    A fair trade is when both parties are satisfied.I once traded a good 870 for abeat up old flint 50,my son thought I was nuts but I could find an 870 in every corner of the house.Now I can find an old flint 50 in one.

    +1 for what "gru556" said.

    If both parties are happy, it's a good trade.

    :cool:

    I agree on the far trade thing and w/ that said. I am not a fan of armi sport esp. there quality. So now that you know were i stand the 50-56 are problematice when it comes to getting them to feed properly. So expect to spend a lot of time w/ it. if you do the trade for it check here and other boards to see what guys had to do to get them to feed properly.:banghead:

    I think that it would only end up being a "fair trade" if both parties were able to have the right to reject the deal based on a complete inspection and test firing.
    Would anyone buy a used car without a test drive or having it inspected by a mechanic?
    That's the only way to insure that everything about each gun was divulged.
    If one or both parties wants to give up that right, then that's up to each based on his informed consent of choosing to ignore "buyer beware".
    But if one party doesn't want to give up that right, then he would be playing it safe and protecting his initial investment.
    At least these terms would provide some insurance that both parties are completely satisfied before the deal is finalized.
    These terms would be to help prevent either party from being stuck with an unfair trade.
    Otherwise it's an "as is" deal, and one of the parties could be totally out of luck and dissatisfied in the end.

    Articap - I had just written a note that said the same thing and saw that you had beat me to it, but said it better. Well done, sir.

    Eric F - read what he said very carefully.

    Yes I agree perhaps We could ship agreements then ship guns with ammo haave a set time to agree or disagree based on exames and shootings and either keep or send back. A well thought plan.

    Thanks.
