I have a Remington 700pLTR that i have for sale or trade locally. I have a guy who is offering me a Beretta 92fs in fair- good condition and a S&W 686 no dash is great condition. Is this a good/fair trade?

Selling the Beretta was my first thought. No scope or rings included. Just the picatanny base and the side saddle

Do you know this person??? Are the handgun without history?? I'd be careful about taking handguns in trade. If they turn out to be hot, your at least looking at receiving stolen goods. You loose everything. Because they are firearms, you'll never be able to purchase one again if the DA pursues you further. I'd be very wary.

I hve no reason to believe these guns are hot. Ive had multiple conversations with this guy and he has shared way more info than a criminal would. Plus there will be a bill of sale

Bill of sale or not, you took possession. As long as your state allows the private sale of handguns, and you are 100% sure you are safe have at it. Check the Berretta for peaning on the frame between the slide and frame, Half way down from the muzzle. If you see marks, walk away.

Thank you. Peaning?

That is a compact Beretta although I don't know their numbering system. If it's decent, it's worth more than the full size.

If you are really nervous after meeting the seller, you could ask to run this through an FFL. Of course, that won't tell you if the firearms are stolen; for that, you would have to enlist the local police department for an investigation. If i was the seller, i wouldn't be up for that.

IMO, do the trade, sell the beretta for a nice profit in the current market, and enjoy the S&W.

Check the barrel before you make the trade. Check out the 686 as well.

I will definitely be going over every inch of them. Im going to field strip the 92 and check the spring, guide rod, barrel and frame. Then gonna check the barrel, lock up, and finish on the 686

There is a sticky here somewhere about buying a used revolver, pretty good on what should wiggle and what should not.
