    I have a Springfield XD tactical, 45 cal, has had a Powder River Precision trigger job done, has Tru Glo tritium sights, 6 13 round mags, 2 mag holders, a Serpa holster, and a original hard storage case. Has around 1500 rounds through it.

    What is a reasonable asking price?

    Thanks

    reasonable sounds like maybe try to get what you paid for it. i dont think it would hurt asking a bit more expecting him to offer lower.

    What was paid if bought new including mods and xtras less 20% maybe, but if he bought it used, what he paid for it is reasonable to ask.

    $450-500. Peripherals and mods are good but seem to fetch very little. The extra mags are good. Holsters, cases and even night sights seem to not matter much to buyers. Trigger jobs seem to have the least amount of influence in used firearms purchases.

    In today's world, mags and included ammo are king.

    This range sounds about right to me. However, I usually buy things on impulse and find out later that I overpaid. :rolleyes:

    I think you could get that in good condition, as listed. No problem.

    I'd agree with the $500 to $550 range, depending on where you are trying to sell it. Some locales can get you a better price, depending on firearm availability. If you lis it on here though, that is kind of a moot point. Sounds like a nice shooter though. Powder river precision does some nice work. I want one of their custom 1911's so bad it hurts me a little bit inside.
