Trade ?

Just throwing this out there for any opinions. I'm considering maybe trying a trade of my SS Raptor Pro 11 for an SIS Ultra with no rail or maybe a Pro 4" again no rail. Thoughts? It would be an EDC for me like the Raptor.

Hmmm... Raptor is nice but you know how I feel about the SIS, especially the Ultra.

Yah thanks thats how I feel. I saw this Raptor and had to have it and being an impulse buyer "bingo" I'm bringing it home. Do trades ever happen on gunbroker or gunsamerica that you know of say if I saw one for sale?

I have not seen anyone on GB trading, not sure if they do. I am sure someone on here knows where to do some trading.

Snake, you always mention how much you love the Raptor. I would look to sell something else. The price of the Raptor keeps going up and you'll probably regret selling yours.

Snake, you don't have to worry about a SIS Ultra or Pro having a rail, was never made. The SIS Custom RL only one made with a rail. For EDC the SIS Ultra could of course be used but it is a little heavier because it is all stainless steel. Four models:
SIS Ultra
SIS Pro
SIS Custom
SIS Custom RL

Cool What The Over.....?

Keep the Raptor, Dude!! The SIS is a very nice pistol, but it falls just a few points lower than any Raptor on the "Cool-O-Meter" scale!!

Personally, I like all things Raptor!! But that's just me! YMMV

I agree with Lineman, I love my SIS and Stainless Raptor but I wouldn't trade a Raptor for a SIS.

I used to buy, trade, sell all the time but now that I am old I know what I want and like and only buy what I know I am 99.9% sure I am going to keep.

Thats why I asked for some opinions as you guys came up with the perfect answers and reason for me to keep the Raptor. I've wanted this for quite sometime also. Thanks to "you'se guys" I appreciate your input and experience, John
