SELLING YOUR NFA DEVICES
MACHINE GUNS & A.O.W.'s etc.
In establishing a sales price for your NFA devices please keep several things in mind:
You will always get more if you sell retail direct to another individual than if you sell to a Dealer.
• This is because any Dealer has operating and marketing expenses which he must cover.
• So the Dealer cannot buy your NFA device unless he expects to sell it to someone else at a profit.
However, selling direct to another individual is not a free ride and may or may not be the best way to go based on your needs.
• This is because, by law, you cannot sell to another individual in another state---you must go through a Class III Dealer in the Buyer’s state of residency and that Dealer will charge you a fee for his services. If you sell direct, you are limiting your market to your local area.
• Are you equipped (and do you want) to take professional pictures that will present well.
• There are costs for ads, the marketing and the fielding of calls from every person out there that wants to talk about guns and then once you and the buyer reach an agreement…you must handle all the paperwork involved with the transfer.
• Of course, the potential buyer knows you are selling direct and will expect an appropriate discount.
• And…how sure are you that you are going to get your money?
Our Advice, generally, is to either sell direct to a reputable Class III Dealer at the best wholesale price offered, or, if you have the time, place the device with a reputable Class III Dealer on consignment.
At BluBoy Relics we let the Seller set the offering price and we charge a flat 15% of the final sale price. The Seller retains ownership until the buyer has paid everything and the transfer is approved by BATFE.
We will always keep the Seller fully informed of all negotiations and the Seller is welcome to change or modify the offering price until a deal is struck. References are available. Please don’t hesitate to call or email should you have questions.
