We are having an auction soon and was thinking of including 5-7 shotguns in it, plus an older winchester model 94 30-30. Guns seem to be bringing premium or better prices at the auctions around here lately.
What are your guys thoughts - auction, gun broker, sell directly to a gun shop?
Thanks in advance.

An auction is going to probably be the best bet providing the right people show up. I would say that a dealer would be the worst.

Id put the guns in the auction to help draw a feel more people to the auction that is interested in the guns and while they are waiting on guns to be sold they might buy or bid on some of the other auction items

Guns seem to sell at better than average prices and alot of times higher than new on auctions here.

A dealer has to have room to make a profit, so you won't get as much from one. An Auction is a crap shoot with out a reserve. I think you'd do better to sell them yourself, but be careful of falling afoul of Federal and State gun laws, including shipping reg's.

If it's a well-attended auction guns always bring at least what they're worth.

That Ithica is always in demand, very high quality. I bought a Deerslayer with a 26" cylinder bore slug barrel, rifle sights, and got a 28" mod, and a 30" full for it. Love the bottom load/eject.

Can go on Gun Broker. Or any gun shop would probably put them on consignment. Let your friends know. I know my friends are always looking for a gun.
Had the same Ithaca, unfortunately, someone broke into my home and stole every gun I had. They never did find them. I loved that gun. I actually found it in the Hackensack river in NJ back in 1986.

Gunbroker, you should be somewhere between 6-12% commission on those guns.

I feel they will bring the most money at the auction and it will help draw people also, but you will have to consider that the percentage the auction company will get will reduce your end of the deal somewhat. Another plus side is they will all sell at the auction and you won't have to go around selling them piecemeal..


I'm just happy to be here! Today I'm as young as I'll ever be and and older than I've ever been before!

I have seen MANY used guns sell at auction for more than you could go buy a brand new one for.
