    Browning Hi-Power Mark lll. Opinions? And is $580 a fair price for the gun?

    I still can't make up my mind on what type of gun I want. I know this type of gun has more problems with something going wrong than an XD or something, but it should be more accurate, correct?

    a quick check of gunsamerica tells me that's a fair price. dunno if they're prone to problems moreso than other guns or not.

    More problems?? That is probably the most widely issued pistol in the world. Pick it up. The general consensus is that it is an improved 1911. I still prefer the 1911 though.

    This is the whole price break down:

    $579.99 is the sale price
    $19.95 fees
    $36.00 taxes
    $635.94 TOTAL

    I really like the Practical, but I can't find it anywhere online for a decent price. None of the stores around me come close to the prices I'm finding online either.

    I can't find an address on their website, but the phone number with area code 207 is in Maine. I'm in Michigan...

    Hmm. Flint is about an hour away...a little less. A guy I work with lives in Flint though and his wife just got him a gun for Christmas. Maybe he has heard of it.

    If the above price is decent I may just take that. I'll call around to some local places to make sure first, but I higly doubt it. Theres only a few small gun shops (most of the above from the google link manufacture certain parts of guns or specialize in rifles) and the rest are big name places like Cabelas, Gander Mtn, Bass World, etc.
