    Would this be a good trade?

    Got a guy who has a 1969 circa Winchester 94 saddle ring carbine in 44mag in very good condition. He is interested in even trade on my Remington 11-87 Premier LNIB 20 gauge. Not sure what a Winchester like the 1969 is going for? I know that a Remington 11-87 Premier 20 gauge like mine (except it had bluing wear and no box). Went for $900.00 last week on GB. My Remington has the original box and all factory paperwork and factory accessories and bluing is excellent. Appreciate any guidance or thoughts.

    Which one do you want? Or which will be used..... IMO dollar wise not a good trade but a gun that sits in the closet vs one that you will actually use - go with the one you will shoot. 6 vs 1/2 dozen.
    I like it. I love it. Can't get enough of it.

    Merlin nailed it. Your shotgun is probably slightly more valuable, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Which one is more valuable/useful to you and do you already own something that could take the place of either.

    No. Not a good trade IMO. If it was a pre-'64 M94 maybe. (depending on condition) but not for a post '64. I never really cared for Winchesters as they looked like their guts are hanging out when you work the lever, hahaha. Then you have to deal with top ejection. Again, this is just my opinion.

    16" barrel winchester? Winchester made a bunch of those trappers back in 69/70 I've got a like new one in 30-30 they will bring 650-700 to 900 if you find the right buyer, just might want to keep in mind if you use it a lot and carry it like most folks with hand around receiver the plating on the receiver will wear off, the post 64 guns are famous for that, I've also got an old rusty one that gets used. I'm keeping my 1100's is yours one of the engraved ones?

    Trades like any other transaction are good as long as both parties are happy.

    An old horse trader told me years ago " A good deal is when both parties walk away thinking they screwed the other guy " .

    I wouldn't. If ya don't want that 11-87, sell it and go shopping.
