Do you have a gun you would like to sell?
Many people have asked me over the years to sell guns for them. I’ve decide I will start helping you get the most for your firearms. Most dealers charge 15% or more to consign a gun and in a gun shop it might take months to sell. Selling on-line provides instance access to thousands of buyers. If it is properly priced, it will sell in a week or two.
The key to getting the most for your gun is to take good pictures of it after being cleaned, and providing an honest description.
I am offering this service for only 10%. I’m a licensed dealer who exclusively sells on-line. Send me an email if you would like more information and thanks for looking at my listings!
