P-64's increasing in " Value " ?

Post by Granpooba » February 28th, 2018, 12:26 am

Already have two nice P-64's. Number one has a quality rating of 85 to 90%. :roll: Number two and which is my favorite has a quality rating of 99 %. Judging from having no markings on it, people can not determine if it was ever fired or even loaded. Presently, I do not even want to load for discharge the firearm, as I do not want to decrease its quality rating.

With what I have described and with what you folks own, do you see or hear that the P-64's are increasing in value :?:

I have researched and read that these firearms just a couple of years ago were selling in the mid one hundred dollar range. Now, I am observing that most are selling in the mid to upper two hundred dollar range. Know of one that the gentleman will not take less than $350.00 for the one that he owns.

Also, from what I have heard is that supplies and shipments of these firearms to the USA are becoming less and less. Thus, I am thinking that perhaps purchase few quality ones and hopefully down the road if one chooses, sell them and make some profit.

Finally I am enjoying reading, researching and purchasing these classic firearms, more than even thinking about the other modern, brand new models on the market. Even though, I do have a few of those in my safe. :lol:

Any other thoughts on this subject :?: Appreciate your input. :)

They most likely will increase in value if for nothing else than the source will dry up and supply dwindle. As in all commodities, when supply vanishes worth goes up.

I think it will be a long time before that guy gets Tree Fiddy for his.

I have to admit that the fellow who states that he has to get $350.00 for his P64, does have a very nice looking firearm. Viewing some very good pictures of it, could not make out any wear or marks on it and perhaps it was never issued.

But as I have stated, I do have one that I and other folks think that it was never issued or fired. And mine cost me $259.00 .

Maybe a few years down the road, he will be able to get $350.00 for it. :roll: And I will be able to get $260.00 for mine. :lol:

I know that he was offered $280.00 for his P64. But evidently he is holding out for the Three Fifty. :roll: I just hope that he is not also holding his breath for it. :lol:

$220.00 for one :!:
$200.00 for more than one :!:

But these are still great prices. My question is, do you know of anybody that has purchased one of these firearms from SOG :?: And have they offered up a review on their condition :?:

I paid $259.00 for one of mine from ( DK Firearms ). It appears to never have been issued or fired. :D

Mine increases in value to me every time I fire it.

I paid $179.00 for a very nicely finished hunk of steel.
Before the first bullet traveled down the barrel I didn't even know if it would fire and I had zero confidence in it.

In ZERO confidence I mean that it was an unknown.
Would the slide bite me? Could I stand the recoil? How about the ammo supply?
At $179.00 I would feel sort of foolish if it turned out to be a paperweight on my desk. It would not be the most expensive mistake I ever made though, let me tell you about this Indian motorcycle I bought once.
Could I even hit the target or would I have to throw the pistol at it?

At 100 rounds down the pipe I had proclaimed it reliable enough for daily carry.
I could go into rotation with my Beretta 84bb and my S&W Model 60-9.

At 200 rounds down the pipe it is the firearm that I reach for every morning when I'm getting dressed.

You tell me.
What is that worth?
GOD BLESSED TEXAS
