Default S&W 3914 Current Value

Looking for help on pricing a 1993 S&W 3914 9mm for sale. Used, shot it twice, then cleaned and packed away in it's original box until now. Two (2) clips, manual and box included. In excellent condition. No wear. Box label says: Features: 85H-FS-AA-SB. Product Code: 102914. It's my understanding this is a Series 1 Edition and is an aluminum alloy construction. Thanks in advance for everyone's thoughts on this!

This is the standard production gun with alloy frame...that's what the AA (aluminum alloy) is referring to in the features.

As for value? LNIB may bring anywhere between $400 and $650 depending on location and finding the right buyer. Local sale would be less than an auction site. I think around the $500 mark is fair but that's JMHO.

I go along with this. An "as-new-in-original-box" 3914 is pretty darn rare around here (MA) and prices are up generally on non-cop trade-in 3rd Gens. The original factory box adds value too on top of the already excellent condition and two original factory magazines. In a private sale, I'd go $500 on that. I know of some shops that would ask at least $599 on that gun and possibly more. At $400, I would get my wallet out so fast that I might hurt myself.

I'd put it at $450 but the 1st,2nd and 3rd generations in excellent condition get harder to find each passing day.

Nice....... most folks would prefer a 3913 or NL ....... but a basic 3914 is a sweet gun.........your package $400-450....... maybe a $100 more but that would take awhile and the right buyer...................

I bought a 3914 last year in slightly lesser condition (not quite ANIB), with box, two mags, papers, holster - south central PA - $325. It was not a steal, but I was pleased with the price.

Oh, I'd call that a "steal" for sure if it is really as good as you have described it. Pennsylvania seems to be the "great price on used guns" capital of the world.

Or the "Home of the BS sale" stories, huh?

I can attest, though. My 3914LS (w/4 mags, no box) was $300 OTD a few years ago. It was probably 85%, but still a steal in my mind.

Not as good as the mint 39-2 (box, papers, tools) for $300 at the same store!

S&W autos are under-appreciated in these parts, and if you're patient, you can find some decent deals. It would help if everyone on this site would close their traps and quit telling everyone how great they are!

Over the last 20 years both 3rd Gen Smiths and Beretta autos..... have IMO been sold and traded "cheap" in W. Pa.

I've bought several 3913NLs and 3914 and 6906/04s for $300 or less sometimes with 3 or 4 magazines..... just too cheap to leave on the shelf. I got a "spare" 3914 anib/ used....IIRC with 3 magazines for $250 ...... granted it was 10-12 years ago.

Even gotten Milt Sparks holsters for 3913/6906s for $25.

This is truly "Steeler/Glock" country...ever since the Pittsburgh Police went to Glocks.....in the early 90s.
Plastic fantastic now includes a fair number of S&Ws ....... land of "it's too heavy" or "not enough bullets!"
