I would take it to a local pawn shop that deals in new and used fire arms theres one on every block here in south Texas . then use that cash to put it down on a fire arm of your choice they may even do a straight trade.

first of all welcome to the forum and stop over in the introductions section and say hello.

trade-in value will be determined by what it is and what condition it's in. so if looking for trade-in value, shop around to get the best deal. every gun dealer will pay different amounts in regards to what it is. what is an item worth? whatever someone is willing to pay for it.

there are sveral ways to go about selling it in a face to face privat sale. but for your own protection make sure whatever firearm it is, it's legal in your state to do so. some states have different laws concerning this.

if it is legal, there isn't any tranfering into their name. it's not like there is a title on it, like a car. if it's legal to do so where you reside to do a private sale of a firearm, the person pays you for it and that's that. i personally like the idea of using my LGS for said sales. i can do it on consignment and let him handle all the details for a small fee. plus the people who visit his store are looking to buy a firearm in the first place. just another suggestion for you.

In my state, and my previous state, face to face with no paperwork was perfectly legal. However! To cover my own butt, I checked ID and carry permit. The carry permit proved to me that the buyer had gone through all the channels sometime in the past four years, and was legal to own and carry a handgun. The ID wad just so I could match up face and name to make sure it was legit. Not required, I did it for my own piece of mind.

If possible I would take the gun to a gun store that takes guns on
consignment. They usually charge about 15% and do all the proper
paperwork when the gun is sold.

Most importantly before you do any of those steps mentioned above... Clean the gun throughly! First impression always lasts! ;).
