Hello all. This may seem a bit out of the ordinary but I am trying to get an idea of the trade value of a Ruger Redhawk Hunter model with a 1989 production date. I guess a little back story would help so here goes. A friend of mine who I used to do a lot of work for many years ago, and who was always very generous to me, Called me up the other day and while talking he mentioned a need for a CCW. He asked if I had anything to trade. Now I am the type that rarely trades and almost never sells a gun once in my possession, but this man has done a lot for me over the years, so long story short I ended up trading him my mint S&W 10-7 snubby and lots of accessories for the Redhawk. My issue is that I am not a bear hunter so the Redhawk is way more gun than I will ever need. I am more of a sub-compact to standard duty size kinda man. Something that is functional on a daily basis. I don't have much experience with Rugers but I love the looks of their revolver line and the new LC9 and such are way cool too. My Issue is that when I went to my local gun store to see what kind of value they would put on the Redhawk toward trade on a more practical gun, the owner stated that the last Redhawk he had he could only get $350 out of it. That was shocking to me. If he can only get $350 he sure isn't going to offer me much so I walked. My question is what do you guys think the average trade value of a Redhawk in good condition is? Is it practical to want to trade it even for say a Glock 17/26 or a LC9, or even carbine like a Marlin camp 9, or does this gun have low resale value like a Jaguar that just drove off the showroom floor? Again I don't hate the Redhawk, it's just not suited for my lifestyle so please don't think I am bad mouthing it in any way. I think it is a very well built and good looking gun, I just don't find myself in need of defending myself from rogue elk on a regular basis. Any information or educational commentary is welcomed and appreciated even if it isn't directly related to my question, I am always open to getting a free education. Thanks in advance.
