Is this a fair trade as far as trade value goes?

Have a stock etha with all original packaging for a pm7 with upgraded board and bolt. Would I lose trade value on this or gain? It just seems like to me that it wouldn't be worth the same being six year old. He is also adding $100

depends on the upgrades to the PM7 but I'd say even with hte $100 it's a net lose in trade value. The Etha is newer and the older PM and DM guns are dropping like rocks when it comes to trade value which personally I don't mind. Just means I can pick up a smooth shooting DM4-7 for next to nothing.

Used Etha is around the >350 mark.. Pm7 would be 250.. If it were UL framed and all prettied up I'd go for it..

i hate assigned values for a gun. who cares if monetarily you'd gain or loose value. do you not like your etha? would you be happier with a PM7?

in a trade, it doesn't matter how much money you could make, all that matters if you are happy with the trade. so what if a trade could be one sided. as long as you are happy with what you get, then who cares?

so trade if you want a PM7, or don't.

Well thank you for your opinion but I care about the monetary gain. I do not shoot the etha and have it laying around so I figure I could use it to trade up. So trade value is important to me. Again thank you for your opinion but it in no way answered my question or was helpful.

If it is a gun you want and you are trading a gun you don't want it is a win.

ask for an opinion, get one. i think you are going to loose if you keep chasing "monetary value" of trades. i do not understand why someone will trade for something they don't like, only because its a higher perceived value. trade because you don't want what you have and you want what someone else has. its that simple, IMHO.
