Palmerized KP-3 price check/heads up

Ok I've been mulling over selling my KP3. It's the later style with the flat-backed bottom tube and push/pull safety. It's beautiful and shoots great but it's a little awkward for my style of play. Plus I'm always paranoid of banging into a rock and scratching/chipping the powdercoat. I'm thinning the herd of guns that I don't use as much. I have a few things I'm looking for trade-wise but also am a big fan of money, so I want to know if I DID decide to sell it, what I should ask.

These are old/ bad pictures I know. I'll snap more later.





It's spent lots of time with CP, and here's all he did to it:

Re-soldered with silver, and glossy-black powdercoated
PPS valve tune/barrel hone
Quick strip
Ported barrel
Sight rail with ghost ring (I know, not in the pic, but it went back to the shop for a few things)
RVA
Wedgits
Ball detent
Sheridan muzzle brake (pressed on, not coming off without scratching the powdercoat)

I completely stripped the stock and re-finished it with red mahogany stain, and many coats of tung oil. It's very glossy and looks wet.

There's 1 little blemish in the powdercoat down to bare brass under the barrel, just ahead of the c/a adapter where I accidently scraped it across the bare end of one of the bicycle hooks that it hangs from over my workbench. It's maybe 1/8" across.

I'm still trying to decide if I want to sell it or not. It's crazy dead-nuts accurate, as in 'tell me which branch to shoot on that tree way over there' and that's lots of fun when you can 1-ball people thru cracks in the bushes. Even Vivian, who's more of an accuracy-thru-volume kinda girl, has shot it a few times and was astonished at how she could consistantly hit things the first time.

So please let's fast-forward past the 'I'll give you $20 to take it off your hands' posts and please honestly let me know what this might be worth.

I disagree, that seems like a lowball to me, considering some much harder ridden KPs have gone for close to that price.

Last time there was a totally Palmerized KP that I saw it ended up going for something like $600 ish give or take on ebay. It was a KP2, so it had a SC feed and was nickel plated not powdercoated, so put that in consideration too.
However, I think the stock on this one is in nicer condition than the one I mentioned.

Other than that, I'm pretty clueless as to an exact price.

I payed 400$ for my KP3 earlier this year and it wasn't Palmerized. I have also seen other KP3s go for around 425 or so and they also where not Palmerized. I would say a bit higher then that as well.

Well true, I'll agree that with all of the work done, it can go for much more than $500.
