You may want to consider working with an FFL on one of the sites to sell it. If you are a first time seller, you may get fewer responses than if you had a couple of positive reviews. I like both gunbroker.com and auctionarms.com when I'm browsing.
One big advanatge of selling on line is you ship it to a FFL. Then THEY deciede if the guy is legale to own it, not you. I do not like selling FTF. You can never be sure they person is OK and it can come back to bite you. I have sold a few guns at one time or another on the net since 98. Even on eBay before they went stupid. Never had a problem. I have used Gunbroker, and Auction Arms. Both are good places.
If you want to have more exposure to sell your firearm, your best choice would be gunbroker.com. Also make sure that in your state of residence, you are allowed to sell a firearm privately without an FFL dealer on your end. I know that an FFL needs to be the one entity to accept the firearm through mail, however; in Texas a seller does not have to have an FFl to mail off the firearm to another FFL. In California.....Well....that is a state that has become a country of their own in making their own rules and all. so you have to look into your states laws.
i have done very well in selling my weapons on gunbroker. sold both handguns and long guns. explored the market and offered clean guns at a fair price--everything sold and $$ received was more than i could get on an outright sale or consignment sale via the local shop. one complaint--shipping handguns is very expensive as they have to go overnight. long guns went via priority mail and usually broken down to keep package size minimal. i don't know what the deal is in ca regarding sending weapons as an individual to an ffl holder, but in ct it has been a non issue for me.
i did use gunsamerica on several purchases but gb has been more convenient.
I have used both and had no problems whatsoever; luckily for me the FFL dealer most used for these online transactions in San Antonio is well-versed on both sites and is 2 minutes from my front door....
did you try Free classifieds - backpage.com No charge and a list of many cities to chose from.
Personally I have bought a Python on Gunbroker described as "Like new box, flawless" that did not work and needed to be sent back to Colt. Gunbroker offered no protection at all. So now i only buy with a credit card. It may be difficult for you on both sites as you will have no feedback. i would try "backpage".
One of my local FFL dealers will let me sell on consignment. I've done this before. I've also listed in newspaper classifieds, and even sold a Mossberg 20ga at a garage sale years ago. As far as the sale/auction sites, I'm more familiar with gunsamerica than gunbroker, and to me gunsamerica seems to have a better format and easier to use for me.
