    Most police dept trade ins go back to whatever dealer the dept. buys from to help offset the cost of the new weapons.
    The trade in guns are the usually sold by the dealer to civilians. I'm not aware of a dedicated site for such. But you might google Dept. trade in guns and see what you come up with.

    Joliet- Why would you think it is LEGAL for police departments to sell guns to a private citizen?

    Department trade-ins go back into the supply chain, and are wholesaled thru distributors to dealers.

    J&G Sales does offer some police trade-ins. Check their site or maybe the ad in Shotgun News.

    My buddy says Gunbroker.com is tops for gun trading . Check the rating of anyone you do business with on there though . There have been scammers...

    Be aware of shipping insurance and dealer transfer fees when ordering on line. These can make a deal not so good. Many dealers will not ship to Illinois and California.:eek:

    The bulk of my handgun sales are police trade in's. They are usualy not very pretty, but they are not shot much. ;)
    Take it from someone with 4 decades in LE, most cops only shot when the are required to thus they get carried A LOT and shot very little. :cool:
