I think people do what you've described sometimes anyway... it's just a matter of whether other users follow up on what you've requested. I've just posted stuff in there that I no longer needed & didn't feel like selling, and it was scooped up. Maybe one day there'll be something in there I need.
Oh... just thought of something. An AR stock wrench. Hm.
Exactly but instead of hoping that someday someone has that one little weird item you are looking for, you can ask for it and have a list of stuff that you are willing to trade for it.
The idea is there may be three different people that may trade in all directions. For example, I am looking for the J-frame grips I mentioned, I can take them from person A and pass something along to person B as long as person A gets something on his want list.
I don't know if it will work that way so we could just have a huge trade thread but limit the trade value to small and inexpensive items. That way people don't list everything that they own or list $1000 guns.
Basically a my junk for your junk trade thread. I know I have plenty of good stuff to trade for stuff I need. When someone lists something they are looking for, it jogs your memory and you can send it to them. You don't have to get something in return if you don't need/want anything.
The free pass it forward thread is basically stuff people want to give away where this thread would be stuff people are looking for. This would be a reverse of the other thread but people still have to pass stuff along. This way, you can ask for something you need instead of just waiting for someone to come along with something you want.
