Hello everyone. I am not exactly new to the firearms game, but I'm rather new to purchases and owning fire arms. I would like for someone to either give a few pointers, give a link, or just a page long lesson on what to look for on weapons.

This should get moved to Introductions in a bit, so Welcome to the FTF!

Here's one Impact Guns Home Plenty to look at here, but you have to decide what purpose you intend to apply the weapon to, then which one you want to buy based upon that purpose.

Well there are all sorts of things to look for when purchasing a firearm. Some of the more important things to look for are how it feels when you hold it or shoulder it, does the action work without problems, how the trigger pull is, does the action lock up solidly, do all the features work properly, and ect.

One big thing is to make sure the firearm has a serial number.

You want to make sure you examine every aspect of the firearm you can. I've so far run into a few firearms that either a feauture didn't work or the action didn't work properly.

By God, You're right!! Guess the thread title set my noob neuron on Welcome.

Why don't you tell us what firearms you have interest in or what you intend to do with the weapon before we venture on into defining every firearm made since the blunderbust.

There is a guideline on buying used revolvers, if that is of help. ?
