PLEASE READ THE PAYMENT & SHIPPING INFORMATION POSTED AT THE END OF THE AUCTION. IT MAY SAVE TIME FOR BOTH OF US.
BEFORE YOU ASK WHAT THE RESERVE IS, PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING…
We do not disclose the Reserve on our “RESERVE AUCTIONS” because doing so defeats the purpose of the auction. Disclosing the Reserve makes it a “Sale”, not an auction, much like a classified listing. Most of the firearms we offer at auction are on consignment from one of our clients. Our commitment to our clients is to obtain the highest fair market price possible for their firearms. Thus, we prefer the Reserve Auction and the “HAGGLE” feature offered by Auction Arms. About 50% of our sales are completed via the Haggle. In a Reserve auction the bidder is not necessarily aiming to hit the reserve. The bidder is however aiming to be the high bidder. When the auction ends the high bidder may request a HAGGLE or the seller may initiate a HAGGLE. This is a one-on-one exchange between buyer and seller to try and come to a mutual agreement on a price. If you are not familiar with the HAGGLE process, click on Auction Arms “Help & Info” for complete details. For those items that are not on consignment we usually offer a convenient “Buy-It-Now” price.
