Default Should I trade?

Ok, here's my dilemma.
A friend of mine really want's a .40 or .45 caliber polymer frame pistol.
He doesn't have much money right now so he can't just go and buy one.
He's been eyeing my Sigma .40 and wants to trade me his Springer Loaded 1911 with 3 clips of ammo, hard case and double mag pouch for my Sigma and some ammo.

Should I go for it?

You are joking right?

I'd trade a half-dozen Sigmas for a Springer Loaded...

Umm, tell me you've gone ahead and done this deal already! Any S&W auto...polymer or not for a quality 1911 is a no brainer! Do it man!

He's getting the short end of the deal for sure. The Loaded is an outstanding pistol and it's worth a bunch more than the Sigma.

My suggestion is to make the deal, but figure out a way to make it fair.

Absolutely not!

You should put him in touch with me so I can trade him my Glock for it.

Haha that's about the reaction I was expecting, but I just wanted to get a second opinion before I jumped into it, ya know.


I'll have TWO 1911's now.... the GI and the Loaded. Frickin sweet

And don't worry, I'll make it fair. He's getting all 300 rounds of my .40 ammo and a couple holsters that I know of right now... I'm going to finish bargaining with him tonight.
