We now offer 5 methods of selling your firearms.
The following is Wikipedia’s definition of market value or, open market value. “Market value or OMV (Open Market Valuation) is the price at which an asset would trade in a competitive auction setting.”
This is what we do. We reach out to a huge audience of over 65,000 people registered to be notified of guns for sale to create that competitive auction setting
Some sellers wish to post their guns on our site to expose them for a period of time to interested buyers at a price set by the owner. This is done for a fee and the posting lasts 2 months.
This is reserved for higher end firearms and a minimum acceptable bid is established. Pictures and descriptions are posted on our Silent Auction page for 2 months. Bidders submit bids online and we manage the bidding action. If the item’s bid does not meet the minimum bid established by the owner, the item is returned to him/her. For this we charge a flat fee and performance bonus.
This is my least favourite as our main agenda is to maximize the prices we get for owners through our auction methods. Outright purchases force us to perform like a used gun dealer or individual buyer. In other words, pay you as little as we can to mitigate the inventory risk we take on in doing so.
For collector guns only. We have access to many of the collectors groups and we will negotiate a sale of your rare collectible firearm.

We are currently accepting new firearms consignments for future gun auctions. You may be seeking to sell estate guns, sell hunting gear, sell militaria or sell reloading equipment. We take the burden from you of selling gun collections, collecting the money and ensuring that only licensed individuals buy them. So, if you are a gun owner wishing to sell guns, executor selling estate guns, a retiree wishing to dispose of a gun collection, or a widow who wants to sell, appraise, or store the firearms in now your possession, please contact us.
Our not so secret success formula is very simple. To get you and us the highest prices, we have to make the bidders confident that they are not buying someone else’s problem. If you have ever bought a used car, you know what I am talking about.
We go out of our way to ensure firearms sold through us perform properly and we prove it. Here’s how.
Buyers are worried semi-automatic guns they might buy through auctions are sold because they do not cycle. We prove that they do. Used semi-automatics listed for auction will have a video posted of our test firing on our Icollector bidding site. Those that fail are repaired prior to shipping. This give buyers more peace of mind.
In the back of every bidder’s mind is the worry that they might buy a gun that has issues. With GTA Gun Auctions, a licensed gunsmith inspects every used firearm and issues a condition report. This maximizes buyers’ bidding confidence.
To top it all off, if a buyer receives a firearm from us that fails to function, we will repair it for free, refund the shipping and pay for the shipping back to the buyer.
Now, you can sell a high end firearm and name your minimum price.
You may want to sell a very expensive firearm worthy of our advanced auction service. To qualify, your firearm must have a value in excess of $5,000.
We will post your high end firearm on our Silent Auction page for 60 days, send out an e-blast to more than 65,000 interested gun enthusiasts enticing them to place a bid. We manage the entire process. You and I will decide on a minimum value for the item to be sold.
In this way, you are guaranteed a minimum price or it will not be sold.
There is a flat fee for this service plus a performance bonus.
Did you know that we can legally and responsibly sell your unwanted guns for you even if you do not possess a firearms license? We can also sell unregistered restricted firearms for you. If you are currently unlicensed or the restricted firearm is not registered, you could be found guilty of a felony. If so, it is a permanent record and you will not be allowed entry into the U.S. or board a plane going out of the country.
Just call us at (844)482-4644 for a discrete discussion.
If you are in possession of a restricted firearm and it is not registered, you have every reason to be concerned. We can help. Do not hesitate to call us. Avoid a criminal record.
The market for prohibited firearms shrinks every day. This means that you will get a higher price today than you will tomorrow. Call us to have your prohibited guns sold in our very next auction.
You may need a short term storage for your guns or long term storage for your firearms. If you are moving into a residence that does not allow firearms, we can store the guns for you until you wish to access them again. We have a secure, licensed and insured facility.
This is a specialized field. It requires knowledgeable people to develop a good story. We have such people.
Are you an executor selling a gun collection? We can advise you on the procedures and legalities of dealing with firearms in an estate. There is no fee for this service.
