Rules:

1. Be descriptive in your titles, eg:

WTS/WTB: Manufacturer name, Product Model

2. Be descriptive in your post about price, condition of product, terms of sale/trade, terms of shipping, your location and your contact information.

3. All transactions are between the buyer and seller, by using coltforum.com you agree that coltforum.com is not liable in any way.

4. Absolutely no illegal transactions allowed. All FFL rules apply. You, and only you, are responsible for knowing federal and your local laws.

5. You are allowed to bump your post to the top AFTER 48 hrs .

6. if you sell an item, have the courtesy of editing your post title to indicate that the item is sold, eg:

WTS: Manufacturer, Model, ***SOLD***

Do not delete the body of the message. Sold item posts serve as good information to others on how much certain items are currently selling for. You can delete out your contact information in the post if you want.

To edit the title of your post, click on the "Edit" button of the post, then click on the "Go Advanced" button. You will be able to edit the title on the Advanced page.

7. Sellers with multiple items should also combine their items into one post, e.g.:

Create a post with subject: WTS - Colt Mustang, Python 6", Miscellaneous Grips.

Then list all your items in that one post. You can edit the post as items sell.

8. No auctions are permitted . Ad must contain the sell price that will buy the item .

9. This is not required but we highly recommend the buyer request a 3 Day Inspection period from the seller .

10. Items to be sold are strictly firearms related such as guns , ammo , leather accessories , scopes ,mags , reloading , etc . No "off topic" items not related to the gun industry such as musical instruments , precious metals , used cars , you get the idea .

11. BUYER BEWARE ! Internet fraud is becoming more common these days . Ask questions , get additional photos . Be careful dealing with members having just joined the forum to buy or sell . Be wary of a new member pming you privately to sell . Contact/report to the staff if you have doubts . We can't guarantee safety but might spot something you didn't with regards to the member status .

--------

Suggestions:

1. Post pictures of the the product(s) you are trying to sell. A picture is worth a 1000 words and i assume that a picture will exponentially help sell your item. Use image hosting services such as:

Photo and image hosting, free photo galleries, photo editing

If you have had good success with other image hosting companies, email me the web address so i can add to this list.

2. Email me suggestions on Classifieds section rules if you think it will help make the section a better service.

3. If you do sell a product thru the Classifieds section, in lieu of compensating the board for this service, please think about sending a small donation to NRA, GOA or local Pistol/Rifle Association.

re: "OBO" and "make offer" .

We've been questioned on whether "make offer" and OBO (or best offer) are permitted . Sorry no .

The forum considers this a veiled auction .

To be clear , you must post a set price that will buy the item .

Thank you .
