Need some advice. I really think I would like a P320 with ms. I currently don’t want to spend the money. Would I be crazy to try to trade a W. German P226 in great condition with 4 magazines for a new P320? Could I make an even trade. Would appreciate advice. I really love the P226, I just don’t shoot it much and can’t really add any accessories. Thanks in advance.

That sound you hear is Sylvester's son placing a paper bag over his head in shame

I shoot P320s well and have owned a few. It is a nice striker pistol but compared to a WG P226 well, guess which will continue to climb in value and which will not

If you have the original box, manual, test target it's a keeper.
I don’t think I have the box or manual as I remember it came in a cardboard box with manual spent shell casing and possibly target. I put the gun in a soft case and I have moved. It’s possible it’s around but that was roughly 30 years ago when I bought it. Didn’t even cross my mind that it would make it more valuable as I was a kid and at that time didn’t know better. Same thing with my GI Joe’s and my kids He Man etc.

Keep your P226.

The P320 is a different experience - a good gun to shoot, but a very different thing in hand.

With patience, I would expect the P320 to drop in price over time - especially the basic ones without all the cosmetic enhancements. Right now things continue to be crazy in demand, but this won't last forever.

My West German P226 born in 1988 when I was a sophomore in high school, bought used for $400 USD in 1994. Along with my deceased dad’s Colt Trooper Mark V 4” barrel and his S&W 5903, this would probably by one of the last guns I ever sell. But then again, I don’t sell or trade guns often.
