We Buy, Trade and Sell Used and Collectible Firearms, Gun Collections, Antiques, Jewelry, Fine Collectibles

Securing the maximum value for your guns, antiques, and fine collectibles at The Sporting Shoppe Trading Post is a simple and profitable experience.  You will expect what we will deliver: fairness and honesty in every deal.

We can do business in three different ways – each option with its unique benefits.

  1. Outright Sale to The Sporting Shoppe– This approach provides instant cash and peace of mind as the transaction will be completed in minutes after the item(s) are evaluated by our expert buyer based on established current values.
  2. Consignment Sale – This approach will normally net the most money for your items, but payment is forthcoming only after sales are completed.  There is a minimum broker’s fee of $25.00 for a consignment sale.
  3. Trade-in – The Sporting Shoppe accepts trades toward the purchase of our existing inventory including new firearms. The trade prices are based on established current values. This is a fast and simple way to upgrade your collection.

If you live within driving distance of Richmond, RI, the best approach is to bring your item(s) to our location (see map under “Contact”) so that we can evaluate them quickly and help determine the best option for you.

If an in-person visit to The Sporting Shoppe isn’t immediately practical, please call us at 401-539-4653. We can help you in various ways to simplify the chosen process, from estimating the value of your item(s) via photographic inspection, to providing a shipping box with a convenient pre-addressed UPS call tag. (A UPS call tag sends a representative to your home to pick up your items.)

For more sizable collections, arrangements can be made for The Sporting Shoppe buyer to visit your location.

Please use the form below to get started, and feel free to call us with any questions you may have.

  • Please photograph your items from a variety of angles, making sure that you include views of identifying marks, signings, unique elements, serial numbers, imperfections (if any), etc. The images will be examined carefully by one of our in-house experts. We will then put a value on your item and e-mail you with a quote. This process will take no more than two business days from receipt of your information. If you inform us that our offer is satisfactory, a check will be in the mail to you on the next business day.
  • Please upload a few photos.
