only one I could find here in town is at a dealer, NIB for $499.
seems ok with the current price hike-how does that compare around where you guys are?
thanks in advance,

Just yesterday in Valapariso, IN I saw a new stainless Colt 1991A1 (black trigger) tagged at $750.00! At that price it's gonna stay new for a while.

I bought a used one at a different shop for $450.

They can run you about $600 in Northern Virginia, but then again everything is pretty pricey around the D.C. area.

Yeah, good price, they go a little higher around here too. Of course you could lay down $450 all in twenties, looks like a lot of money in one pile,and say and lets make a deal, ya never know, it might be yours.

Good Luck

At a gun show in Ft. Worth today, a standard 1991AI best price was $469.00 and stainless for $100 more.

I stated in a previous post that I ran across an outfit on the web that says they sell guns 5% over cost. They listed as an example a New Colt 1991A1 for $389.99 It is Statewide Pawn Shop out of St. George, Utah. Nobody stated any experience with them, good, bad, or indifferent. What you have to factor in is finding an FFL to do the transfer and what they would charge, and shipping. You can find some FFL's to do transfers on gun auction and brokerage sites on thw web

Hope this helps a little.

I only see them used in Elko 6 months ago and now Las Vegas. And the used pricing is $550 for S/S and $450 blue park used. If I was still interested in 91s I might have more info. I'm on to bigger fish the Trophy S/S maybe again(already bought and sold one). And the almight Special Combat Government(can't wait to see one for $1000). I love my 91 and would'nt trade my 91 or the 91 experience for a SAA 45LC from anothers Walker to SAA experience during 1899. Does this make sense?

Here in Fl I got a 1991 A1 a1 stainless new for 550 out the door last week, local range has the same gun for 900 before taxes and it will be there for a long time , according to him they are out of production. He is in my opinion pricing himself out of bussiness, his used gun prices are higher than new ones in other shops in town.

O1091LH3 Colt 1991A1, Matte Stainless with Videcki Trigger, BO-MAR sights and X-Grips.

In SC, List $889, Purchased for $750 on 5/30

You buys your tickets and you takes your chances. My local gunshop has a wild range of prices. Some are excellent prices on high end guns, and some are $100 over new retail for a well used gun. Unfortunately, that's the rule more than the exception in my experience.

Whether at a gunshop or gun show, the best negotiator you can have is a pile of cash sitting on the table.

Don't abuse the dealers, though. I'll pay a little more than I could get the same thing for over the Internet because I like having someplace to go hang out on Saturday afternoons after I've been to the range.
