Determining the value of your used firearm

Determining the value of your used firearm

3 Reasons why selling in-store is more beneficial than selling online

If you’re interested in selling a used gun stashed away in a closet or are simply ready to trade in your trusty 10-year-old sidekick, there are a few things to remember when selling your used firearm. Although many people think selling their used gun on a site like Gunbroker may be the best route for their money, there are a lot of different factors that go into selling your used guns and the value you get for them.

While you may be able to get a higher price initially, keep in mind there are additional costs and steps you’ll need to take to complete the process. Selling used guns to stores like Morr can save you much more time and effort in the long-run. And you know what they say, time is money.

1. The market is always changing

By selling your used firearm to a store like Morr, all of the research and market value for your gun is done by our team of experts. We consider the brand of your used gun, the year it was made, how much of a market demand there is for it, and any accessories sold with the firearm. We always encourage our customers to be informed and do their own research, too, but a thorough evaluation of your gun’s value is done in-house, so you can rest assured you’re getting fair market value for your firearm. Because values do change over time, our offers are valid for one week.

2. Morr handles the hard parts for you

Not only do we do the research to evaluate the price of your used firearm, but we do all of the leg work, too. If you choose to sell a used gun online, you have to do a lot more than just press a button and collect your money. You have to take photos of your gun, write descriptions, compare websites to decide which is your best bet for money, communicate with interested buyers and answer their questions, and pack and ship the gun for repurchase. You’ll also need to make sure to utilize to FFLs (Federal Firearms License holders) to ensure the right background checks are completed. When you sell your used firearm to Morr, we handle everything for you. Simply bring in your firearm, walk away with the money, and don’t worry about any hidden fees, taxes, or additional paperwork.

3. In-store gets you fast cash

On top of the process, you have to go through to sell your used firearm, you also have a waiting period before you can collect funds. For many online reseller websites, there is a two week period between selling the gun and receiving your payment. In addition to the long process, some purchases may go into disputes. If the buyer feels like the purchase wasn’t accurate, they didn’t get what they expected, or there was unnoted damage to the firearm, you may wait even longer to receive your money (if the sale still goes through).

All in all, Morr and other in-store used gun sellers are a fast and easy choice for getting money quickly and selling your used firearms free of hassle. Our team of experts are happy to answer any questions you may have and always encourage our customers to be well informed when selling a used firearm (or buying a new one, too)! If you’re ready to make your first sale, stop in our store today and give someone else the joy of your used firearm.

The Beginners Guide To Buying Used Guns

The Beginners Guide To Buying Used Guns

When it comes to buying used firearms, there are some things you should know. What is the condition of the gun that I’m about to buy? Does it fire properly and should I be concerned for my safety? What if I take it home and it immediately doesn’t work? If any of these questions resonate with you, we’re here to help alleviate the worries.

Making a successful purchase boils down to some basic knowledge about used firearms. Being aware of what to look for at used gun shops can make a world of difference (and save you lots of money in the long run) when it comes to purchasing a new-to-you, used gun.

At Morr Range, we offer a 12-Point Inspection that alleviates every worry and concern used gun buyers may have before making a purchase. By looking for similar guarantees and inspections where you shop, you can ensure the used gun is of good quality, safe to use, and a perfect fit for you.

Our Morr team examines every used gun with precision and attention. Thanks to our 12-point Inspection process, you can rest assured that every used gun in our facility is safe and operating properly and comes with our certified pre-owned guarantees. If you don’t shop with Morr, these 12 points are ones you can use anywhere you shop.

During our inspection, we pay close attention to the make, model, and caliber of firearms in addition to the overall condition, authenticity, and mechanical status. We thoroughly examine:

  1. Excessive Use – We examine the firearm for excessive use, stress cracks, dirt and more.
  2. General Wear and Tear – We examine the mechanics of the firearm for general wear and tear, and worn-down parts, as these are generally an indication that internal damage may be present.
  3. Rust and Corrosion – We examine the entire firearm for any signs of rust and corrosion.
  4. The Muzzle – We examine the muzzle of the firearm to assure it can be properly fired. We even take every used firearm out to our range and test it before selling it to a customer.
  5. The Barrel – We break down each firearm and examine the barrel to look for damage.
  6. Safe Handling – We inspect every firearm for signs of misuse or indications that the firearm may not be safe to operate.
  7. Mechanical Operation – We examine the action, trigger, firing pin, and any other mechanical parts of the firearm.
  8. Hardware – We examine the hardware on your firearm to assure everything is properly attached and useable.
  9. Accessories – Any accessories, including optics, sights, holsters, grips, and magazines that come with the firearm are also inspected thoroughly.
  10. Accuracy – We test sights and other components of the firearm for accuracy and safe use.
  11. Clean and Lube – Our team cleans and lubricates all certified pre-owned firearms to provide you with the best condition possible.
  12. Test Fire – Each firearm is fired on the range to test for operations, performance, and accuracy

We want every one of our customers to feel confident in their purchase and educated on what happens before the used firearm reaches their hands. For many of these points, you can ask who you’re buying from their evaluation on each. Because many shops do not have an inspection process or offer guarantees to ensure your firearm’s quality, shopping at Morr can alleviate all of your worries, fears, and reservations when it comes to buying used firearms.
