Select Fire: What is a Guns.com Certified Used Gun?
By GDC Staff
We turned our cameras inwards on Select Fire and visited Guns.com’s Vault of Certified Used Guns that are looking for a forever home.
Located in Minnesota, on our visit the Vault contained over 3,000 amazing firearms waiting for the “buy now” button to be clicked to meet their next owner. Guns.com’s Senior Buyer Mark Sims discussed the advantages of the company’s initiative to sell not just good used guns, but great ones.
“There is more value in the Certified Used Guns and that’s because they are fully inspected by the professional staff at Guns.com,” he said, explaining that when used guns arrive into Guns.com inventory they go through a full checklist to confirm that they are operational, not in need of repair, and fully functional. Then they are put through a condition certification to grade them.
Where do the guns come from?
The true hidden gem of the Certified Used Guns program rests in the nature of the way Guns.com’s buyers work. In addition to scouting estate sales and auction houses around the country, they also review daily submission to Guns.com’s “We Buy Guns” portal. This simple process, which includes a pre-paid custom fitted box for firearms sent in for evaluation, can be accomplished
