Buy them cheap from her as a package deal then sell them separately for a profit.

You can look up there values on Gunbroker pretty easy. good luck with the sale. Most places will offer you half of what they are going to sell them for. A private sale would be the most profitable but it can be a pain in the butt if you have a lot of guns to sell.

....but to get an accurate idea of value using GunBroker, create an account so you can search COMPLETED items. There are hundreds of thousands of guns for sale there at 150-300+% more than their real value. Sellers put them up at high prices forever waiting for the next sucker. Don't go by asking price.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't the recent Executive Orders on firearm sales make doing this a risky move for a Non FFL?

I bought a rifle from a man selling his late brother's extensive collection on Armslist.. It would have to be a hassle to keep track of emails and offers. And then shipping... confused2

I don't think that has been implemented yet because of financial backing? flag

I never said don't use an FFL but I'm not sure if that is even in effect yet.

I'd sell them here. 2 ways to go about it

1. sell them myself through the classifieds.
2. contact of few of the dealers/collectors that are here regularly, solicit bids on them as a lot and take the highest one.

Im not talking about the background checks on private sales issue.

I'm talking about a non ffl buying firearms with the sole intent to flip them for a profit. Again, I'm not an expert, but reading this ATF faq on the subject would make me hesitate to do that myself..

Can you post a list? That may help. You could also sell the entire lot to a ffl but most are going to give 50% the value at best

Thinking along the same lines as Cleric. If there's more than 50 firearms, I'd at least consider it. The FFL assumes all the risk, and it's his money that's now tied up in the collection.

She walks away with cash.

If she's not in a bind she should list them individually and get the best money. If she's in a bind and you have the money, make her an offer. Or list the lot here at a good value.

Is that REALLY what you would do to a friend who lost her husband?

For the OP...

If there is a LGS you have a good relationship with and trust, see if they will sell the guns on consignment. They will take a commission but they will have an incentive to get at least a fair price for them. If your friend is not in a hurry this would be the simplest way to handle it legally and hassle free.

If she just wants to get rid of them sure. If she wants to make some money back of of them then maybe I would just buy a gun or two to remember my friend by. People die something has to happen with their possessions.
