i had a post on here about the rem. genesis, after the responses i decided to buy american. but i didn't have enough to get a tc, so i took my 4inch gp100. the shop had a new tc omega z5, the shop gave me the omega and $225.00 for my gp100. how'd i do?, was that a good deal? i know some will say if i'm happy it was, and i'm very happy, its my first tc and i wished i'd saved long ago and got one. i have always bought the lower cost brand, and while they have got the job done, the difference in quality is easily seen. so did i do ok from a trade standpoint?, thanks for any help.

From what I can find I'd say your GP 100 was worth around $550.00 and the standard T/C Omega Z5( blue on black) about $330.00. $330.00 + $225.00 = $555.00 so ya came out about even money wise, which is never bad in any trade, plus you got something you really wanted so even better. While I will admit I'm a fan of CVA's Optima line, they've come a long long way in recent years, I'm a life long fan of Thompson Center. Pick up any T/C firearm, and as you said, the quallity is very evident right off the bat. I've owned two T/C Hawkens and three T/C Renegades and each was a real pleasure to own and shoot. I now own a T/C Encore .270 and no amount of money period could ever persuade me to sell it.Posted Image I wish you many an enjoyable hunt with your new T/C. I think you have many just waiting to happen. Posted Image

If your GP 100 is the Ruger I would say that you got a good deal. Last years value is New in Box $400, Exc 300. VG 200 etc. That deal would make me happy too.

Paul, they're averaging $550 on GunBroker now. Shows how much the value of guns have gone up recently. Posted Image
