Consigning Your Firearms
If you are seeking to sell your firearms, then Nevada Estate Firearms (NVEF) is ideal for you. Whether new or used we can either purchase your firearm from you or help you put it on consignment. We utilize various websites and sales outlets to advertise your firearms.
For Nevadan's who recently inherited weapons in an estate or because of death, we can help you with the process to transfer possession so its quick, easy, legal, and fully documented.
When ready to take the next step in putting your firearms in consignment we will make an appointment in our shop or we will come to your location at a time that is convenient for both of us.
We do not accept all consignments because, depending on your firearms, they may be a more appropriate dealer for you to go with. After all, this is your firearm and we want what is best for you.
No Haggle Fees
Because you want to sell your firearms quickly we have a simple no haggling process. Each firearm will have a consignment fee of 10% of its sale price when sold.
NVEF will pay you within 10 days, once we have received the funds from the buyer(s). All payments will be made by business check.

Returns / Unsold Items
In cases where you wish to attain your firearms or they simply cannot be sold, NVEF will return them to you. However, we can only legally return firearms after the Consignor completes all necessary forms as if they were purchasing the firearms, pass NICS background check, and pay all transfer fees for each firearm.
If consignor fails to complete the documentation within 30 days or fails the NICS background check then NVEF must legally retain the firearms. NVEF will provide a 30-day grace period for the Consignor to remedy the situation but will legally own the firearms if not resolved.
