Questions On Selling A Rifle

Recommended Posts

hey guys i have a savage arms model 16 cal 270 short mag left handed bolt. i have had it for a couple years and got it for deer hunting a love it but recently my hunting land was sold and i have decided due to the difficulty of finding another hunting spot i would just switch sports all together. i was moving to more of bird hunting and i have this nice gun that i paid over 800 bucks for and its almost usless to me and i need a good duck gun. and from the research its worth 688$ around there and i have a 14 power scope witch was around 160 and a sling and a box or two of ammo 40 bucks a box. and i dont want to just give it away and i dont want to go to cabelas (where i bought it from) and trade it in because i think they will beat me up like they did when i sold back my glock after owning it one year i lost 200 bucks on it. wondering what you guys thought on how to price it and how to go about selling it and getting what i do want which is a duck or goose gun! cosmetically it has a couple scratches in the synthetic stock where i rested it on a fence post killing 2 deer and the but is a rubber but with a small chunk missing out of it but i would rate it a 8 or a 9 out of ten because the butts easy to change and that would only leave a couple scratches on the stock nothing terrible or deep!

Never sell a rifle...you will regret it sooner or later.

Jusy hold on to it...you may need it again someday

The best deal is to trade for what you want. Be mindful of all the new and fun gun laws in your area. I just got stuck with I-594

K~08,

 

To maximize the resale of a fire arm your best bet is to list it locally (KA/MO is a good gun market).

 You can probably sell it quicker by listing it in Savage shooters Web site, or 24hourcampfire.com, or gun broker.com but the deal will incur the cost of shipping, the hassle of having to ship it to the buyers FFL and the risk of shipping damage/loss hassle even if insured.

 

Cabella's  is well known for a good variety of firearms that sell for high retail and buys at soft wholesale.

Savage are well made and very accurate rifles but not good resale value.

I paid $700. for my Savage Model 16 22-250 and the best I could get for it was 395. two years later (no blemishes)

 

I would wait until early fall (Sept) list it  and re list it every other week and you may be able to get $400-$450 if patient.
