You will probably never regret the exchange.

A couple of years ago I found a beautiful NIB 2nd generation Colt Single Action Army with pre ban Ivory grips. it too was a bit out of my price range. One night, I was sitting on the patio sipping a cold one when a thought came to mind, Ive got 6 deer guns and really only shoot 2 of them, so I sold a couple of them, and bingo, I had that Colt. I've never regretted it especially since the value of the Colt has gone up a lot more than the 2 rifles I sold


I might do that. keep the 2 colts the Model 41 and the kimber. sell the contender the GP 100 and one or 2 of the .22's. hummm

\

Now youre cooking, that Model 70 will only gain in value and the Ruger and the 22s will remain stale value wise, unless theyre Colts also.

If that gp100 is a stainless 357 with 4" or less, let's talk...

I didn't say he was wrong for selling one just stated I never have, even myself I find it odd I have never sold one. I did trade a smith and Wesson .22 in because I hated it. But never sold one, every time I think about it regret sets in.... OCD I guess

I personally have no issues or regrets trading or selling a gun I've purchased and didn't like, but Ive always replaced the sold ones with something of better quality and value.

Have you considered building a rifle? I have alot of rifles but the one I take the most pride in is a Mauser that a friend helped me build. Really, you can do most of the work yourself. Only part I paid to have done was the drill & tap for the scope mounts, but my buddy had the blueing tanks and a lathe to set the headspacing, so I saved a few bucks there. Just had Douglas deep chamber one of their barrels for 7x57mm (wanted a Mauser rifle in a Mauser chambering)and put a Winchester Featherweight contour on it. Used a semi inletted Boyds JRS stock with a XX wood upgrade and sanded the heck out of it to trim it up and add a slight palm swell to the grip. My buddy is really good at stock fitting and he helped me with a few things here and there so now it points like a fitted shotgun. I just love that rifle.

The .257 Roberts is a great cartridge for a Mauser action as the case is so similar to the 7x57 and 8x57mm cartridges. No feeding issues to worry about. I did one in 25-06 too, no feeding problems in that one but sometimes they can require a little work.

I'm going to do some more research. Building a rifle sounds pretty cool.

Grandpa gave me a 8mm Mauser years ago. Always told me to keep it for a build. Now you have my wheels turning. Grandpa is a hell of a carpenter and has built multiple rifles and muzzle loaders. I probably should take advantage of that knowledge while I can.

It's a very rewarding project but only if you take your time and cut no corners. On my first one I rushed the job and it came out looking very mediocre. Every time I'd look at it I was embarrassed that I didn't take the time to do a meticulous job of polishing out all of the steel before the blueing process, and when I forged the bolt handle it came out looking......like a guys first attempt at a sporter job. I ended up calling it a coyote rifle and spray painted it. I have one more action ('03-A3) that I want to do but I can't decide which way I want to go with it.

My problem with pretty guns is I am hard on them. I've got a Rem 700 BDL in .220 swift that I am for the most part scared to get out because it's so nice.

Yeah, but just think of the memories you'll have of building a custom Mauser sporter with your grandpa. :thumbsup:
