I found a very nice .45 LC Buffalo Classic with 20" barrel for $400 (he was asking $475). Is it worth that? Is it a suitable caliber for deer to 100 yards max? Where I would use it would be likely 50 yards max...
If it is something you want that is a good price. And yep, with the right loads it will be good for deer to 100 yds. It can be loaded a bit hotter than a .44 mag with the right loads or just by you a box of Buffalo Bore bullets for it. Have fun with it. I have wanted to find one of them reasonable for a while now.
And they are good for a even more yards out that that!
$400 for nice clean examples seems to be the new normal. Its just money, it aint worth anything, where ya gonna find a traditional looking 45C rifle any cheaper?
You did fine, if you don't like it you can make that 400 back by parting it out.

I think $400 is reasonable for the carbine. I hunt with mine and the Hornady Leverevolution 225 gr FTX does a good job on deer. I have also used the Buffalo Bore Deer Grenade and it is a great round for hog hunting.
