How it worksGuns.com has created a new service for the members of our community. If you have a used firearm you have been looking to sell, we will make you an offer. If you like the offer, we’ll send you a box and prepaid shipping label — all you have to do is drop it off at the designated shipping location. Our appraisal team will inspect the firearm, and issue you a check for the agreed upon price if the firearm is in working order. Guns.com will respond to every submission within 1 business day, and we will complete our inspection of each gun within 24 hours of receiving it.
