Default 3rd Gen Prices

Trying to build up my 3rd gen collection,but have been out the loop for awhile. Do the 3913s bring in more of a premium? I really want one and found one locally for $450 OTD which includes factory cardboard box, 3 factory mags, and the smith action enhancement package. Pistol is in pretty good shape. Minor wear and a ding or two. Owner estimates 500 rounds total. Fair ? Im on the fence .

If the dings weren't too bad, I'd probably pay that.

Some justification...

if you found one on the big auction sight at $400, you'd likely have at least $450 in it OTD, without being able to inspect it first.

Seems out my way Third Gens are scarcer than hens teeth. Wait for TTSH or Gary to chime in on the going price.

That's a pretty reasonable price, at least in the Northeast. I don't know if the action enhancement package adds any real value, but it certainly doesn't hurt it.

Yeah, I'd say $450 OTD sounds fair. Most of mine were $400 (+/-) plus tax... essentially $425ish OTD. I don't know anything about that action enhancement package, but if we are talking tuning performed by the mothership, it should be a nice plus.

$450 OTD is a good price for a 3913 all things considered. The mothership Action Enhancement Package is $160 so that sweetens the deal.

Default Here in Virginia the nine mils and the forties are still a pretty good buy.

When you find them. And this is less and less with each passing day. However the .45 acp guns and the ten mil guns are steadily going up

Out of the last probably 7 4506's on that site went for above 600. With inflation the 4506-1 I bought in 2012 would net me a 50 dollar profit.

Still better than a sideways Glock. Or an upright Glock, for that matter!

Most of the 3rd gens can be purchased at fair to bargain prices recently.

To me, the 3913 is just about the perfect 3rd Gen, with the 6906 pulling a close 2nd. Mine I have had since new in 1993 along side a 5906.

Of all, the PC5906 (which is really a Performance Center 6906, don't ask me why it is model number as a PC5906) is about as sweet as it gets.

The 3913 has some weight but not as heavy as the 5906 but if I ever had to be in a firefight, it would be a toss up between which one I prefer, if I couldn't get my hands on a Sig P229 in .357 Sig fast enough.

Cannot knock a Sig against a 3rd Gen S&W nor vice-versa.
