Nice find. There is few things in life better than knowing YOU made out at a gun show. Usually as the consumer we draw the short straw. It is not often (in recent gun shows) there are any deals to be had!
What is a ss Match worth? What ever you can get the buyer to pay. IMO it is worth about what you paid, maybe a couple hundred more, but to a LOT, likely MOST people it is worth about twice, even three times that.
The Match pistol could not be given away it seemed and sales were so slow that HK DCed them from importation into the USA. Then 6 months later, after Tomb Raider came out, the prices climbed through the ceiling, ONLY because of TR. I cannot help but find it strange that many people make their pistol choices based solely on what some chick is waving around on the big screen, but to each his own I guess. Now it is very collectible especially for one in NIB or LNIB shape.
I didn't buy them for the collection because there were others I wanted more, thinking they would be around a bit longer. And that is one thing you can say for HK, if the gun does not sell, they don't dilly-dally around about yanking the plug on it and even with the later brisk sales, for some reason HK refused to restart importation. I should have bought two for the collection when I had the change and before the pistol became famous and skyrocketed into the stratosphere.
