Thread: Friggin gun dealers.

  1. #1

    Friggin gun dealers.

    I travelled 70 miles round trip to let a well known Scottish gun shop see my 20g Browning C12g which is virtually unfired and the owner of the shop inspected the gun he phoned another "buyer" to get a second opinion and i overheard him saying my immaculate wee gun had "some marks" (when questioned over the marks all he could come up with was fingerprints on the stock) and duly offered me a commision sale which equated to 25% of the RRP. I left the shop fuming and as i can only trace 2 in the U.K. in very used condition on at 9,000 ish i feel these jokers are taking the pee.... Rant over.

    Maybe they see a very limited market for that model? I'll PM you a name of a sporting firearms valuation chap, may be worth a call?

    Sounds as if your were being played for a fallguy Red, you'll just have to bide your time !

    All the best with your sale.

    Try holts auctions.
    They came valued a rifle of mine free of charge. Took it with them and sold it and the commission was 10% I'm sure.
    Pits in there interest to get the highest price.

    Get Dicksons in Edinburgh to sell that on commision for you. They have the types of buyers who will take a gun like that.

    Sean in St Boswells is also worth a shout, he has bought a few off me and always been fair on pricing.

    A long way from you, admittedly, but you could do worse than speak to West London Shooting School, EJ Churchill or there used to be a shop at Royal Berkshire Shooting School. The people they have through these places generally have 'loads of money' and I could imagine someone snapping up your gun.
    Worth a punt to see how much they'd put it up for and want in commission?

    WLSS want 20% commission, which is outrageous.
