Should I trade away my 1911?

I have an opportunity to trade my Kimber custom II 1911 for a Smith and Wesson 360 (J-frame) in .357 magnum revolver.
I really like my 1911, but I have always wanted this revolver. I am torn, so I thought I would ask you guys.

the revolver plus $CASH$ right? might be workable depending on your wants and needs.

if revolver has built in lock i'd pass on it.

I wouldn't do it, but I am not a big revolver guy. If you would be more happy with the S&W than the Kimber, go for it.

A 13.3 oz 357 makes for a great range gun...

Unless you really want a carry a lot shoot a little gun I would not do it.

The revolver goes for about 700$ new. So I think they are worth about the same. I saw the same revolver in Cabella's for 900$, But we all know cabellas has a crazy mark up on their guns. The S&W website says MSRP is 649$ though. I figure I would carry the revolver, but I never carry the 1911. I usually carry my Glock 26.
This is the revolver I am talking about.

Go for it but the 1911 gods will not be pleased. Calamity will befall your family and it could cause a crack in in the cosmos that would not be good for all of mankind. If you can live with that guilt go ahead.

I wouldn't do it. I like revolvers, but I still think I would keep the Kimber.

I would say NEGATIVE ghost rider.. because lower capacity, maybe slower reloads???, I can imagine the moon clips for your reloads are a little bit more bulky compared to 1911 mags for conceal carry, but I havnt seen the size of the 360 compared to the kimber so I cant say the size pros or cons.... but at the end of the day its all about what you want

Now, these are the words from a HUGE 1911 and revolver guy. When it comes down to advice, I would listen to Brian. BTW, since I am a HUGE 1911 and Kimber guy, I would also say NO WAY.

<<< No camp.

Of many gun trades over many years - I only regret one.
That was an Armscor Stainlesss 1911 that I picked up for small $$.
Made a dumb trade for an AR15.
Wouldn't do that one again.

Keep your 1911 and save for the Revolver.

No way! That revolver won't get near as much as your 1911 in the used market. I would need a couple hundred cash along with it. I have seen a few of these on my local forum for around 500....

Only you know how much you like what you have versus how much you want the other thing. I have done gun trades I regretted and others I go back and think they were a great deal.

Personally I wouldn't do it, and I generally don't care for Kimber. But you have to do what makes you happy. You are the one that is looking at it and shooting it everyday.

No one has yet asked if the Kimber shoots well and is reliable. There is little doubt that the Smith will be. Of course, if he does the trade he won't be able to brag about owning a Kimber, but he can brag about owning something that works.
