Selling Gun Collections In Pennsylvania Can Be Challenging, But There Is An Easier Way

Anyone who wants to sell a gun collection in Pennsylvania has a choice: go through the aggravation of trying to determine all the applicable state and federal gun laws you need to jump through or you can have CT Firearms Auction do the work for you.

How do you sell a gun collection in Pennsylvania?

CT Firearms Auction has a Federal Firearms License to buy and sell guns, so we know how to follow Pennsylvania laws. We have vast experience in buying gun collections from private collections and estates throughout the country. We are interested in talking to anyone selling gun collections in Pennsylvania.

Be aware of strict State & federal laws

In most states, private citizens do not need a Federal Firearms License to make a private sale. But they must abide by state and federal regulations. In Pennsylvania, someone looking to buy a rifle, shotgun or ammunition must be at least 18 years. Someone looking to buy a handgun must be at least 21. There also are laws against selling firearms to a felon, anyone with a history of mental illness or anyone in this country illegally.

A person selling a firearm in Pennsylvania must complete a Pennsylvania Instant Check System, or PICS, check before delivering a firearm to a buyer. It determines whether a buyer is eligible to purchase a firearm.

There is an easier way

Receiving a gun collection as part of an estate inheritance can be overwhelming, especially if it has sentimental value. We can guide you through the process of selling the collection.

Auctions often are the best place to sell inherited firearms. Gun collectors come to auctions, looking for rare, interesting and valuable firearms. Many firearms sold at auction are part of an inheritance or personal collection. 

Firearm auctions enable sellers to get the best price for their guns. Instead of haggling with the retail dealer, auction houses appraise the value for a starting bid. From there, it is worth whatever a collector is willing to pay. Auction houses take a simple commission. Beware of hidden fees. 

If you are interested in selling your gun collection in Pennsylvania, please contact the experts at CT Firearms Auction.
