    Help - A co-worker has an extremely nice Bersa mod 83 .380 he wants to trade for a so-so older, Ruger 10-22 of mine I have with a Butler creek folding stock and one 25 round mag. I really like the older Bersa guns - well made, tight and nice finish and I have a 70's Bersa mod 644 .22 - but I do like my 10-22. Please feel free to chime in on this. Thanks.

    Sounds like a losing deal.

    Do you have a Bi-Mart near you?

    Yes I do have a Bi-Mart near me - Are you saying I should keep my 10-22? - I suspect you are suggesting a price inequity between the two.

    i have a few bersa's love em. i carried an 83 for a few years. very reliable. you can always buy another 10-22 but mod 83 are not made anymore. i own 4-5 bersa's so i am prejudice.

    10-22 is $180 bucks at bimart, how much for a used bersa?

    Sorry, I thought the deal was going the other way around. Yeah, trade him for the Bersa and buy yourself another 10/22.

    My apology - I realized shortly after I was not very clear in my initial post - I am on the fence with this but this is a very nice Bersa - I would call it 98 + % - so you would do it without further thought?

    i would look at how common the bersa is, you can always get another 10/22... so if it has a aftermarket stock, the 10/22 is a dime a dozen, well not really but you know what i mean. sounds like he would be getting him the short end of the stick.
    why not offer him the going value of a 10/22, then you can keep yours as well as score a bersa?

    Trade for the bersa, but keep the mag, and make sure you get some ammo also. :thumbup:

    Done deal. I have the Bersa, two mags, half a box of ammo and a shoulder holster (when the previous owner can find it!) The up side is I already have a set of .380 dies so now I just need to find a supply of brass.
