Ruger 22/45 Mark III Help



So this gun was given to me as a birthday present and I'm not one to sell my guns, but I don't want to spend the money to buy a scope for it. What would the OB pay for a pistol like this?? I also have put a custom 2-tone paint job on it and only put 20 rounds through it

200 bucks. Maybe 100 if your "custom" paint job sucks.

Was thinking the SAME thing... Some people can totally frick up a gun when doing this yet make themselves believe it looks good. I'd have to see the finished results.

Is your custom paint job like this?



Because if it is, it ain't worth much.

Haha. I didn't paint it. I had it done. It's OD green on the frame and flat black on top. The picture I had you couldn't really see the difference. And only $200??? Might as well keep it then

The green on mine is a little darker than this one. But this is the picture I had the guy go off of

In other words: "The paint job I had done is pretty shitty and I'm too embarrassed to post a picture of it."

So yea... $200 IF YOU'RE LUCKY.

Those guns are a hair over $300 brand new IIRC.

ANY aftermarket paint job brings the value down IMO.

Selling BD presents = bad karma imo
Would make a nice gift to someone who would appreciate it though.

You could probably get $150-200 for it on a trade if its in really good condition.

You could probably sell it outright for 250 or so.

It's in excellent condition. Put 2 mags through it and put it up after I had it painted

If you're bent on selling it put it up for $275-300 and see what you can get.

Hell some idiot might think its worth 500 because of the paint job. Ya never know.

And somebody might not want to give you 100 bucks for it cause of the paint job. I am guessing since you dont want to post the pic that it isnt really that good of a paint job.

Hell I'll buy it and strip it to the bone if the paint sucks. You don't necessarily need a "scope" because it would be impractical and heavy as frick. But if you slap a Burris fast fire on it, you'd be Rollin.

Wanna trade it? I've got a GSG 1911-22 that I'd trade you for it.
