Default Selling a Gun

Hi, I have a .50 cal Thompson Center muzzleloader that I am looking to sell. I have seen all kinds of conflicting info online about what is required to stay legal in IL. Does anyone have any names of gun dealers or shops that buy guns? I am not sure I want to go the private route and validate FOID cards, waiting period, etc. Thanks

Gander Mountain and Cabelas buy guns, but you won't get anything for it.

Most gun dealers will broker a deal for you for about $25 FFL fee and whatever paperwork costs these days... I use Midwest Guns on Plainfield Road in Lyons and they're happy with the business.. Closer to you might be Article 2 in Lombard/Addison, near 53 and North Avenue... Just bring the gun and the buyer and it takes about 30 minutes if everyone has credentials...

Its simple to do it on-line at the ISP website. Don't be afraid. Get what your gun is worth thru a private owner. It is simple. You will get nothing for the gun at Gander or Cableas. I took a MINT Ruger Centerfire Rifle in worth between 500-600 and they wanted to give me 225. Gun had been shot 6 times and I was the original owner, wood stock and checkering. I ended up trading it for the true value.

This is all you have to do. Enter buyers FOID number and birthdate. State will issue a transfer number. Done. Keep a record for ten years. Costs nothing. You keep all the proceeds of the sale.
