    I have to turn over a few rifles to help fund my drift boat purchase for this spring, do you guys use GunBroker or some other site? They are Bushmaster Carbons, going rate seems to be $1200 on up. Brand new, still in the box.

    hopefully, on your ignore list
    I would go with Buds Gun Shop. There have been some ridiculous prices on some stuff lately, apparently, their customers have plenty money to spend.

    How much hassle do you want? I am a low-hassle kind of guy. I would visit a few local gunshops and see what they will offer.

    I personally prefer using local sites for face-to-face purchases/sales or, more often, putting guns on consignment at a local gun shop, which charge a fee of 10% of the selling price. I've bought a couple guns out of state and it was too much time and hassle in both cases for my liking.

    In this market, an auction site would get you the most for your guns.

    I use armslist.com to find local buyers - it's free and I've had great response from it.

    Given the current climate, you should be getting $2000 per gun. Any less and you have been taken. Morals be damned, that's just how it is right now.

    I'd try gunbroker or GT classifieds for a premium price!

    Gunbroker.com, auction them with a high minimum bid.

    You'll make bank.
