Default Should I Trade?

I may have an opportunity to trade for a SIG P220. I have a Ruger Super Redhawk .454 Casull that I have been considering trading off. Not sure if the guy is interested in the Ruger though. I have fired a similar SIG that a friend of mine has and it is a nice gun. I currently do not have anything in .45ACP, but I was hoping for a 1911.

What do you all think?

the Sig p220 is one fine pistol as is the Ruger Redhawk. maybe someone that knows gun values would be able to assess the approximate value of both to see if it's an equal trade. if you don't shoot the Ruger alot or just don't enjoy it anymore, it might be a good trade.

I reload and have everything I need to load up .45ACP in stock right now, so ammo availability is not a problem.

The Ruger is nice, but it is painful to shoot. I don't shoot it very often as a result. I could download the rounds but then what would be the point? I am ready to let it go for another good gun. I won't sell it outright, but only trade it. I would probably meet up with the guy so we can shoot what we would be getting in the trade. Full disclosure and all.

i have shot a few Sigs in the past. very well made pistols. i have an Astra A100 in 9mm which is a Spanish made pistol made very similiar to the Sig P228. very solid and well made pistol. Sig has an excellent reputation for making quality firearms, but they are not cheap or cheaply made.

Oh good Lord! I have an Astra 44 mag that I all but forgot about until you mentioned the name! Maybe I could toss that in on the trade LOL!

I am not a fan of the Astra...... at least not the one I have. I think I paid $40 for it.

i think that's one of the older Astras. they use to make revolvers as well. mine was made in about the late 1990's IIRC.

That is around when I got mine, I think mine was made in the '70's? It looks like a S&W Dirty Harry knock-off. As I remember it is missing a screw or has a broken screw. I should take it out and see. Maybe tomorrow. I am going to a Memorial Day barbecue at the range tomorrow, maybe I'll throw it in the truck when I go.
