    Two 357s: I want to trade one in

    I have 2 Snubby 357s. I love my Taurus 605.

    I am seriously considering trading my Ruger SP101, for a used Kahr PM40.

    I have a Glock 23 and 27, already.

    What would you do? How much in trade should I expect to get for my Ruger?

    My SP101 would be the very last gun I would ever get rid of.
    It is in my opinion the perfect compact 357.

    And for a "used" PM40?! Are you drinking? lol I'm kidding.

    Not really.


    Don't do it.

    Now the Taurus.... maybe.

    A good sp101 will retail for about 385.00.(320.00 trade value) ...The Used Kahr will retail for about 425.00 Polymer fram 40 cal? YIKES PAIN.....I have an MK40 Elite stainless and it make me sore to shoot it. KEEP the Ruger, trade the Taurus You should get about 255.00-275.00 for the Taurus.
    Maybe a cw45 might be better, or a smaller 3 inch 1911 style gun.

    I agree. Keep the Ruger SP101. Ditch a Taurus if you must go for a Kahr, but also the 45 might be better than 40. For some reason them 40's seem to have a quite snappy recoil to them. Just like .380 is bit more snappy than 9mm.

    Something strange about that.

    IMHO, rethink. A 357 for a 40 ain't great. A Kahr (to me) ain't great. Slim is great, but Kahr doesn't make great slim. They just make guns that sometimes function. If you get a good one, you'll be a Kahr fan, and good for you. There are plenty of them (Kahr fans). There's a lot of Carolina fans, but that don't make it right. If you don't get a shooter, well you end up like me. And why is this one being sold?

    Good luck.
