supply and demand. good for him if he is doing good business. i think it is great. but[/color]... the gun is still used and has no warrenty. so essentially the premier grade is now a field grade. and you dont know what the previous owner has done to it (see some posts about guys insisting they are "A-o.k." to shoot 45 colts in their 454 cylinders). like g.b. said, for that much you can have a new premier grade with the warrenty, and set it up how you want it. dont apply new prices to used items (scope and mount). used is used. sometimes you get a great deal, other times you just bought a giant headache.At a gun shop here in Delaware the guy sold 2 premier grade without anything but the gun for $1300 to $1350. How you can say it is not worth it is baffling to me. The TSOB mount sells for $140 the scope is close to $300 and the holster is about $100 if not more.
