Default Gun trade delima......

Im stuck on a fence here and need some input form you guys.

Ive been looking for a Winchester 101 (20g. o/u) for a while to go with my 12g. 101.
I also have a Ruger Red label 28g. o/u with gold stamps on it.

Found a guy with a Winchester 101 but he wants to trade for the Ruger Red label.

What would you guys do here......very tough decision.

If you have to question it, it's not the right deal for you.

You may want to give this guy a call in Houston. Les Freer guns 713 467 3016. Freergunshop.com . Les and his dad have been an authorized Winchester dealer for over 50 years. They deal and work on primarily Older browning’s and Winchester. Also check out collector firearms in Houston. They have a good website.

Ill call them. I found one dealer in Texas with a couple. Just hard for me to pay almost $2k for the 20g. when I bought my nearly mint 12g. 101 for around $1k.

Another vote for your decision to keep that nice 28 gauge, good luck with your search for the 101 in 20 gauge.

Get you a set of Briley tubes for your 12ga they a like 700.00 bucks.
I have a set of like new 28ga tubes made for a Winchester 101 or any 28Ē barrel over /under in classified for 500.00 with extra chokes. And 410 tubes that fits 20ga but not everyone understands the concept.

Going to go against the grain. Iím not a fan of odd gauge shotguns (16/28 gauge). If itís a clean 101 20 gauge I make that trade today and twice on Sunday.

Are you talking chokes? Iím talking gauge tubes. To make a 28ga out of a 12ga or 20ga out of 12ga or even 410

Definitely make the trade. A serious Winchester collector will always pay more than someone who is into Rugers. Definitely more so, when you are talking 101s.
