    This ought to be interesting; I haven't seen a posting like this before. Hopefully Tamara, WildAlaska and some others will chime in.

    I bought a Ruger MK512 from a local gun shop a few years ago. Recently discovered it had manufacturing defect. Ruger is shipping a replacement with new serial number. The shop is willing to take it into stock so I don't have to register and give me credit against another item. That item will be either a Mossberg or Remington HD model.

    I want to make sure I am fair to the dealer for his consideration. Other dealers in the area won't do the same deal.

    From the dealer's perspective, what would be a fair trade assuming Ruger ships back 1) a MKII exact replacement for my blued MK512, 2) a MKII in stainless, 3) a MKIII equivalent? I will be looking at Remington 870 18" 7 shot, Mossberg 500 in either 18.5" and 6 shot or 20 inch and 8 shot or Mossberg 590 20" 9 shot.
