My buddy wants to swap me a pristine S&w 357 for my 92 f
I can't remember the model
Number but it's a small frame 5 shot revolver in stainless. He purchased it back in the 90's at some point and never really used it. My 92f has about 500 rounds through it and some minor cosmetic blems and will come with several magazines (like 6 or 8 if I can find them all)

Look it over and if u like it then its a good deal its up to you money. Value maby a good deal. Its up to you if you want a 357 or the 9 mill. I think everone needs all the guns they can get there hands on ;)

J frame smiths are pretty common and not too expensive, i wouldnt do the trade and i am a big s&w revolver fan. If it was a model 66,19,686,586,28,627 or 27 than i would do it in a heartbeat.

Depends on the model Smith.

Depends on the model Smith.

+1, a 92 with all those mags in a great keep though.

Depends on your own inventory. I think 5 or 6 magazines (as long as they're not Pro Mags) would put the value of the 92 ahead of the Smith. From what I've seen in the used gun cases the $$$ value of the S&W J frame & 92 by themselves are fairly close.

Remember to read QBG's Revolver checkout procedure before inspecting said Smith.

I'd say the trade value also depends how the rest of your stable is comprised. If it's semi-auto heavy, then that may offset any monetary differences.

Just based on the fact that we're talking about a small-frame revolver, I'd probably pass. Of course, since we don't have a model number, that response is nothing short of a shot in the dark.

At 5 shots, it's definitely a J-frame. 90's vintage puts it prelock and after the pinned barrel S&Ws. Model 640 hammerless was popular in the 90's.

I'd keep the 92f
