Did a little horse trading at a not so local FFL... Here is my pull for the day.
In NJ, I can only take one home every 31st day with a purchase permit. So for now I just have the pictures.

1976- S&W Model 28 Highway Patrolman.
1959- Colt Woodsman Match Target.
1980- S&W Model 25-5 in .45 Colt, 8 3/8". The bluing is exceptionally nice.

Please post pictures of your recent horse trade acquisitions .

This is going back a ways...but I traded two Rugers ( P89DC with 4 mags / Security Six ) that I bought used about two years earlier ( 2003 ) for $200 apiece to an LGS for

a NIB Ruger Bisley Vaquero ( Old Model ) in 2005 with a price tag of $500...but I had to pay the tax and NICS charges. Not a bad deal in my book:


.357 Magnum

About a month ago I traded for this Colt SAA at $400. Made in 1910 and converted to .22. The gun has real stag grips. Markings are crisp, including serial numbers, but the barrel markings are gone. The cylinder shows no signs of damage and under the light patina is fully engraved. The bore is dark, should clean up. It is mechanically excellent. I cannot explain the damage to the gun and the seller had no knowledge as to how it had been eaten away in areas. It performs as well as any early SAA.

Not a recent trade, but a few years back I traded a well used Remington 870 with riot bbl, that I'd picked-up for about $90.00, a RWS/Diana air rifle,that I'd been given as a sales sample, and $100.00, for this 1959 vintage S&W Mod. 41 with the less common field bbl. This was at relatively new LGS, and as you can imagine, with doing trades like this, they didn't stay open for very long.

Best regards,

I've made two trades,
First one, 1980 Nickle SAA in 357 , 7 1/2 barrel, was reworked sometime and had a truly hair trigger, paid $1,150 for it and traded for this really nice clean 38 Diamondback.
Second one, SS S&W 1911 that I paid $650 for, for a Colt 22 Peacemaker with two cylinders.
Feel I did OK with both trades.

I traded a Glock Gen 4 G27 for a Ruger LC9s, and got a few dollars out of the deal, also. It doesn't compare with some of the nice stuff some of you here have, and thus photos are not warranted, but the LC9 fits in my pocket a lot nicer that the Glock.
