSRP is on those extras. Good luck selling a [internally] modded gun.

A used Shield will not bring very much and it doesn't matter what after market stuff you have.

I'm a lefty so, the holsters have zero value. Sell those separately. I might bump my purchase price by $50 for the trigger, but I would be concerned that it wasn't installed properly so, maybe not.

Because they can be had new for $350, I would not pay more than $275. Maybe $300 because of the trigger, but I'd have to inspect it personally.

Maybe you can get more from someone else, but this is what I would consider paying.

All is well, I'm selling it to my brother.
Just FYI though, because I've used StrikeHold on it from day 1, it's in pristine condition. Not even so much as a scuff mark on it.
