    Question Performance Center Shorty .40 value?

    Hi guys!

    Long time Smith owner, first time poster.

    I have a Performance Center shorty .40 MkIII with a fairly low serial (KPC0197). I saw a similar but higher numbered pistol (with one less factory mag!) go for $2,000 on gunbroker.com.

    Um, is this for real? Are these pistols really commanding that type of scratch?

    Thanks in advance for any info you can provide.

    2K would be a bit unrealistic. but you know how people are when they get to bidding! The Shorty Forty is one of the most desirable 3rd Gens. I have a stainless one myself. Wonderful shooters. I got a great deal on mine from a friend. If you have box & docs I could see it hitting in the $1200 range easily. Yours looks pretty nice so it could happen. I dream of finding a Shorty Forty Five one of these days.

    I agree with bro Tim, unless ya find someone who REALLY wants it, 2k is gonna be a hard sell. Its a great pistol, easy to carry with a good combo of concealability and fire power, but 1200.00 or there-a-bouts is a solid number for it, in my opinion of course. It'd be a great CCW, best of luck, Mike.(that un that sold on GB looked brand new in box)

    On the one that sold for $2k the description read:

    "Great little gun - you won't find these for sale - has custom barrel with adjustable sights - gun is in great condition - only 1 mag and no box. "


    I've got mine priced starting at half that, it's got a sub-200 serial and the two factory mags, so hopefully I'll get some interest.

    sorry to resurrect this thread, and this being my first post, but as a shorty forty owner i am curious to know if a low serial number makes any difference in pricing? reason for asking, i am considering selling mine and want to be sure i get a good price for it. thanks all in advance, and again, apologies...not trying to jack the thread.

    also, congrats to op on sale
