Just hopped into the LGS to pick up a grip for my fiancé's beretta, and noticed they had a vp70 in. its used of course, looked pretty good but definetly could use some TLC. He is asking 625, which I thought was a steal but I wanted to confirm what they are worth. Thanks in advance guys

The price sounds high to me. I bought one 3 years ago for 500.00. It looks like new, came with all of the original packaging, 4 magazines, a cheap holster, and 2 hundred rounds of HP ammo. PLUS, he delivered it to me.

VP70 prices seem to be fairly stable. They just don't have the common appeal of the other models. That said, I have 2 and really enjoy them.

There's a local shop here that has one for 449.99. If he comes down to 400.00, I may bite.

The good condition one I was looking at a couple days ago was $550 in Michigan.

If you want a HKVP70z, post a want to buy ad here on the boards. I'm pretty sure you can find a better deal if you look around a little bit. I have a "NIB" version (2- mags, manual, box, and test target) that I bought back in '03 for $525.00; it seems that the price for these has stayed right around that same price point for several years now.

Best,

TC

Truly nice ones are hard to find. By that, I mean NO scratches on the slide whatsoever, a box in good condition, including original green foam and cardboard mag separator, manual, warranty card, and ESPECIALLY the test target. GB often has ones that claim "NIB" or "complete" and rarely actually are when the seller is questioned, and usually are advertised with almost purposely blurred pics so scratches can't be seen, or only one side of the article shown. A 9x21 model a month ago went for $1,025 without the test target, but those a rare. I wouldn't pay more than $700 for an extremely clean used example with all the above in 9x19, and if a truly "NIB" surfaced as complete would have to think to go more than $800. I was prepared to go $1,500 for the 9x21 but dropped out when the seller admitted it didn't have the test target when his ad said "complete". There was one posted here the other day for over $900 claiming "NIB", again with blurred pics of only one side, which is to high in my opinion.

VP70Z's will forever get bashed by everyone, including expert insiders but if you have owned and relied on one they become a worthy and trusted friend. I've stated this a lot but if you had one "back in the day", you had one heckuva gun over ther others commonly found, and it made quite a statement, regardless of the "dreaded and horrendous trigger pull".
