A Complete Guide To CYCLECHECK™, Our Semi-Automatic Firearm Testing Service

Are you on the hunt for a specific semi-automatic firearm?

Before purchasing your desired item, you’ll want to ensure that the firearm looks beautiful and performs flawlessly. After all, there is nothing worse than buying a gun and discovering it can’t fire! 

At GTA Guns and Gear & Auctions, we strive to provide the best customer experience possible to our clients, whether that’s through our easy online bidding process, receiving the firearm, or our buyers’ and sellers’ guarantees. To ensure that our clients are satisfied with the guns purchased through our auctions, we have created CYCLECHECK™, a semi-automatic firearm testing service.


CYCLECHECK™ is a performance guarantee service created by GTA Guns. Put simply, CYCLECHECK™ ensures that all of the semi-automatic firearms bought and sold through GTA Guns Auctions are fully operational.

What Does CYCLECHECK™ Entail?

At GTA Guns, we complete a CYCLECHECK™ on every semi-automatic gun before the gun is listed in one of our auctions. 

This entails testing the operation of the semi-automatic gun by firing it at a controlled gun range. We fire several rounds to ensure that the gun works flawlessly.

To maintain transparency and communication and develop a high level of trust with our buyers, we capture a high-resolution video of every semi-automatic firearm we test. The video of the gun at the shooting range is uploaded to prove that the gun operates properly. That way, you know that you are bidding on a firearm that both looks great and is fully operational.
