I am curious because I pretty much buy my pistols on the used market. It saves me $ so that I can buy a few more than paying full retail. However, it is weird that certain pistols never come up for sale used. I am not talking about the uber rare stuff but stuff that you should see more often. For example, S&W Shield, S&W 442, and Sig P365 have record sales over the year(s)...but you don't see them come up used very often. Then you also don't see Steyr M9, Walther Q5s, or others up either.
What pistols do you look for that don't come up for sale very often?
Pre lock 10 shot 617's.
Smith and wesson 610
Hk usp 9's
Jericho 941's in 9mm
S&W Models 581 / 681. And when I do run across one, it never fails that I am too broke to jump!

Some pistols never sell well and others prove so popular with their owners that they never come up for resale. Unfortunately, I've never been able to predict which way a particular model would go.
Models I would love to see available used more often? Ruger ("old style") Vaqueros, tip-up barrel Berettas in .380 ACP, S&W .45 ACP and DA/SA .45 Colt revolvers made in the last few decades, as well as their larger 10mm pistols, and of course Sig P220s chambered for cartridges other than the .45. I'd like to see another tranche of P7s brought in, but I'm not holding my breath.
BTW, if you're up for a Steyr M9A1 rather than an M9, Dunn's Sporting Goods apparently has some NIB pistols available for what looks to me to be a pretty good price.

Correction... Walther P5C (compact)
The P5's come up decently often, over 100,000 made, half-a-dozen on GB right now (including one "anniversary edition".
However, the P5 compacts are much rarer, only about 10k made. I once saw 2 compacts listed, one for a very reasonable price, but didn't act quick enough and someone hit buy-it-now...
I would add Korth or M73 revolvers to the list of pistols you don't see for sale often.

9mm 1911's. Decent amount of new ones being made and sold. You hardly ever see a used one for sale.
9mm S&W revolvers.

The designer of the gun had clearly not been instructed to beat about the bush. 'Make it evil,' he'd been told. 'Make it totally clear that this gun has a right end and a wrong end. Make it totally clear to anyone standing at the wrong end that things are going badly for them. If that means sticking all sort of spikes and prongs and blackened bits all over it then so be it. This is not a gun for hanging over the fireplace or sticking in the umbrella stand, it is a gun for going out and making people miserable with.'
S&W Model 41
I saw both of these on the same table this past weekend at a Gun Show. I was very surprised.
I sure don't see hardly any Smith & Wesson TSW guns.
Always carry. Never tell.

There's about a hundred up right now on Gunbroker. Being in production for such an extended period a lot make it to the used sales areas.
Walther P88 never seem to see them used and when I do there uber expensive!

^^^ And magazines, dammit, and magazines!!
Yeah, the P5 is available everyday.
Even the much rarer P5C comes up quite often.
Sig X5 Tactical
Now I wished I never sold that Walther P5C, the H&K USP9, the S&W 41, and the H&K 4.
At least I kept the Sig X5 Tactical!
