How To Legally Sell A Gun

While private gun sales are legal in many states, others have serious restrictions. In states like California and New York, private sales of firearms are completely illegal, and many others have varying requirements you must be aware of. To ensure you’re legally selling guns as a private seller, research and stay knowledgeable on current local, state and federal laws related to gun ownership and gun sales. These legalities are subject to change, so watch closely as individual states and their gun laws laws may vary. As a leading Dallas gun trader, we’re passionate about the 2nd amendment and have online resources available to the public to learn all the details for how to sell a gun in Texas.

Here in our great state, it’s legal for a Texan to privately sell guns to another Texan, as long as they’re 18 and not a convicted criminal or subject to a restraining order. If that private seller wants to sell a firearm to a resident outside of the state, it has to be shipped to a Federal Firearms Licensed (FFL) Dealer, who then conducts the background check on the new buyer.

How Much Is My Gun Worth?

Here’s the major factors that determine the value of your used gun.

  • Make
  • Model
  • Caliber
  • Current Condition
  • Brand Popularity
  • Modifications
  • Supply / Demand

We buy used guns on a daily basis from people all over Dallas and Forth Worth, Texas. We help gun owners every day that are ready to sell their gun outright but aren’t experts in all the factors that determine a gun’s value. We inspect your gun and then price it through several gun appraisal avenues to determine current value and make you a fair offer. If you want the most money when you sell used guns, come visit us, we’re the leading Dallas gun buyer and will take better care of you than pawn shops and other gun stores.

How Do Background Checks Work?

When you buy a gun from a federally licensed firearm dealer, you’ll fill out Form 4473, this asks you 16 questions about your background, criminal history, and drug use. Then the FFL uses the National Instant Criminal Background Check System to submit your form answers and social security number to the FBI. The FBI then draws from three different databases, looking for records that document a history of violence, drug use, criminal and mental health issues, and dishonorable military discharges. 

An unlicensed, private party seller has no way to run a background check on anyone. Save yourself the liability and stress and just sell your gun to us! We always keep the process simple, fair, and get you the best offer possible. 

 

 

Should I sell my gun to a private party or licensed dealer?

As a private party seller, it’s your responsibility to make sure you are complying with all laws when you’re selling guns. Some gun owners sell firearms to another individual and have decent experiences. Be aware of the potential hassle of dealing with strangers online, the labor of making sure you get a fair price for what you’re selling, and the potential to find yourself in a dangerous situation. Save yourself the stress, liability, and research and let us have a shot at buying your used guns. We’re a trusted DFW gun buyer that keeps it simple and enjoyable. You’ll get paid in a matter of minutes, know your gun will only being sold to a responsible person, and get a bill of sale that proves you sold your firearm to an FFL dealer.

Great Feedback from our Sellers

Just sold them some guns that I inherited, and they gave me an honest and fair price that was almost exactly to the amount that I had calculated myself before going in. Will do business with them again.
