Get a general sense of the worth of each gun, and then see if you can sell them on consignment at a local gun store that has a Gunbroker.com account. That's probably the simplest way.

Agreed. GB might be a good choice to get an idea of value, or go to a collectors firearms store.Get a general sense of the worth of each gun, and then see if you can sell them on consignment at a local gun store that has a Gunbroker.com account. That's probably the simplest way.
Did this person that passed away mention any of this to you before ? Had he talked about if other people in the family were older something he would like them to have ? Did he entrust you to pass them down through the family. Not trying to beat you up. I've seen it so many times before other people in family will say I wish I known he was selling them, I'd bought that one.I really have no need for any of these, although, it is hard to say I have enough already.
Yeah, I can't swear to it but I think Collectors was sold or had some financial difficulties.Funny that Collector Firearms got mentioned. Reached out to them, they are interested in some of them, but they are not buying anything until later in the summer. I am not in a hurry, but I do not have the space to store them.
I went to the Marketplace to look up the information, rules, etc., but it says I do not have permission to view the pages. is It not possible to view the rules?Welcome to the forum.
Note that in order to offer anything for sale here, even via PM, you must have a minimum number of posts.
The best way to sell these is likely to consign them through local FFL dealers. They generally handle everything involved in marketing them, including online marketing, and transferring them for a modest 15% to 20% fee. Collector Firearms is not the only dealer in the area.
Consignment is generally much better than selling them to a dealer.
Great option! I was going to mention putting them on consignment locally, but if there is a GB Seller that does that kind of work, it would take a load off of your handsI had a similar experience and found a LGS that has a Gunbroker account. They took the guns on consignment with the understanding that they get a 15% commission on the sale. They did all of the paperwork, packing, shipping, etc. They were also able to determine what the market value of each firearm was, and what a reasonable sale price would be. When a gun sold, they called me, and I came in a picked up a check. I wasn't in a hurry for the money, so I didn't have to compromise on getting a much lower price, which would have happened if I tried to sell the guns outright to the FFL, assuming he would buy them. It took a while for all of the guns to sell, but it was relatively painless for me.
