Buying new vs used TP9SC Elite

Post by Jenkkimike » Fri Feb 07, 2020 5:48 pm

There’s a used TP9SC Elite near me for sale for $300. It seems like a decent deal but I just read Canik’s warranty policy and realized that it’s not valid for the original owner. Would that deter you guys or is the savings worth buying used?

That's a yes for me. Stuff does happen and a Century Arms warranty makes it all better.

Thanks. I figured for another $50 or so the warranty and leave of mind is worth it. On another note my local shop quoted me $417 out the door for a new TP9SFx. They have a policy where they will do free transfers for online orders if you give them a chance to give you a quote. They only came in $10 or so higher than the cheapest I could find online so I’m happy to work with the local guy. I don’t NEED another full size but I do want one that I can put a Holosun on..

Buy local. My guys here locally will generally be about $10 more too.

That's a great deal for a LGS to run. I wish places around me would do the same. I'd love to keep my money local if they'd put in an effort to come close to online prices.

My local guy did the same... $410 plus tax for my SFX. It worked out to less then the online price I was looking at when you factor in shipping and the transfer fee.
