Sako Quad $$



Log in to see fewer ads
Local guy has a Sako Quad in .22 magnum. This is a blued rifle with the synthetic stock. Currently has what appear to be Optilock rings and a Burris Compact AO scope. He is asking $1295. Pretty high isn't he?? Gun is in as new condition.

Yeah, the rings and scope are worth $300, so he wants $1000 for the gun. If it was a two barrel set it might be close, but I'd pass on $1300.

I would pass also. That gun will probably still be there 6 months from now. Offer him $1000 for the whole setup. Make it a standing offer. Some day in the future he will realize $1300 is not going to happen and might just call you.

I have one that comes complete with all the goodies in an aluminum case plus extra mags and a walnut stock. Can't get $1500 for it. Funney how valuable these guns are when you buy them and how worthless they are when you want to sell them. I noticed that the Blue Book has a category for new guns that were purchased and not ever shot, they discount them by 20% just because you're not the original dealer. I used to think guns appreciate over time, wrong on that one !

If it were ammo the guys here would label him a gouger.

Not atypical for a "newer" production firearm with a limited market. The market demand for Sakos is hurt by the fact that Beretta doesn't make any effort to market them in the USA, and the parts and support are expensive and limited.

Quads are great guns, but the idea of a 4 barrel set isn't appealing to most US gun owners that aren't restricted in the number of guns they can shoot or on storage space.

Finally, appreciation on most firearms is typically slow and a low rate of return. Guns are not a great financial investment, it's a rare gun that has returns greater than 4% a year. However, you can shoot a rimfire rifle and it will only loose 20-25% of its value if you keep it well -- that's not going to happen with a new car.

I wish I would have bought two more when they were dumping them a few years back.

Moorepower, what were they "dumping" for a few years ago? I never saw prices below $1,000 (well $999) for the synthetic, which I bought. Was this considered a "dumping" price? At the time I thought it was a bit pricey, but I wanted one and could afford it. Not griping, criticizing, smarting off, etc. just asking.

I think they are smoother and better finished than the CZs but not sure they shoot a whole lot better.

I should have been clearer. I paid $999 for the four barrel set. I later picked up a .22lr only at Sports Authority for about $375 +/-. Gave that one to my brother who added the other 3 barrels over time. He also ended up with about $1,000 in it with the extra barrels.

They are getting expensive, about $1K on most sites Gunbroker etc. Sounds high to me however. Considering selling mine, would not list it for that much. If one is patient and looks around a one barrel gun will found for less. With more barrels and a scope then perhaps.

My history of prices

I bought a .22 LR and then a second HM2 both were priced right at $499.00.

Prices dropped to 399.00 for a time after my two purchases. Both are great woods guns and both shoot very well.

quads

I have 4, one in each caliber, paid 400 each for 3 synthetics and 499 for a wood stocked Hunter. Seller by the name of Supo was blowing them out on GB, would have 5-10 at one time.....and then they were gone.
