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.
