I recently saw a HP for sale and it was extremely used. A lot of that fantastic blueing was gone. The asking price was $550.00. I recently purchased a "used" HP that looked to me like it had never been fired. It was/is absolutely perfect to the point where I'm in a quandry as to whether or not I should shoot it. I was $740.00 OTD. I finally figured someone was going to shoot this gun and it might as well be me. Shot 100 rounds, cleaned it and put it back in the box. This pricing is in the mid-west.
