    I seen one at a show, couple of years ago. Was still there when I left. Didn't impress me as being practical handgun, because of weight and size.

    Because of this, don't have a clue as to current value. I would imagine it would be comparable in value to the various "assault pistols", on the market nowadays. That are built on AR & AK platforms.

    None of these so called "assault pistols" are by themselves really practical firearms, IMO, including the cut-down versions of the AR and AK guns.

    With a folding stock (or better yet, stock, vertical grip, and burst fire) you may have a viable submachine gun, and that's potentially useful. But absent at least a stock, what you've got is something functionally no different than a conventional handgun with extra-high cap magazine, only bulkier and heavier.

    Interestingly, this particular gun actually WAS designed as a legit submachine gun to take a folding stock and vertical grip, though those accessories would be illegal to attach absent Federal paperwork and registration. Build quality here is high; this is a "real" gun not some junky gimmick gun like the Tec-9 or such. The company that makes these is defunct, and the number of them actually imported is low, so prices are fairly high.

    To answer the question, a quick read of the 'completed sales' on the auction site here shows a number of legit bids for these pistols in the range of $680-$1500, depending on condition and accessories. 45 ACP guns are quite a bit rarer than 9mm, and might be expected to command a bit of a higher price.

    I'd say for yours like new in box with one magazine a reasonable asking price of would be $900-1000.

    Extra mags or other accessories could potentially increase the value quite a bit; these things can't be all that common and are no longer in production. I'd imagine the quadruple stack "casket" magazines probably command a nice price all by themselves.
