There is 2 up for bid on the icollector site. Might be worth placing a max bid around $80-100. Not worth it much after that, just buy new. Few weeks ago there was a fwb 300s avaliable. I stopped bidding after $800 (yup, if you got one for sale I'm interested), it sold for $1700 CDN. Around $2350 after all is said and done?? Something like that. Ouch.

LW barrel and aperture sights.

I agree on the price.

Unfortunately no evidence that the 953C has a LW barrel. The ad shows 953C but the description is for an 853C.
The 953 regular didn't have aperture sights, sling, or LW barrel and had a plastic stock, vs the 853 that had aperture, sling, LW barrel and wood stock. I believe the current 953 offering is a regular 953 with a sling and aperture sights. The price has jumped on the 953 in the last few yrs since Daisy stopped making the 853 - but they are still very good rifles and excellent for training young and old shooters for 10m. I have had 2 953s and both of them could single hole 5 shot groups every group. :drinkers:

@Well it says it, and AGS is reputable so I believe it. In that case price is good.
I don't have access to my 853 ATM and I don't know if it says LW on the barrel itself, but apparently there are no such markings on the 953 Cadet TargetPro.

The Gun Dealer is mainly a powder burner store with a small airgun inventory. That would account for the inflated price. They are usually pretty flexible if you call and talk to them. I have gotten them to price match before. Like any business, they are looking to make a profit, and when you don't deal primarily with airguns, you cant compete with the likes of D&L and Airgun Source.
