I have sold many guns. Gun World has always been fair and up front about their offers. I f it a hot desirable gun you might get 60% of what they are going to sell it for. If I am willing to wait 30 or 60 day and put it on consignment I can get 70%. They stressed that this is on desirable gun in mint condition like Gloc,k SiG Sauers, Kimbers. On old shot guns it going to be half of what they sell it for.
I was lucky. I sold a Sig Sauer 516 that I paid $1600 for and got $1800 but this was at the height of the AR Panic at the beginning of 2013. They lady bellow “sanfernandovalley” must have thought here Ithaca was worth a fortune. I bet she was lucky $25-50 for it and yes they are going to sell it for $100 or even $150. I know from working at gun store when I was young, that those guns can sit for ever and that a store can get dozens of them. When you have 10 of something you are not going to offer much for it. I was told by the owner that it take almost two hours of paper work to log the gun in, do the State and Federal paper work and the pawn broker checks on the gun. Sometime the gun comes back stolen and they are out all of their money.
I thing gun world is a great place to sell guns it is one of only two stores I know of that is always willing to make an cash offer. Most store will not by old firearms and are willing to only do it on consignment.
