Thread: Reward!

  1. #1

    Reward!

    For the whereabouts of an honest gun trader? I took a gun to a trader last week and his cash offer was 20% of the RRP. The giveaway was there was no giveaway!
    He had entry level examples for double his offer on my EELL in perfect nick.

    So for example a gun has a RRP of £1000.00 and deader pays you 20% off at £800.00 he would then make a profit of £200.00.
    Appears to be a fair deal really, he has to make a living

    Stick it on Guntrader as that's where most folks will go to look, rather than the limited numbers on here

    Sideplates are a bit niche, I always thought - nice to haves and not everyone's cup of tea (or budget) - keep it if you can or visit a more discerning dealer who actually knows what he's looking at and what it's worth.

    Its also sometimes worth going the 'selling on behalf of' route with a RFD you trust - they get 10% and you get your sale

    I think that is about right for a second hand gun. If as the example above the trader has a gun advertised for £1000 then they will have bought it in for about £600 plus vat so £720.
    That is for a new gun.
    So depending on the age/condition £200 for a used model would be about right as he could then sell it at a profit and still mark is up at less than half a new one.
