Hello, I am hoping that someone here with more knowledge of firearms might be able to advise me.

I am interested in selling my 1975 Browning 9mm Hi-Power with the 13-round magazine capacity. Made in Belgium. Serial number prefix 75C, with all blued finish, checkered walnut grips, adjustable sights, and one magazine. I have 525 rounds of 9mm ammo to go with it.

Any idea of what it might be worth?

Thank you,
Tam

Thank you so much for the suggestion.
Though I am baffled as to how to start a PM... I have been stumbling around the website trying to figure it out. Could you please tell me how to start a PM? :)
One way to start a PM/Conversation is to click on "Inbox" near the top of the page on the right side of the black bar. In the box that pops up, you will see "Start A New Conversation". Click on that. Next to Participant, put in the members name you want to send it to.

That does not work for me. Maybe because I am a noob I am not allowed to start a PM. When I click on "start a conversation" In the "Useful Links" on the bottom of the page, I get this message:

Instead of going to 'Start A Conversation" under Useful Links, try doing it the way I explained in post #8.

I tried that. When I hover over "inbox" the only option I get is "Conversations", no "Start A New Conversation" option shows up for me.
Maybe me, as a noob can't PM folks as a way to keep creepy people from just creating a new profile so that they continue hassling someone.... it shouldn't be this difficult. :)
Thank you very much for all of your effort in trying to help me out.
Best Regards, Tam

Not disputing but how did you come up with the 1975 date? 1975 would make it a "C" series. You don't say anything about condition and remember a seller's 98% is a buyer's 88% or so they say.

FN ceased production of the Hi-Power last year or so and prices have subsequently climbed. Guns America has a 1976 C series with adjustable sights listed at $1,350. The owner is selling it as "new" but then with the caveat "...it may have been fired..." :rolleyes: Remember this is asking and not a final sale price. I think this is rather high. I would peruse Guns America and other similar sites.

If you're intent on a quick turnover on it I'd call Art's Guns in Hillsboro, MO. They are the premier repair/restoration center for browning firearms and will often buy such products outright. I've dealt with them for a decade or so and can highly recommend them for anything marked "Browning". Hope this help.

Hi 9mm Hi-Power,
Thank you so much for getting to me.
The serial number starts 75C_____. From what I found online, that makes it a 1975.
$1,350 does seem high. The reason why I am inquiring as to it's value is that I have seen wildly different prices online for these.
I inherited this from my father in-law. Never got a chance to shoot it much. Dealing with some health issues and need to sell it. :-( So quick turnover is not as important to me as getting what it is worth..... whatever that is. I don't have a lot of gun knowledge... but I know just by holding the Hi-Power that it is definitely NOT a Glock. :)
As far as condition goes, I can't judge.... the outside looks great but I would not know what I was looking at disassembled.
If I took it to a gun show and it was the buyer's 88% (smile) what do you think that I should ask for it?
Thank you very much for your input and advise.
Best Regards,
Tam

I can guarantee if you sell it to a dealer at a gun show you are going to get hosed. Before going that route and like I previously wrote contact Art's Guns in Hillsboro, MO. Your pistol appears to be in great shape and you should be able to get a good/fair price for it but that won't happen at a gun show. Call Art's. If you do I'd appreciate some feedback from you.

I wanted Tam to contact you because I knew you would cut through the crap and give him the best advice. He’s a new guy around here and I did not want him to get led astray.

Thanks. I hope I gave him some good advice - mostly avoid selling firearms to a dealer at a gun show unless your desperate for cash in hand.
