"I think I am going to buy it now. If I don't, someone else may buy it and I am going to miss this bargain...".
is the sentence above ok?
And "it" is not really "this bargain"; "it" is the thing you are going to buy.
Also the original sentence is very wordy. Something like the following is more likely to be said by a native speaker.
I think I'll buy it now. If I don't, someone else (probably) will and I'll miss a bargain.
