When you want to sell your guns, it can be difficult to know how to proceed with the sale while abiding by all the applicable laws. You must meet regulations established at both the state and federal levels to remain within the guidelines – or legal repercussions could arise. You can avoid all of those complications by skipping the private party sales and going to your local gun consignment shop. They can put your firearms on consignment or buy them outright. Here’s what you need to know about these top options for selling guns in California.
When you take your guns to a licensed consignment shop in the Inland Empire, they may put them up for sale on your behalf in their gun case. You will retain all ownership rights until your gun sells and those rights transfer to the new owner. The gun consignment shop will not have any right to ownership of your gun throughout this process. Instead, they will trade their services for a portion of the proceeds of your gun sale.
For their fee, they will perform all the sales services and background checks needed by state and federal law. They will ensure that the sale of your firearms abides by all regulations to protect you from legal liability.
Through their promotion of your guns for sale, they can quickly find qualified buyers ready to complete the transaction. Once your firearms sell, the licensed dealer at the gun consignment shop will take their fee and let you know your funds are ready. If your gun does not sell in a timely manner, you may need to adjust the price. You can receive guidance on pricing from the licensed dealer, adding value to your arrangement.
In some cases, licensed firearm dealers will elect to purchase your gun outright rather than putting it in their consignment case. Since you do not have to wait for the gun to sell to get your money, this arrangement could greatly benefit you.
You can hash out the details with the licensed gun dealer before agreeing to the sale. When you choose this arrangement, the licensed dealer will handle all aspects of the purchase process, protecting you from any and all liability. At the end of the transaction, the gun store will own your firearms and you will quickly be on your way with the agreed upon funds.
These options can save you a lot of heartache while selling your guns in California. With either one, you can transfer ownership and receive payment for your guns without worry about breaking any state or federal laws.
