Default Fair Trade ?

I would like some opinions from you guys. I have been wanting a Winchester Model 9422M XTR for some time now. I have a Winchester Model 70 XTR Sporter Magnum in 300 Win Mag cal. The gun was made in 1988. It is in excellent condition with a better grade of wood, 1X ? Do you think an even trade for a 9422M XTR in excellent condition is reasonable, or one is worth more than the other? I tend to think the 300 Win Mag should be worth more than the 22 Mag. I appreciate any comments.

Personally, I wouldn't trade a .300 win mag to a .22 mag. I think the .300 having a better grade of wood, would be a higher value. That's just speculation on my part. Maybe someone with a value book, will be along shortly to help.

You own a gun that is pressed into service by US sniper teams and you want to trade it for a plinking rifle? Please tell me my eyes are deceiving me.

Get a $180 marlin and keep your very fine, hard to replace rifle.

The 9422 and 9422M aren't made anymore, and therefore people who own them are quite proud ($$$$$) of them.

I'm looking for one myself, (actually both) but I'd never consider that kind of trade.

Thanks for the input. I agree that the 22 Mag pales in comparison to the 300 Win Mag as far as the cartridge goes. The Model 70 is an awesom rifle also. Unfortunately, people turn their noses up at the push feed Model 70. Everyone wants a pre 64 model. Locutus is correct about the prices of the discontinued 9422 & 9422M. I see them bringing $600 - $1200 NIB. Anyone know the value of a 1988 push feed Model 70 in excellent condition? I bought the gun with hopes of Elk hunting out West. Due to the economy and tapping my savings, I doubt that will happen. I have deer rifles for hunting these Missouri hills and the 300 is just way overkill. Most of my deer are taken from 30 - 100 yards, with 50 being about the medium. More input on dollar amount values would be appreciated. Thanks everyone!

I didnt read everything just the op.

Do NOT make that trade. The winchester you mentioned goes for 400-500 realistically depends on where you are. The rifle you have, in todays market would probably bring 600$ maybe more.
If you decide to trade you should get at least 100$ and the rifle. Just my opinion

If your average shot is only 100 yards or less and you have other rifles.
Heck trade the thing. Get a nice plinker that isn't around much

If I had a need for a 300 I would offer to trade my Browning BL22 which I would consider a better gun than the 9422 but I can't think of a reason to own the 300 Mag. as I am no longer physically able to hunt. Don't make the trade even, get something to boot the trade.
