Where to sell C&R's these days

I just got engaged and there are some small kids involved, so I am planning on trying to trim my collection down to what is really important to me. Is there a good place to sell C&R's these days or just go the GB or AA route?
TIA

Pick a price you want and try it here first. No fees, and generally no flaky people. If it doesn’t sell in a week then move it to GB.

Good quality unmessed with surplus rifles are doing well these days.

Any milsurps are hard to find at this point. Local shops have dried up, and given up looking. Run of the mill Mosin 91/30s are going for $350 now. It's a sellers market, But I wouldn't part with anything I didn't at least have a few of.

Depends on the type of C&R really

You do have a NDWC show in grand forks this coming weekend and another decent show coming up in March at Minot

gunbroker is soft on black rifles, but still very strong on C&R military stuff, and even classic American. AA is a joke fantasy land of above retail listings, so nobody goes there.

Nonetheless you disgust me, and I take comfort in the knowledge that your obituary will be nowhere near as humorous as mine.


The next time I hear "THE RANGE IS NOW HOT", it just wont be the same.

Max tried another question. "What sort of people live about here?"
"In THAT direction," the Jin said, waving its right paw round, "lives a Han: And in THAT direction," waving the other paw, "lives a Ming Hare. Visit either you like: they're both mad."
"But I don't want to go among mad people," Max remarked.
"Oh, you can't help that," said the Jin: "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
"How do you know I'm mad?" said Max.
"You must be," said the Jin, "or you wouldn't have come here."

actually due to the softer traffic you can get some very decent buys on AA
mostly antiques though
