    Hey guys,
    I have been out of the shooting sports for a few years. It seemed like back then there was a relatively active market for krieghoff shotguns. I am trying to sell mine right now on gun broker and after looking at a collection of k guns already listed noticed that hardly any have been bid on. It seems like there is just relatively little activity out there. Is that just on K guns or is it just gun broker? Any suggestions on the best way to sell a krieghoff these days? There are few gun clubs around were I live now which makes it hard to do things the old fashioned way. Thanks for any comments or suggestions!

    Gunbroker is for most guns just a fake place to list your gun. It acts as a catalog.

    Also it appears there are people that have their friends and relatives bid guns up on gunbroker. Think car auction and that might gunbroker but I cant state that with absolute clairity. Make your own observations, its not gunbroker its the people that are taking advantage of the media and abusing it.

    regards from Iowa

    Its the economy. Seems all trap guns are not selling, or they are priced way lower than they were even two years ago. Jon

    I t seems that there are no great deals I had a bunch of Krieghoff for a few years bought shot sold for others were the best sellers of shot guns . I had also bought some older K32 at deals have looked recently and there are no great deals even compaired to 4 years ago on anything I am seeing even other makes seem high priced. How fast you want to sell something some shot guns are for sale for years on gun broker . Look at prices all over then find a price you are happy to sell at forget any thing else.

    Wow! Thanks for all of the responses. Good information. Looking back, I wish I had found this website first. I probably would have passed on gun broker. There is just so little activity.

    For those who asked, I am trying to sell a K80 trap combo. Apparently the unsingle barrel guns are not selling as well as they once did either (so I have read).

    I may let it run once more on gun broker then list it here.

    Thanks again for the responses.
