Gun Listing Tips

Some gun auctions websites can offer various types of listings – a free one where your description and the number of photos are limited and other types where you will pay a listing fee that will allow you to add more information. Depending on what type of listing you choose here are some tips that will help your gun listing stand out:

  • Make sure to include detailed specifications of the gun model and type.
  • Mention a few details about the condition of the gun.
  • Try to post as many pictures that can display the condition of the gun from many angles. Choose a clear background in order to make the gun stand out in any picture.
  • Make sure to include a few details about shipping options and whether shipping charges are included in the price or need to be paid extra.
