"I couldn't find anyone who would give me close to what my Browning was worth until I found Cash for Arms."

"I was skeptical at first because it was online and out of state, but I am totally happy that I went with Cash for Arms in the end, and would definitely recommend them to my family and friends."

"I sent them the wrong gun by accident.  Most people would have been mad, but Cash for Arms was awesome about it.  They treated me with respect, courtesy and professionalism, and made me a great offer for the gun I sent them."

"Cash for Arms offered more than the 2 or 3 other places I looked at.  Not only that, they offered me $105 more than what I was asking."

"They gave us a wonderful offer.  We didn't have to go anyplace else - we went with Cash for Arms.  I highly recommend them."

I would definitely do business with them again. Everything that they said was going to happen, happened."

I'm happy to say the experience was all I could hope for. The offer was more attractive than the local gun shops, the whole process was expeditious and painless, and my payoff was delivered the same day they received the guns.

Frequently Asked Questions

Am I able to legally sell a gun?
Down arrow icon

If you are the rightful and legal owner of a firearm, you are able to sell it. If you are unable to legally possess firearms, due to prior felonies or other reasons, you will need to find a friend or family member to facilitate the sale on your behalf. We recommend familiarizing yourself with your local laws.

Can I change my mind about selling my guns?
Down arrow icon

Sometimes gun enthusiasts regret the decision to sell their guns. If you accept our offer but then decide that you want to keep your guns instead, you can always change your mind before sending the items to us. Once we receive the items, however, we issue payment and the transaction is complete, so changing your mind after that point is not possible.

How do I transfer the gun legally in my state?
Down arrow icon

The transfer process of your guns varies by state, so we encourage you to familiarize yourself with your own local law. In most states, the transfer process is simple and straightforward, and customers don’t need to do anything but sell their guns to our gun-buying service -- it’s as simple as that. In some states, you may need to complete and submit some documents to your state, which is why we give you a bill of sale with our FFL on it so that you can complete that transfer when needed. We are dedicated to complying with the law during every transaction.

Do you sell guns?
Down arrow icon

Yes, like most other local gun shops, we do sell guns. Our business model is purchasing firearms from individuals and then reselling them online to our network of hundreds of thousands of gun buyers.

How do I know this isn't a scam?
Down arrow icon

You can access our FFL using the EZ lookup tool at the top of our website. You can also see that the ship-to address on the labels we will send you is the same address as our registered FFL. Basically, any person who sells firearms is secured to transact with us, even first-time sellers.

Do you buy gun accessories?
Down arrow icon

Yes, we buy guns and gun accessories. However, if you only want to sell an accessory to us, it would need to carry substantial resale value in order for us to be able to make a competitive offer.

Do you buy ammo?
Down arrow icon

Yes, we buy gun ammunition. However, we are not able to make a competitive offer for your ammunition unless the value of the ammo is more than $200 (unless you’re selling other things to us). We can still make you an offer, but the fixed costs of each deal may eat into the offer substantially.  If you have rare ammo or a large quantity or it, then we would be able to make a fair offer to you for your ammunition by itself.

Do you buy black powder guns?
Down arrow icon

Yes, we buy all kinds of black powder weapons, including black powder rifles and black powder pistols.

Do you buy NFA Class 3 weapons?

For our clients who believe their weapons are worth more, we offer a cash consignment program. Here are the details:

  • Guarantees a cash minimum
  • Guarantees payment within 21 days of receipt

What happens if my shipment is damaged or lost?
Down arrow icon

If a package is damaged by the carrier, or lost in transit, we stand by and cover our sellers, honoring the full payout. However, if the items are damaged due to poor packaging, an insufficient box that was too small, or too weak for the items, then a reduction would take place as insurance doesn't cover careless packaging.

How do I ship ammo?
Down arrow icon

To ship your ammo, you will need to pack it securely in a completely separate box on its own. Ammunition isn't allowed to be shipped in the same box as guns, so it has to go by itself. You will affix a special symbol to the box, and then ship it to us.
