Default Baby desert eagle for RIA officers 1911??

Alright I have a polymer baby eagle II .40 and was offered a Rock Island officers 1911 .45 with a box of ammo and bianchi holster. Also the 1911 front sight is gone. Would this be a good trade, I do see a bit of value difference here. What y'all think?

What does the Baby Eagle sell for new? RIAs are not expensive.

They're going for 500-600 these days, the baby eagle only has 500 rounds thru and the 1911 has around 200

That sounds like a bad deal for you. I would be asking for $150 with his gun and holster at a minimum.

Eye of beholder man.

Monetary value only holds true to what one is willing to pay based on personal interest.

I wouldn't take anything Mag Research for free, except the 380 and then I'd hate it like everything else DAO and toss it immediately, like all else it's kind which I've made grievous mistakes in trying.

However anything 1911 I covet like a Treky loser does a Photon Phaser from episode 76 STG5. (Okay, so I just made up all of that, but it serves a purpose and makes its point.)

So were I you I'd jump at the chance. Well, I'd never have the Eagle in the first place, but that doesn't float well in scenario. Lol

I got a deal that I cold not pass up, I'm not too fond of it either but I don't want to give up a great gun for less than its worth plus the 1911 will need over $100 in work

I'm not a sight user but I agree, it would bother me not having it nonetheless...

It's more of an aesthetic to me, it would be a carry gun so no real need

Exactly, the same for me.
