    Someone is selling an XD sub in my area (I have the service and I'm looking to get the sub for my mom as a CCW gun), and I was wondering if anyone could help me out with a price.

    Here are the facts:

    - Has approx. 800 rounds through the tube
    -doesn't come with any of the XD gear
    -seller is not sure of date of manufacture (so don't know if it's pre- or post-melonite)
    -has 2 10-round mags and 1 15-round mag
    -doesn't have picture so not sure if there are any scratches


    I don't want to lowball the guy, but with all those factors (high round count, not sure of manuf. date, etc), I'm sure I can get a pretty good deal on it. Any estimates would be appreciated!

    Oh, and for price comparison, I can get a new XD-9 service around here for $445 + tax.

    Where are you ?????

    Thats a darn good price for a NEW 9 service.

    So...... what does a new 9SC go for in your area? Thats your best guide.

    I'm in Virginia. Not sure of the SC price. I was at a gun show this past weekend and they were going for a little under $500 I think.

    On Gunbroker looks like new in box 9SC starting bids are 449. 800 rounds isnt much. Price would depend on condition. In like new condition for gun alone (no box or stuff) I would be comfortable with 400. 380 might be a good first offer.

    Just my thoughts..... I am not a used gun expert.

    EDIT : BTW I am a very happy owner of a 9SC. Great little gun.

    Myself and my gunshow buddies usually pay $400 for a well used XD9SC.

    I paid $410 for a lightly used one once.

    Beings it has the 10 round mags. I 'm thinking it and older one. Mine I paid $499 NIB for but it came with 1-13 round mag and a 1-16 round mag. and all the XD gear.
    (not sure when they changed though).

    I think that he has no idea of how old the gun is,then that sends up a red flag to me.:?: How does he really know how many rounds have been put down the pipe if he doesn't know something as simple as how old the gun is.:?: It also sounds that being he doesn't have the XD gear to go with it or knows how old it is makes me think he's not the original owner. More questions:?: I would not go above $350 for it. That's just my opinion though. There's just to many unknowns about the gun for my liking. If you can get the serial # you might be able to contact SA and give them the # and they can give you a better idea when the gun was made. (Just a thought) If he won't give you the # I'd walk away now. Something stinks.
    Please don't take this the wrong way. If it was my Mom/Wife I'd have to know more about the gun to be serious about buying it. If you can't get it for $350 that to me just means the gun was not the right gun for you or your Mom. I love my XD9sc but don't let the gun make you crazy in the head. Be a smart shopper it's not like it's the only one left, and there's new deals to be made everyday.
    Good luck .........Bluto.

    For another $50 I'd go for new.
    The 13 rd mags only came out a year or so ago.
    So not having them doesn't mean the gun is that old.
    I'm not even sure they made the XD9sc pre-melonite.
    Perhaps someone else could clarify that.
    Not having the XD gear isn't a big deal since it is worthless anyway.
    But as other stated, it could mean this isn't the original owner
    And who knows where the gun as been or who has cared (or not) for it.
    I keep everything my guns came with whether I use it or not; XD gear, cases, all paperwork, etc........
    Has your Mom handled and XD9sc before?
    Make sure the gun is what SHE wants, don't just buy it assuming she will love it...

    Thanks for the responses guys. She likes my XD-9 service, and her hands are way smaller than mine, so I think the grip on the SC would be perfect for her. As far as the condition goes, if anything were to go wrong with it, I have confidence in SA's warranty.

    Same here. Add a little more and get the new one. Under $500 here in Texas.

    get the S/n call Springfield ask them when it was made call local PD ask them if they can run a S/N against stolen guns! We have a public website in Florida to check them!

    Billy, this one sounds pretty much like that, except there were 800 rounds through it. Maybe something closer to $325 would be appropriate?

    I don't know.. Even a used xd might be hard to get for 325.. mine was also made in 06. I'm not sure when the one you are purchasing was made. The person might want more lets say if he bought it in 08/09.. even if you were to get it for 350 i would think it was a good deal... good luck
