 New Unfired Vintage Browning Hi-Power -- Pre-Portugal Production

Northwest Firearms

So, I have decided to toss up a safe queen -- for you collectors out there, this will probably be your only chance to buy a vintage Pre-Portugal production of the legendary Browning Hi-Power new.
From everything I can tell it has never been fired or even taken down. I have personally racked the slide perhaps 3 times, but I could never bring myself to load, let alone fire it. It is pretty much perfect.
Comes with two new FN magazines, newer ergonomic black plastic grips (installed) and original wood grips. No box or papers, although such things are readily eBayed for those that care about such things.
Cash price is $1300.
I will consider REALISTIC cash offers in person -- Lowballs and SOB stories will be ignored. If you don't think it is worth this much do a little research.
Possible trades ONLY for the following in excellent condition: Colt Python, a Series 70 or earlier Colt 1911 (Gold Cup National Match strongly preferred), or a S&W Model 27 Pinned/Recessed w/ a 6" or shorter barrel.
A Registered Magnum would work too
That's it -- either one of those or cash, otherwise I'll keep it in the safe for awhile and see how much she is worth then.
Local PDX area transactions preferred, although for this one I would meet a WA buyer at a Vancouver area FFL for a cash purchase.
