We sell a lot of firearms for our customers using the consignment program. You leave us your MA compliant firearm and we’ll advertise it for you online, promote it at the shop and sell it for you. Handguns sell well year-round and long guns are more seasonal.
We’ll let you know what we think that item will sell for however you ultimately control the price.
For listing, promoting and selling your firearm we charge 18% of the selling price. This includes doing all applicable Federal and State paperwork for the new buyer and there is a lot of it! Also, we absorb the bank fees if the buyer pays using a credit card. For what you receive in services, this is not a lot to pay.
Due to the paperwork involved in processing a firearm we charge a $10 fee if you decide to take your firearm back. Federal laws require that we must do a Form 4473 and a NICS background check on a consignment RTO (Return to Owner). This small fee helps us cover these costs.
If the item doesn’t sell within 90 days we ask that you reconsider your selling price or take it back.
Incoming Transfers From Out-of-State
This includes receiving, processing, filling out state and federal forms, calling in the NICS background check, going over the Attorney General’s Consumer Protection disclosures (for handguns), recording the transaction as per B.A.T.F. rules, etc. There is a lot of work involved in doing a transaction.
Regarding handguns: Please call us to make sure that the item that you are bringing into MA is compliant with all laws and regulations. If it is not MA compliant we will have to send it back.
Call us at 781-932-3133 and we’ll send our Federal Firearms License (FFL) to the shipping dealer.
Please make sure that your name and daytime telephone number is included in the box so that we can call you when your package arrives.
Outgoing Transfers to Another FFL Dealer
Transfer fee: $20 / gun plus
Actual shipping charges:
Insurance charges will be what the carrier charges us.
Packaging fee: $15 / gun. We will waive this charge if you provide your own box and packing materials. Do not seal the box because we have to verify the serial numbers.
*Please note: It takes a lot of time to accept, process, pack properly and record transfers so that everything is in accordance with State and Federal laws. We need up to a week to get the guns out to the receiving dealer.
Buy the gun, scope and mounts from us and we’ll mount and bore sight it for you at No Charge.
Please note that the gun must be factory ready to receive a scope mount system. We do not drill and tap.
Mounting and Boresighting: $20
Boresighting only: $10
Disassemble, clean, lubricate and do an overall check of a firearm: $20 each.
All new firearms come with a factory warranty.. Please read your owner’s manual for details. Unfortunately, the manufacturers do not reimburse us for shipping, insurance, packaging time or doing the necessary paperwork on an item being sent back for repair.
If you bought the firearm from us we charge a flat $30 fee to pack and ship your firearm to the factory as a courtesy to you. This just barely covers the cost of shipping, insurance and labor. All handguns must go Next Day Air. (Heavier and more expensive firearms may cost more to ship due to increased freight and insurance costs)
If you bought the firearm from another dealer the charge is $50.
We will call you when your repair returns.
Please note that Federal laws allow an individual to ship a firearm to a repair center. Make sure that the return address you use is one where someone can sign for the package. You don’t want to find you firearm on your door step!
Pickups from Police Departments
If your firearms are being held at a police department, call Jim or Carl for assistance.
Depending on the location of the town and our staffing, we will do our best to work with you in picking them up and selling them for you.
There is a $100 (minimum) pickup fee plus a transfer fee per gun. The paperwork involved with firearms is very time consuming and costly. This is another service that we provide to our customers as a courtesy and would like to recover our costs.
We do not have the space to store firearms. Once we pick them up we will sell them or transfer them to another person.
Transfers Between Individuals
$25 per item.
