Gun Consignment

At Two Alpha Auctions, our goal is to get you the highest value for your gun(s). Let us put our collective 30-year history of auctioning firearms to work for you. We invite you to learn how to sell your guns through us.

Consignment is where the owner of an item pays the seller a small fee to locate a buyer. We handle all of the details, from advertising, securely packing and shipping to the buyer. After the sale is complete, the owner (“consignor”) is sent a check for the net proceeds.

We auction handguns, long guns, shotguns, muzzleloaders, and rifles. We do auction items that are regulated by the National Firearms Act, like suppressors and full automatic firearms. Our live auctions also feature auctioning of sportsman-related items like ammunition, gun safes, holsters, scopes, reloading equipment, swords, knives, and bows.

What's my Gun Worth?

One of the first questions we get from a potential seller is “What’s are my guns worth?” We provide pre-auction evaluation of your firearms at no cost to you. Our gun experts have decades of collective experience and have evaluated tens of thousands of firearms. Some common guns can be evaluated over the phone but other items require a visual inspection.

Transportation

While we prefer that consignors bring their firearms to us, we can arrange to pick-up if you have a large collection or have mobility issues.

Photography

We take upwards of a dozen pictures or more of most firearms so prospective bidders can see exactly what they are bidding on: The good, the bad, and the ugly! We welcome bidders to contact us if they need additional photographs or information.

Reserve

As a general rule, we do not recommend that sellers place reserves on their firearms and there are many reasons why. However, let’s talk about it! If it’s right for you and/or a particular firearm and it doesn’t sell, we charge 15% of the highest bid.

Marketing

Marketing for specialized auctions like firearms requires a marketing plan using a wide range of advertising outlets. Sure, running ads in local papers is a part of that plan. But there’s so much more. At Two Alpha Auctions, we advertise in trade magazines, by direct mail to our vast mailing list of firearm enthusiasts, email blasts, word-of-mouth, on our website, on our bidding platform, and client phone calls.

Safe & Sound

Last, but certainly not least, your firearms are secured safely with us! Our building is alarmed and monitored 24/7 and we are fully insured against anything that might happen.
