    Your thoughts on trade

    I have a xdm 45 4.5"

    I have someone wanting to trade it for both his glock 31 and xd 40 compact.

    Assuming these are in good condition sound like a good trade?

    Sounded ok to me and the ability to move from .357 sig to .40 to 9mm sounds promising

    Your thoughts?.

    G31

    The G31 although fun to shoot in my area (MI) 357 sig ammo is $30 + a box of 50 if you can find it so keep that in mind. I have sold both my Glock 31 and Glock 22 and now have only 9mm and 45 acp

    Was really thinking 9mm conversion for range and .40 or .357 for a car gun

    I was actually looking to trade mine for a 45 or 9 that I could carry more and use at range cheaper

    My primary carry is and xds but variety is the spice of life

    If the Glock and SD .40 are in good condition, looks like a winner of a deal. Hard to pass a 2 for 1 deal.

    Why are they so motivated? That is not a good deal for them, and I would be suspect unless they were excellent friends. The old "Too good to be true?" at work here?

    I agree with Rock and Glock. It's such a lopsided deal in your favor, I feel like there is something that he is not telling you.

    Are these pistols owned by someone you know very well?
    make sure they are LEGALLY owned by them, then make the deal.
    I would do it.

    If they're in equal condition; DO IT! However, if equal condition, it DOES sound too good to be true!

    Is he the original owner? If so I would check them out and if everything was ok I would trade.

    Sounds awfully iffy to me. I love my Glock 31, and don't mind paying for the ammo. In fact, it is now easier to find 357 SIG ammo than 9mm.

    But 2 for 1? That's a bit spooky.
