Default Revolver trade??

My friends wife wanted my Ruger MarkIII 22 w/red dot sight for her S&W 357 mag.(mod 581-2) w/4 boxes of ammo. Even trade! She wanted something easier to shoot. So I did it, but I know nothing about revolvers!! So I'm asking you guys did I do good or not? Thanks

Why do we always get asked "after the fact"

Horrible trade, I'll take it off your hands for $50. Kidding obviously, great job my friend

Take that 581 and run away! You made an outstanding trade as long as both parties are happy. The Smith is worth much more than the Mk III.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

My LGS has many Mark IIIs in stock. I would load up on Rugers and make that trade all day long and twice on Sunday. I'd say almost a 2:1 value trade and maybe more if those ammo boxes were 50 packs

Thanks for the input. She and I are both happy with the trade. Luckily I had 2 of those Rugers.
