Need your expert opinion on a potential trade

I'm looking at trading my SA 1911 RO compact 9 for a Kimber Pro Crimson Carry II in .45 and going to cost me $150.00 cash. Both are used but don't look like it.

Is this an ok deal?

If it makes you happy, it's a great deal. If you're looking at the monetary aspect, then it may require additional evaluation. There is nothing special about either one, so it boils down to which one you prefer to own.

The guns are about equal in retail price new. Except for the Laser Grips on the Crimson Carry. Their $250 and up new. So, with both guns being equal you could look at it as getting laser grips for $150.

I just looked at a Compact RO on gun broker brand new 749.00 The Ultra Carry II in .45 would go for a little more depending on sights and of course w/ laser I would say do it if you like lasers. I have an Ultra Carry II w/night sites that I love. So personally I would say h___ yea!

Thanks, Tom.

I told them to put the deal together and I'd be in to get it and pick up my other two consignments. They've been there 60 days so I'm going to bring them home, too.

This is my first .45 so I'm a bit excited.

Sight unseen sounds like a pretty decent trade IMO.
