Default Trade H&K USP Tactical 45 for a Kimber 1911?

Just would like your opinion on what you think I should trade for a very clean and well taken care of H&K USP Tactical? I am being offered a Kimber ultra carry. Though I like the 1 Kimber I have shot, I feel the ultra is too small for me and definitely not an even trade. What do you all think is a good trade for my H&K USP Tactical?

The kimber would not be a good trade in my opinion. The value of the hk far outweighs that of the kimber. You may see if anyone might be willing to trade a pistol and pay the difference in cash or trade two pistols. But finding a single pistol of equal value will be difficult. That's a pretty unusual piece with quite a price tag. You might think about one of the custom built 1911s.

EXPENDABLE

What do you want it for ? Range gun or a CC gun? The ultra carry is a great conceal carry firearm.. Would I like to go to the range and put hundreds of rounds through it,, Uhh no!

What model ultra carry is it ? Black ? Stainless ? Custom? And how much do you have into the H&K ? I myself would trade a H&K for a kimber any day of the week if they were even in value. But I am kind of partial to Kimber firearms

If its the model 23 H&K then its value far exceeds the kimber though. Can you get him to toss in some cash ? Like 1K bucks

I wouldnt make the trade. The kimber ultra carry's can be a chore to use and maintain. 3 inch 1911's are not the most reliable 1911.

Thank you all for your thoughts. After thinking about it I have never seen another USP Tactical or even heard of anyone else seeing one in person. I think I would regret trading or selling it as it is my first and one firearm. So now I must decide on a first 1911 and first Glock to purchase. Suggestions?

If your looking for 1911s kimber is a great gun to look at but i would go for a full size. I have one and enjoy it alot and they are usually right about 1k

For 1911 I would definitely recommend kimber or Springfield. Both are strong names in the industry with very few dissatisfied customers. Again, I agree on the full size, its a much more enjoyable platform to shoot. Your feeling the weapon as it was intended, it has a balance and a feel seldom matched in other types of pistol. I'm sure you will enjoy a 1911 immensely.

I'll not speak of glocks. They're good for what they were intended for.

Best of luck and hope you enjoy the beginnings of your own collection.
