This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    Bad idea, never sell a gun to by a ring.

    Let's talk sense...

    1 - Your gun will never leave you and take 1/2 of everything you own.

    2 - The only time you hear noise from your gun is when you want to.

    3 - Things on your gun will not droop over time.

    4 - Your gun enjoys 2 3/4 inches without complaint.

    5 - You are not there to please your gun, it is there to only please you.

    6 - You can use your gun for all it's worth, then put it away in a closet.

    Think it over....

    While we're on the subject, someone please tell me why diamonds are worth anything, especially nowadays.

    Advertise them here first, then list elsewhere if they don't sell. Save yourself the GunBroker fee.

    I agree with new loader, Try to sell them on here first. if that doesn't work use gunbroker. I have had excellent success on there and here. I have sodl 90 guns on gunbroker. never had to relist one. Fee's are very cheap, cheaper then putting them on consignment anywhere.

    gunsamerica for a million reasons I dont want to debate here

    I will say you wont get what you think you will on gunbroker--

    what kind of ring? I guess if its an old hog house gun we know what your financial investment is going to be in this endeavor

    regards from Iowa

    I've sold dozens of guns on Gunbroker and each were bid above retail. However, all were collector grade guns. You might try listing them here first to avoid the minor fees charged.

    No hog house guns here Gene. It doesn't need to be a hugh stone on my girls finger. Just one that says I do.
    .1 Diamond Grade 101 34" MC Graco/Kickeez top single w/factory choke tubes
    .2 Colt MKIV Govenment Series 80 .380
    These are just a couple that I have. I don't shoot the diamond as good as the pigeon. The colt has some holster wear at muzzel on the slide. Both in very good shape. I will post some pictures tomorrow. I don't have any to post right now.

    I use gunbroker and have never had any problems.

    The fees are free until you sell, then not that high after you sell.

    Many gun and gun parts buyers are morons when it comes to leaving feedback and getting the type of payment you request. I ask for postal money orders only.

    FFL to FFL is the only way I will sell guns.

    Make sure you take many close up pics of any wear, and accurately describe every detail.

    I have used both gunsamerica.com and gunbroker.

    I prefer gunbroker because once you get set up, it is just as easy as gunsamerica and you get better prices than on gunsamerica.

    All you gotta do is put a reserve price on whatever you are selling and if the bid does not equal or surpass the reserve, the gun is not sold.

    Put it up for a week or so, just so more people will see it and don't expect any bids before the last day of the listing.

    Gunsamerica is also fine, but I think gunbroker is marginally better.

    Another idea is to just list them here. I have had good luck that way too.
