Hello Ray,

In my opinion Gunbroker is the best place to sell,start the auction at $1.00 no reserve.The most important element is good photo,s,90% of the guns that dont sell on Gb are a victim of bad photography.

I agree with John K. I have had good luck selling on Gun Broker with 25-50 very good photos, a very thorough and honest description, and returns if not as pictures and described. I also start all of mine at $1.00 and let'r go. They will sell for what they are worth...every time for me anyway. Peter

I have never reserved one yet, but am always a little fearful about what might happen. Except for one time when I had an auction go off on Super Bowl night, I have always done ok. I have always made a little money and never had an unhappy buyer. I do have several that I know I paid a bit to much for (bought a little early as they say), and I'm not sure what to do there if I was to sell...just take a hit I guess. These sellers that keep relisting the same gun at the same high price are crazy in my opinion...the gun gets worn out in my opinion. I get really tired of sellers who do that. Peter

I agree Pday. I have been watching two Zulu shotguns for two years now come up over and over.
