  • Did I get a good deal?

    Posted by Mateo on September 25, 2022 at 7:56 am

    Picked up a silver slide 43x with Ameriglo sights and Hogue grip cover, along with 500 rounds of federal FMJ and 50 hollow points for 700 total after tax. Did I do good or nah?

    I think you over paid.

    43x can be had new for around $500 +/- $25

    9mm ammo (you never specified grain)… current pricing ~$0.30-0.35 / round = $175

    I’d say you did ok given the current market conditions.

    Thats about what you would pay walking in to your normal every day shop for all that.

    If you were hunting good deals it could be had for less

    After reading the comments, they got you on the ammo. Decent deal on the gun. Could have gotten a case for the price you paid for 500. Either way, it’s only money. Enjoy your new gun!

    The seller pretty much made all their money back on the pistol and made profit on the ammo. So I’d say you overpaid.

    I’d show up with your new 43X and demand some cash back. Ofc I’m jk.
