How to Make an Offer on a Gun


Many of the guns listed for sale on Guns.com allow you to make an offer on them. This means that there may be an opportunity for you to buy that gun at a price that is lower than the listed price by making us an offer on it. Here are some frequently asked questions to help guide you through the offer process:

Frequently Asked Questions

  • To make an offer, simply click the "Make an Offer" button on a used gun listing if it appears. Then, enter the amount you'd like to offer and click submit. The seller will then have 24 hours to consider your offer (and any others they may hav received on that gun) and either accept, decline, or make a counteroffer. If they make a counteroffer, you will have the opportunity to accept or decline. You will only be allowed to make a single counteroffer, after which you will not be allowed to negotiate on that item for 30 days.
  • Yes, you can make an offer on many used guns listed on the site. Oftentimes Guns.com is willing to take a reduced price from an interested customer.
  • No, you can only make an offer on used guns. New gun pricing is often controlled by the Manufacturer, so we are unable to accept offers.
  • If you make an offer less than 70% of the retail price, you will be automatically rejected, as most sellers have a minimum amount they are willing to sell the gun for. The majority of accepted offers fall in the 80-95% range, but remember that it is up to each seller to decide how much they are willing to accept for any gun.
  • Once you've reached an agreement on the price of a gun, it will be added to your shopping cart. You will still need to checkout to buy the gun. Until you do so, others may come in and buy it at a higher price.
