I might be looking to trade a 227 RX that has been registered with Sig but is unfired and still has factory grease all over the internals. I’m assuming a trade in value of between $500-600, does that seem about right to you? Too high, too low? I’ve never traded a pistol before so not sure how much of a discount the LGS would be looking to get. I just want to be prepared so that I’m not shocked when they name a value. Also want to know when they low ball too much and I should just hold onto it. My 1st thought is any less than 500 and I’ll keep it.

plan to take a beating on any trades with a lgs.

sell it here in the classifieds.

Depends on the store. I would say you would be lucky to get that much for it. Selling it outright is by far the way to go for best value.

I recently got an RX slide for my 226s and they aren't cheap. The 227 plus that slide should get you much more I would think. Have you tried to sell it outright? Definitely worth a shot unless I am misunderstanding something here.

It all depends on what you are buying and what you are willing to take. Start high, you can always come down.

I think you'd be better off putting it up for sale here if you are comfortable with that. Selling it yourself almost always is better than trading it at a gun shop.

A gun store needs to make a profit to stay in business. Typically you'll get about 60% of market value for it. The trade value would also be based on what you purchase the other pistol for. If the dealer is getting full price for it, they may be willing to give you more on your trade. It just depends on the numbers for the gun shop. Your pistol isn't a high demand item so pricing will reflect that as well.
