    minding my own business like I always do I was approached at work and one of my co-workers offered me his Dan Wesson .45 and a SKS rifle thingy for my G36. I kicked that offer to the curb! I laughed so hard I'm still laughing.

    Second offer was an online offer. A compact M&P .45 for my G32(.357 Sig).

    I BRIEFLY thought of that offer before I had what alcoholics call a moment of clarity, and decided no. I'm sure the M&P is a "good gun" and all that, but I just don't know how trust worthy it would hold up of the years. Naw, I decided, give me a Glock or just give me a dam branch off a tree rather than anything eles.

    Glocks are good pistols, but being a 1911 guy, I'd have jumped on that DW 1911 in a heartbeat.

    I agree with the m&p trade. I like m&p but, like you said, can it hold up through the long haul? With the glock you know what your getting. The 1911 im not familiar with, although i hear great things about colt.

    This is the whole problem I have with Glock "fanboys." Are you SERIOUS?!?!?!?!?! You would turn down a freakin DW 1911 to keep a GLOCK?!?!?! REALLY!?!?!?! Holy crap!

    Please, point me in the direction of this goober that offered you that. I have a $500 XD I would GLADLY part with for a $1200 DW 1911.....

    There is no way, that a DW 1911 is worth over 1200.00 USD! From the research I've done, DW is the 1911 that people buy when they can't afford a Rock Island 1911. and as far as that SKS, firewood or trade bait is all I see out of that.

    Youre not serious are you?

    CZ-USA -> Dan Wesson products

    Care to click on any of those and tell me what the prices are? Maybe it wasnt a DW that you were offered?

    Let me call him at home and we'll make sure what the offer was again. brb

    yup Dan Wesson, he wasn't sure of the model but DW for sure. Answer is still no. A G36 is hard to come by and I'm in no hurry to get rid of it.

    Only a compact HK in .357 Sig might be able to sway me.

    I agree, I'd jump on the Dan Wesson and SKS trade.

    A Dan Wesson 1911 AND an SKS?

    Let's see... A DW 1911=$1000 or more
    Add another $300 or more depending on the type of sks.
    Equals you're freaking loco!!!!

    Dan Wessons are some of the most sought after 1911's on the market!

    Im glad im not the only 1 here confused and jealous. I mean I understand glocks are decent but some people are some die hard fans not gun loving collecters. SMH... These are weapons not sports teams

    Wow, only thing you should be laughing at is the fact that some idiot offered you easily a 1000-1300 trade for a 600.00 gun and you were too arrogant to realize it :rolleyes: *cough* fanboys *cough* :p But in the end it was your choice so i can respect that, to each their own. :cool:

    Wait a minute

    If the DW is less than a rock island armory than no deal!! Why would this dude want a G36 and he supposedly own a 1200 dollar gun? he must know something we dont. Could it be that the G36 is a rare model? if so, i wouldnt trade it, regardless what kind of 1911 it was:rolleyes:

    is the DW & SKS hot?...thats the only reason,i wouldnt trade;)

    i have seen used glock 36's go for less than 400.00...not that rare:confused:

    i could have purchased a Glock 30 over the weekend for 150.00 bucks from a co-worker,but being i dont know them that well & i didnt have a pair of gloves on hand:D i passed.

    Research is your friend;)
    http://www.cz-usa.com/products/by-brand/dan-wesson/
    Click on all those DW 1911 links and look at the prices.

    Now look at this link and examine the price of Rock Island Armory 1911's
    Rock Island Armory for Sale at BudsGunShop
    OP stated and i quote
    So after research, it would show that Rock Island Armory 1911's are what folks buy when they can't afford a Dan Wesson 1911. That statement that the OP made, in my mind, stripped him of any credibility he might have had. Thats just your typical uneducated, arrogant fan boy type statement right there :rolleyes: and that is why so many are speaking out against him right now. It is what it is, don't take it personal:cool:

    Where did you do this research? Dan Wesson makes a FINE 1911 and you could have sold that SKS for a few hundred $$ and made a great deal even better. I would have thrown the Glock at him and taken the DW off his hand so fast he'd still be wondering what happened. :D
