    Hey, do you guys think a new unfired m&p40 is worth a new 85f. Been debating the trade. But not sure what to do

    The 85F is more valuable than the M&P 40,,,

    The 85F is more valuable than the M&P 40,,,
    At least it is if you go by the original purchase price.

    New M&P's run in the vicinity of $450.00,,,
    New Model 85's run in the vicinity of $650.00,,,
    If I didn't want the Beretta any more I would sell it,,,
    Then use the cash to buy the lesser priced M&P plus lots of ammo.

    The other thing to consider is that Beretta discontinued the sales of entire Cheetah line,,,
    At that time the perceived value of Models 84, 85, & 87 jumped quite a bit.

    If I had an M&P and found someone who would trade straight across for a Beretta 85,,,
    I would trade in a heartbeat then sell the Beretta for cash,,,
    Then use some of the cash to buy another M&P,,,
    And pocket the difference.

    From a utility perspective, the M&P is the superior firearm. From a quality and class perspective, the Beretta is more desirable. I'd trade my M&Pc for a NIB 85F any day of the week. Utility is easy to find, quality in form, function and design, a bit more elusive.
