Frequently Asked Questions

How does Cash for Arms ensure compliance with federal and state laws when purchasing guns?
Down arrow icon

Cash for Arms strictly adheres to all federal and state laws during transactions. We provide a legal method for selling your guns in any state and supply a Bill of Sale for your records. We are licensed by the ATF, and take both federal law and state law very seriously. Our Federal Firearms License (FFL) permits us to legally purchase and transfer firearms in accordance with all relevant laws and regulations. By selling your guns to our FFL, you avoid dealing with additional logistical complexities.

Can I sell my gun collection to a pawn shop?
Down arrow icon

Yes, you can sell guns to pawn shops, but we generally discourage this option for several reasons. Pawn shops often lack expertise in evaluating firearms accurately, which may result in lower offers for your collection. Moreover, pawn shops typically focus on turning a quick profit and likely will not provide you with the most money for your guns.

In contrast, selling firearms to a specialized buyer like Cash for Arms ensures a more streamlined process, evaluating each gun individually, with a focus on paying competitive prices closer to book value. Our extensive network and in-depth knowledge of the market enable us to offer top dollar for your firearms.

In summary, while it is possible to sell guns to a pawn shop, it may not be the most advantageous option. You are more likely to realize the highest value for your firearms by working with a national buyer like Cash for Arms which specializes in purchasing firearm collections.

Does Cash for Arms buy large gun collections?
Down arrow icon

Yes, we buy collections of all sizes. Whereas many buyers may not have the funds available to pay you fair market value for larger collections, Cash for Arms has the cash ready to pay you the most money, even for a large gun collection. In fact, if you are selling a sizable collection, our appraisers are typically willing to pay, helping you achieve top value for the guns, due to economies of scale.

Can I sell my guns to a local gun shop?
Down arrow icon

Yes, you can sell your guns to a local gun shop, but there are a few factors to consider. A gun shop may not have the cash on hand to buy your entire collection outright. Local gun shops may encourage you to consign your collection instead, which can involve a lot of waiting and uncertainty.

When selling guns to a gun store, keep in mind that the local market may limit the pricing you can realize. Selling through a local dealer may not yield the highest price for your firearms, as gun shops need to consider their overhead and may not have the same reach as a national buyer.

In contrast, selling your collection to a specialized buyer like Cash for Arms can provide a more streamlined process, ensuring you receive a fair price. Our extensive network and knowledge of the market allow us to offer top dollar for your firearms.

In summary, while selling your firearms to a gun shop is possible, it's essential to weigh the pros and cons. You may find that selling your collection to a national buyer is a better option for realizing the highest value for your firearms.

Does Cash for Arms buy large gun collections?
Down arrow icon

Yes, we buy collections of all sizes. Whereas many buyers may not have the funds available to pay you fair market value for larger collections, Cash for Arms has the cash ready to pay you the most money, even for a large gun collection. In fact, if you are selling a sizable collection, our appraisers are typically willing to pay, helping you achieve top value for the guns, due to economies of scale.

Can I sell my gun collection on an auction site?
Down arrow icon

Yes, you can sell your gun collection on an auction site, but you must follow all applicable laws. Your state may require that you run a background check, and complete the sale through a local FFL. Additionally, selling at a gun show may involve renting a table or part of a table, and incurring a fee. With Cash for Arms, we handle all legal requirements and make the process hassle-free for you.

Can I sell my gun collection through an auction house?
Down arrow icon

Yes, you can sell your gun collection through an auction house, such as Rock Island Auction Company. Auction companies can help you sell your collection to a broad audience, potentially fetching a higher gun value.

However, there are some aspects to consider when choosing to work with auction houses like Rock Island Auction Company.
Selling through an auction company often involves consignment fees, which can reduce the net proceeds you receive from the sale. Additionally, the auction process can be time-consuming, as you may have to wait for the next scheduled auction event, and then wait further for payment after the auction has concluded. For example, at the time of this writing, Rock Island Auction Company holds only three Premier Auctions per year.

If you have an extremely valuable collection, comprised of unique museum-quality pieces, we recommend using a reputable auction house -- and Rock Island Auction Company is our go-to recommendation. They have the expertise and resources to market your collection in front of a national audience of prestigious collectors and investors, ensuring that you get more money for your rare and extremely valuable firearms to receive the attention they deserve.

However, for most collections that do not consist of multi-million dollar museum-type pieces, Cash for Arms offers a more straightforward and efficient way to sell your firearms, ensuring you receive a fair and competitive offer without the uncertainties and potential delays of auction houses.

In summary, selling your firearm collection through Rock Island Auction Company or another reputable auction house is an option, especially for extremely valuable collectibles. For other gun collections, working with a national buyer like Cash for Arms may provide a more convenient and reliable way to realize a competitive value for your firearms.  We recommend reading our article, How to Sell a Gun Collection, to learn more about your options for selling.

Is it possible to sell my gun collection at a gun show?
Down arrow icon

Yes, you can sell your shotgun at gun shows, but be sure to follow all relevant laws. Your state may mandate background checks or transfers through an FFL. Additionally, if you sell a shotgun at a gun show, you might need to rent a table or part of a table, which could involve a fee.
