    So I have a S&W 629 PS for sale and everyone seems to be cash poor these days....Trade so far have been an M&P 9 2.0 with and RMR, SA V-10 but he has no cash now he is thinking STI Guardian that he sent in for Nite sight and the Factory completely Rebuilt it to New, Factory mag and 2 26 round mags.....I know Nothing about STI or the 2011.....Black frame and Stainless Brushed or Polished Slide.


    Then it is in 9MM and I just sold the only 9MM I would trust and my stash of ammo.

    Any Advise?

    Unless you want a 2011, wait longer... Do you really need to get rid of it right now? Trading generally seems to be a waiting game. If you can wait long enough and know what you want, someone probably has it and wants what you have.

    Did you post the Smith 629 in the classifieds? Many posts here sell rather quickly.

    Take some good photos, Don’t hide the flaws, And see what bites.

    Are you asking too high of a price?

    I posted it locally and mentioned I had it to someone wanting to buy some ProTech Godfathers I have.....He has stuff that he can't sell either Belgium FN HP that where never imported.....Aluminum frame models made for the Police or something along those lines....I know nothing about HP either.

    Did you sell the Protechs? I have a couple of Godsons but not the larger Godfather.

    I would love to have a FN hi-power for historical sake. Aluminum models are extremely rare in the US. Mainly existed in Europe. The main side arm for the Belgian gendarmerie. Problem with Hi-powers is parts break easily. 10,000-20,000 rounds and they fall apart. The 1911 by comparison was a much better built firearm in its durability. Hi-Powers are fetching a pretty penny on GB. That would be the best bet.

    Also post your 629 here in the classifieds. It won’t hurt or cost you.

    What’s the asking price for the HP?

    Out of line, perhaps.
    But what is this fairly recent confusion I see about 'sell' vs 'sale' ?
    Two different words?

    Not directed at the OP at all, but I'd imagine it's a reference to the asking price. Or dumbassery. One of the two.

    I wouldn’t get back into a caliber you just got out of.

    Seems like this is a trade that would cost you money.

    Kings Firearms Online will make a cash offer for your gun. The market for used firearms is hot right now.

    You just have to fill out a short form describing it and attach a couple pics. Same as if you posted it here. Then decide if you like the offer or not.

    Also, there is Gunbroker.

    Trade for the STI. Then drive to my house and I will give you $800 cash for it.

    and I thought maybe I was the only person who was a little annoyed as to the change in the use of these 2 words. I thought maybe it was based on my age, and maybe it is. LOL

    It’s really just our civilization collapsing. Pay no attention.

    The alloy frame P35s are great carry guns FWIW.
