Well I am back from yesterdays trip to the other dealer who said he sells on the internet an would have no problem with getting me a fair price.
I took 3 Smiths,1. 39-2,2.625-3 and a Mod.28 all still in the box and like new. The two Pythons an the commercial Colt Govt I bought new in 1967 it is still in it's original box with paper work.
NOW he could get me roughly $325.00 to maybe $350.00 for each gun and now the kicker his costs for selling the guns was $130.00 per,SO I GET $200.00 apiece for them.
I did not even ask what the Colts would bring I left.
I want to sell them but I do not have a FFL so any Ideas.

You don't need an FFL as long as you are shipping to an FFL and he agrees to accept them from a non FFL and then the gun is transfered to the buyer from him.

Right. Notice how many sellers on the internet auctions are not FFL dealers. Only required that you ship to an FFL (you should get a copy with original signature, which some FFLs are reluctant to send to individuals) and that you ship by common carrier (no USPS) according to their requirements, usually 1 day air to minimize their exposure. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

You don't have to get an original FFL copy. A faxed copy will also work.

New rule. Good point. Some FFLs, if they accept from individuals, may want a copy of your DL. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

I don't know if 11thACR is getting lots of private emails from people here wanting to buy his guns - and I think it's already been suggested - but if he really wants to get good prices for his guns (at least his Colts), sounds like he is well advised to offer them for sale on this site.

I don't understand the reason for wanting to involve a dealer who is going to take his "cut" and/or not offer a fair price. Depending on condition/etc, sounds like he would certainly realize much more than what the dealers have been offering - even if he sold for less than the outrageously high market would pay right now.
