    Steyr lp5

    Hi, help required.
    Got a LP5 in original cardboard box with all accessories, 2 air cylinders, 1xsingle & 2x5 shot magazines & a medium R/H grip. Thinking of selling as our club is folding and wondered if anyone had an idea of value. Have searched various sites and not many up for sale recently.
    Thanks for your help.

    The market is slow, but these are great pistols and seldom come up, the newer LP50s are typically going for around the 1200+ mark, so around 1100 would be a reasonable place to start, you can always reduce it if it does not go. It may also be worth looking at the dates on the cylinders as by now they could be short.

    Prices

    I would expect a price of 1100 would only be possible if you found someone who wanted one whatever the price.

    If they have to budget for a new grip and cylinders. They might as well buy a factory fresh LP50.

    I'm with Nick on this one, I'd have thought that 550 or maybe slightly more was around the right asking price as otherwise you start to extend into a price range where a much newer LP50 could be purchased.

    Sorry your club is folding, nothing else in your area? Nick and Vic are right, a good pistol but top is around 500.

    Many thanks

    Many thanks to you all for taking the time to reply, will put it up for 550 and see what happens.
    Only one decent club left but not taking new members as others have folded in the local area and they are full. Plenty of clay shooting clubs around here so might try a new discipline.

    Looks like my estimates are well out, good job I'm not buying one!

    Great pistols. Mine is over 20 years years old and has never missed a beat.
    A good buy at 550.

    I would have though 650 - 700 was achievable if condition is good,

    LP50's generally make 1000 used, The LP5 is a great pistol and not much out there for 5 shot, I'd start at 700, you'll normally get knocked down a bit due to the buyer needing a different grip etc and can always end up at 600 - 650, They don't come up often and generally sell quickly, the market is slow at the moment for target pistols but this has a niche market, If someones looking for one they'll go for it, if they're not it won't sell regardless of price. I had my Morini on sale for 3 months before I had a buyer, It was listed at 700 and in great condition, as soon as someone was looking for one he was eager to try it and paid the asking immediately, he got a bargain I got the wife off me back (I could have probably held out for another 100 or so but a small loss was worth the peace).
