Guys, if I ran across an opportunity to pick up a completely flawless P89, in box, with one mag, is $250 a deal, or a killer deal? Gun truly looks like it was made this morning.

(Note: I first wrote this as P85, I was mistaken)

Sounds like a good deal to me.

I'd buy it for that

I'd say that would fall into the good deal category. Killer deal would have to be under 2 bills, IMO. They're great pistols, but they are outdated. I would have a hard time passing on it for $250 though.

Oops! It's a P89... Oh well, I got it anyway.

Got one last Saturday at a gun show for 250 OTD. came with 2 mags and no box. I have a box. Shot it today after cleaning and lubing. They may be outdated but they shoot damn good. And they will still make a bad sore on somebody not to mention messing their whole day up.

And, if you run out of ammo, as a last resort, you can throw it and try to give them a concussion. That was the first pistol I owned and it's a great feeling, reliable gun IMO!

Id buy it all day. I still have my stainless p89dc from 16 or 17 years ago. My favorite semi auto of all time. At 250 I would buy 4 of them.

Well, so like I said a while back, I got this thing, this... this... sow's ear, as many have called it, and shot it once or twice, tweaked the fixed sights a bit to center it, then left it languishing in the cheapest gun rug I had, and there it sat.
I sort of ran into a few ideas and good deals on pieces/parts to improve the feel/looks of it. I don't really know if I did either, but I added a set of new/old stock Uncle Mikes rubber grips for it, (side panels only), and as I ran into deals on factory P89 mags (oh yeah it's possible, but you must be patient!), I snagged them, for a total of three now, and the ugly gun has it's original box, so I found a Ruger mag loader tool and threw it in there. Now I just finished installing a set of LPA fiber optic adjustable sights on it.
There. I'm DONE. (I think?)

Nice indeed. Good price for a good gun. I found one a couple years ago, stainless, for 279 that was like new and complete with all factory goodies and later, a de-cock version, gun and one mag for 219 otd, I bought them both.

You know, either way, it was cool to find an "old school wunder-9" in such nice shape, and allowed me the chance to do a thing or two to it, heck, maybe other additions/improvements if I stumble into something worthwhile and priced right. Hogue actually makes some sharp looking exotic wood grips, maybe even with a palm swell.

Sounds like a good deal to me for a P89 in great shape. I have a P85 that shots anything and might be indestructible.
