    You always lose on a shop trade.

    I looked at an M1 Garand at a local gunshop. it looked like a CMP rack grade, and they wanted $900 for it :mamoru:. i doubt the shop bought it from the previous owner for $150.

    You deserve to lose your butt trading a nice Kimber for a rack Glock.
    Can you put the Kimber on consignment instead?

    Just sell it privately. Then offer them cash for their gun. Some gun stores have a trade in price and then they have a cash price which is usually lower

    Here is a tip when going to a gun shop. They will usually give you 60% of wholesale in a trade or buy out if it's in excellent shape.

    There is a gun store around here that's horrible at trades as well. Wants to screw you out of money really nice.

    They wouldn't even lower the price of a Glock there when I told them I was just going to go to the store down the street to buy it :ugh: I think taking less of your normal profit is better than not selling a gun at all.

    I wanted to trade my kimber classic custom straight up for a used 226 that had a good amount of holster wear. The tag on the Sig said $450, they told me that they would take my gun and $80. I laughed at them and left.
