    Would you make this trade??

    I have a guy I work with and we have talked about a trade. I have a Remington Model 48 Sportsman 16 gauge I would say in 90-95% condition with 4 boxes of #4 and 1 box of slugs. He has a S&W 38 caliber Model 36 Chiefs Special in Mint condition never been fired with all the original packaging I believe the gun was new in 1972. He also has 3 boxes of shells not sure if they are range ammo or SD ammo. He also has a pretty nice leather IWB leather holster. I am throwing $50.00 cash in with my side of the deal. How does this sound to you guys?? Thanks!

    So fast it would make your head spin. I have a 12 ga sportsmans 58 that was my fathers. I wouldnt trade it, but sure as hello would any other.

    Btw, I also have a model 36 classic S&W. LOVE IT. You are getting the best of that trade

    I don't know much about shotguns, but I love revolvers and I'd have to jump at that deal.

    If you don't have a need for the shotgun, I'd sat Done Deal.

    "sweet" 16 ga. are sweet and hard to find. it won't be easy should you decide to replace that shotgun. but a vintage chiefs special doesn't come up very often either. i think i'd want the revolver. at the end of the day it's just another old remington shotgun, yawn.
    but those old Smith's have a cult following for a reason.

    With your $50 boot & both guns in fine to mint condition, you're on the plus side of this swap by ~$100. Get it done!

    I would say if you want a snub, you are getting a good one.
    It's worth $400+, and the shotgun you have is one of the best in the day autoloaders(1940's-1960's), value approximately $250-350.

    Your call.

    At 100% (meaning unfired with box and all papers ) your shotgun is worth about 300 bucks. ( Blue book gun values ) figure 75 bucks for the ammo.

    The model 36 100% with box for it goes for 635 bucks. 3 boxes of plinking 38 would add 75 bucks.
    Also note as far as value of the 36..
    Add $20 for nickel finish (disc. 2012).
    Add $20 for 3 in. barrel (disc. 2010).
    Add $158 for case colored frame (mfg. 2008-2009).
    Add 100% for early small trigger guard and grips (below ser. no. 2,500).
    Add 400% for half moon front sight.

    Now if it is the model 36 target ( adjustable rear sight ) you are talking 1,250 bucks for 100%.

    I would jump on it if I were you..

    Thanks guys for all the help. He needs to see the shotgun to make the deal. I have seen the pistol so I know what I am getting. I am not a shotgun guy at all. I have had this gun for a loooooong time and never shot it. So if he still agrees I think we will swap!! Thanks again!!

    You would have a hard time finding parts for a 1148 but not so for the S&W.
