Would you trade?

    I have a Mossy 930 roadblocker which I purchased used but I found a new Wilson 870 boarder patrol $879.00. Would you trade the Mossy in on the Wilson?

    How much are they giving you for the 930 towards the trade? You usually get more money selling the 930 outright then trading though.

    NO, but then again, I prefer the semi over a pump.

    In a heart beat, however, as Victoria said, you would get more for the other weapon selling it outright. A dealer is not going to give the retail value on any weapon as he has to resell it to make his money and being that is his business he needs to make something for doing that. So you sell it and make that extra and use it towards the Wilson.

    Thanks for the replies. I think I might get $300-345 for trade in value for the Mossy so I would need about 500.00 out of pocket. What do you think about $879.00 as a starting price for the Wilson. Not sure about spending an additional $500.00 as I have a mid 1960s Wingmaster with an 18 inch barrell with a 2 round extension already.

    Take your Wingmaster and built it the way you want it. It is ready to go as is but you should do the flex tab conversion since it will be a defense weapon. You can upgrade the 870 but don't go over board and you will have a more deployable defense weapon. Sell the Mossberg to fund your rebuild of the 870.
