    I just traded a used Beretta model 85 in good condition for a used Colt Lawman MK.5 in good condition.Do you think this was a good trade? And if not why. They both are in good shape, the colt has some pitting due to sitting in a holster but is pristine in side. The 85 was better on the outside &pristine inside.

    Both are fine guns. I think you made a good trade. At the very least, it was a lateral move. I also think it's important to own as many guns as possible during our lifetime. If you think you made a bad trade, you can look forward to buying it again down the road :neener:

    2 completely different guns with different uses. From a $ standpoint I think you did fine. If you like the 85 better then you got a good deal

    Sounds like a decent enough deal, as I have owned both (but at different times), and would truly love to have the Colt Trooper MK.V back.

    Can anyone who knows about the Lawman MK.5 let me know more about them? Were they just made in .357 mag., the frame &if they are accurate & will stand-up to repeated .357mag. loads or should I treat it like a S&W ' K ' frame. The Colt has a H.B. on it. Did they stop making them? Thanks for any information on it.
