How do I buy on GunsInternational.com?
We are an Online Classified Gun Web site that enjoys tremendous success in selling guns as well as gun parts & accessories for individuals and dealers. If you can legally own a gun you can purchase a gun or gun parts and accessories from one of GunsInternational.com’s sellers.  All sales are direct between the buyer and seller.

From GunsInternational.com's home page you can access all of the guns and gun part & accessory items for sale on GunsInternational.com.  Browse the categories on the home page and when you find a category that you are interested in, click the category name.  Now a preview page will open with a preview of each listing available. When browsing guns in the preview pages for sale on GunsInternational.com you may click the photo, title or the link "click for more info", which is highlighted in blue on the gun listing that you are interested in.  This will bring up the entire listing with all the details the seller has written on the gun, as well as extra photos they may have entered.  Within the entire listing there is a complete description and photo previews. These photo previews enlarge by clicking on them.  Once a photo is enlarged you may continue to click the enlarged photo and it will continue to display the rest of the photos on this gun that the seller has added to this listing. Included within the detail listing is complete Sellers information and the "Contact Seller" form.  In the contact seller form you may fill in any questions of the gun, make an offer or ask any delivery questions on the gun. Fill in the code that appears just above the send button. Why do we have that pain in the neck code to fill in?  To stop unsavory people on the internet from using our site to send spam and scam mail. Once you have completed the form simply click send. If you have completed this before the sytem will remember you and you need not complete a code simply check the box that says I am not a robot. If you are a registered member and signed in the Contact Seller form with automatically fill in your name, phone and email address.  The seller may have listed their phone number in their profile and if so feel free to contact the seller direct. GunsInternational.com is strictly a classified listing service and the transaction is between you and the seller.
   
How do I search for better results?
We have three separate searches available on GunsInternational.com: 
  • The first is the Quick Search box located on all pages at the top in the Navy Blue navigational bar. In the Quick Search you can narrow using the drop down of Rifle, Shotgun, Handgun, Revolver, Pistol, Gun Parts (Although this is not necessary). You may enter multiple criteria i.e. Browning Diana 410 The search will return All exact matches.  The exact wording must be present within the listing to be returned in the search results. You may wish to leave out punctuation or abbreviations as they may not match the text of the listing.  i.e use 410 versus .410 or 410 ga. or 410 gauge.
  • The Advanced Search both mini and detailed.  The Mini Advanced Search is available by hovering your mouse over the Advanced Search text next to the Quick Search. The Mini Advance Search will drop down.  To access the detailed Advanced Search double click on the Advanced Search text on the Navy Blue navigational bar or click the "Show me more options". Within the Advanced Search you may, as in the example above, fill in Keyword as you would in the General Search.  In addition in advanced search you may also search within a category, location or within price parameters etc.
  • The third search is our Saved Search. To create a Saved Search you must be registered. You access the Saved Search under Buyer Tools on the home page. The Saved Search is the same Search technology as the Advanced Search but the criteria can be saved and run at your leisure without having to fill it in over and over.
Search results are drawn from the title and descriptions within the listings.  Many listers abbreviate and magnum would not bring back Mag for example.

What is the return policy of buying guns on GunsInternational.com?
 
Return Policy Guidelines of GunsInternational.com  Unless the buyer and seller agree to modify, the return policy is three (3) calendar days from the day the item(s) are received by the buyer or delivered to the FFL acting for the buyer. Exemptions are a new gun, a gun placed on layaway and for used guns clearly marked in the listing as No Return.  The item may be returned for any reason, but the buyer must notify the seller within the three (3) calendar day inspection period.  The buyer must start the return within the next four (4) calendar days to receive a complete refund, less all shipping and FFL charges.  In other words shipping must start within one week of receipt of the item(s).  The return shipping must be of equal shipping level, including insurance i.e.. Priority, Express, Blue Label etc.  The return item MUST be in the same condition as when shipped to the buyer.  This is an inspection period only, a gun is not to be fired or disassembled.  Sellers written permission is required to allow the buyer to take down a takedown model during the inspection period. Upon the receipt and inspection of the returned gun, the seller agrees to issue a prompt refund. Recommendation: Confirm purchase with all details via the Contact Seller form within the listing and print out the listing for your records. Any modification of the 3 day return policy must be in writing by both buyer and seller.  

The shipper of the gun or gun part who does not purchase insurance accepts the risk of damage or loss, be it the seller shipping initially or the buyer returning. 
In the event a firearm or other purchase arrives damaged in shipping, the shipper and receiver must cooperate fully to file a damage claim with the carrier. Typically, the firearm and packing is inspected at the receivers address.   However, the shipper is responsible to file the claim.  No action should be taken until the carrier has instructed on how to proceed.  Neither shipper nor receiver will impede the claim.  Refunds are not contingent upon the claim. In the event the buyer receives a damaged firearm, the seller will not wait for the claim to be processed to issue the buyer a full refund.  In the event the firearm is damaged when a buyer is returning a firearm to the seller they will need to proceed with the claim for their refund.
How can I check on a seller that I would like to buy a gun from?
GunsInternational.com is committed to its user’s personal and financial information protection.  We utilize high levels of internet security to protect your private personal and financial information.  While a buyer being defrauded by a seller on our site is exceedingly rare, you must realize that you are dealing over the internet and as such take the necessary precautions. You must gain a comfort level with who you are dealing with on the site.
If they are a FFL, ask for their FFL number and check under our FFL links on the ATF Online EZ check system, that they are currently registered.

You may also go to www.anywho.com  and perform a reverse number look up to make sure they are who they say they are.   While it is not our policy we would recommend all sales be confirmed via telephone if you have any questions as to the identity or the seller. Be suspicious of any seller that refuses to talk to you on the phone.
Be sure to clarify the seller's return policy. Any modification of the 3 day GunsInternational.com return policy must be in writing by both buyer and seller.

Prepayment for the gun is usually required.  Be sure to follow the sellers instructions and if possible for your protection pay by credit card and if not pay by US Postal Order for your protection.  Be sure to include all of your shipping information, as well as your phone number.
 
 
How do I legally get a gun shipped to me?
In almost all cases, with the exception of antiques, the transfer of a firearm requires the assistance of a local Federal Firearms Licensed Dealer (FFL).  More than likely you would need to arrange for a local FFL to accept the gun for you and to complete the transfer.  If you do not have a local FFL you may use our FFL search to find one in your area that would be willing to complete the transfer. Fees vary widely for this service so you may wish to check with a few.
On the left side of home page in the red buttons there is a button "Gun Links" , click this button and access the link State by State Laws that will assist you with accessing all the applicable state and federal laws.  Buyers and Sellers are required to know and comply with all applicable local, state and federal laws.
