I'm about to finish up a piece that I am just refinishing and waiting on a leather guy to make a case for it but was wondering, how do y'all sell pieces that you decide to work on out of the blue from your personal collection? Do you go to a local shop and do consignment or do you go to a site like GunBroker and follow that route? Just trying to weigh out my options.

. Ps these are some older pictures of the piece just for giggles but like I said I am refinishing the whole thing so ignore any scratches or rust it's a 20+ yr old piece

i'd go to a local gunsmith and see what your local laws may be regarding such a sale. the laws vary from one place to another, so be safe and legal. find out from those in your area.
since you dont have an ffl, the sale would have to be done thru a dealer or somebody with an ffl that would be willing to help. i had an ffl for years, but never sold or transacted for others.

i am very familiar with sale laws as my father has been an FFL/sot my entire life and I live in tx so person to person is fine within tx if I sold through GunBroker I would just have to ship the gun with all of my info to an FFL dealer where the buyer would then have to fill out paperwork to receive the item I'm just trying to see what everyone's preferences were as to how they sold but I appreciate trying to keep people on the up and up
