The popular firearms website Guns.com has made the decision to now begin buying people’s used firearms that are either old are no longer in use.
The way it works is pretty convenient. First, the seller will fill out a form. The form asks basic, personal information about the seller, as well as details about the gun.
Basically, Guns.com wants to know the manufacturer, model, caliber and serial number. It also leaves a space for sellers to write a description of the firearm, including any accessories, enhancements, blemishes, and imperfections.
Sellers will also state on the form whether or not the gun is in working condition, as well as if it has its original packaging. In addition, the form requires sellers to take pictures of their gun at various angles.
All of the above information will help Guns.com determine how much money to offer the seller should they choose to purchase it.
Once Gun.com receives the form, they’ll evaluate the responses and pictures, and will respond with an offer. The offer is valid for 10 business days, starting on the date that is on the offer form.
If the seller agrees to the offer, it’s time to ship the gun to the website’s appraisal team. Guns.com will first send an appropriate shipping package and prepaid shipping label for the firearm. The seller then drops off the firearm at one of the closest appropriate shipping vendors (which has gotten pre-approval by Guns.com).
It is important to keep in mind that the seller must follow the shipping instructions exactly. Any deviation from these instructions is forbidden, and is potentially unlawful.
Then, upon receipt of the gun the appraisal team will inspect it and ensure it’s in working order.
Once the inspection is complete, Guns.com will then issue a check to the seller for the agreed upon price. The website states they will respond to every single submission within one business day. They will also complete each inspection within 24 hours of receiving the firearm.
Thankfully, there are no taxes or fees for either the shipment or payment of the firearm.
Thankfully, Guns.com isn’t just doing this process willy-nilly. Their firearm appraisals team has years of experience buying, selling, and trading firearms. They also are very knowledgable about condition assessment and gun performance.
The firearms appraisal team is also aware of the up-to-date market value of every firearm they purchase. They also have a strong commitment to ensuring your firearm is in the right condition. Because of this, they’re able to offer a fair and competitive price for the sale of your firearm.
Once the firearms appraisal team approves their inspection of the firearm, it’s time for payment. All payments are sent within 72 hours of the inspection team’s notice of approval.
