Question Trade a Smith JFrame 360PD Scandium for a Ruger LCRx 38+p 3" barrel?

Hello all:

I probably should not even post this but I like to keep the conversation going and interesting.

Please do not flame me unless or until you hear me out.

I purchased a JFrame 357 Model 360PD Scandium back in the Summer for $399 out the door at my local pawn emporium. It was retailed on the Smith web page for $1015 back in the Summer. I have had it back to Smith for some minor repairs and adjustments--no big deal. I also had to have the HiViz factory sight replaced, but that is another story in itself.

Fast forward: I have not been able to shoot it until yesterday. My index finger finger nail had grown out and it tore it off down into the quick. I know it is not the gun's fault!!! This was only with 148 grain wadcutter 38 specials. Trigger is atrocious in double action.

Comparison to my Ruger LCR 357 trigger wise--there is no comparison in double action. The Ruger is far superior hands down. Now I "have had a cravin' flung on me" about the new Ruger, LCRx, 3" barrel, 38 +p.

I know what the little Smith cost and will be worth in the future if not already. I have a mind to go and swap the Smith JFrame for the LCRx. But I know I will take a beating for sure. Just like the used car salesman said to me one time. "I will trade with you just like you don't have a trade in!!!"

Please do not flame me too badly over this. If possible could I get some objective opinions about keeping one and getting the other one. The Smith web page is not a good place to have this discussion possibly.

Be kind and gentle.

That is all!

Instead of a trade (where you will lose value), why not place it in the Forum classified section? You might make a bit more, then use that $ on the Ruger and ammo.

+1 on that; I'd sell the one and then buy the other. It would probably be worth a couple hundred beans to do it that way.

Exclamation Rhetorician Response and Question

Hello A 10,

And why would you not make the trade may I in all courtesy ask?

This is exactly the kind of feedback that I wanted when I started the thread.

For those who might come along to this post, I would offer a couple of caveats:

One, I really am trying to like my Smiths. I just got my authentication letter back on an early 5 screw hand eject model.

Second, I got a "real steal" when I bought this little J Frame.

Third, it shoots way low with the HiVez factory sights and I am going to have to burn through hundred's of rounds of target ammo to learn to shoot it.

Fourth, the trigger, compared to the Ruger LCR, is simply atrocious.

But on the other hand:

One, after all it is a Smith.

Two, as cheaply as I bought it the price will only go up.

Three, it is a very good investment

Four, it is a novelty. How many can say they have a Smith, J
Frame, 357, that weighs only 12 oz?

Five, everyone needs one J Frame in the stable.

Six, it is a great carry piece.

Seven, I just know I will be sick if I sell it or trade it.

Go figure!! Decisions!! Decisions!!

Just thinking out loud I suppose??

"That is all!" (for now).

Thoughts?

If you're talking a straight up trade on a new LCR, I'd make the trade. If you're talking about a little boot from you, do what others have said; sell it on the forum here and by the LCR outright.
