Yeah, I saw that one too. I don't think it was a typo. If you read through the notes on that auction, it says the price is going up by $1000 later if it doesn't sell. I don't think that person really understands how commerce works.
Hmm, if it doesn’t sell when it’s priced an order of magnitude high, we’ll price it even higher! That’ll learn ‘em!

These are not the firearms you're looking for.

lol, right! Just for your amusement, here's that particular ad:



Wait a minute!!! I recognize that gun as the one Theodore Roosevelt carried ashore at Pearl Harbor while the Germans were bombing the hell outa it!!

1. Make sure you understand how much the fees are.
2. Make sure you add enough to cover freight, or charge actual.
3. Make sure you know whether or not to collect sales tax.
4. Make sure to only accept cashier check, or postal money order. Let either of them clear for several days before shipping your firearm.
5. Be careful shipping to "gun unfriendly" states---especially if high cap mags are involved.

If cashiers check, I usually call the issuing bank to verify validity. If postal money order, you can verify it online.

Just about any gun I've sold has either been to a friend or here on OSA. I just figured I'd give Gunbroker a try. Don't be disappointed!
Sometimes you have to try. I've had firearms I've all but tried to give away here and Armslist, only to have no takers. Threw it on GB and it was gone like that.

I've thought about listing a couple I have there, but the thought of boxing, shipping and dealing with the FFL turns me away.

I can understand that. I'm currently on the hunt for a box big enough to hold the factory Remington box inside of it. FedEx says that the box the firearm is shipped in cannot have any labeling on it showing that it is a firearm, so the hunt is on for a large sized rifle box. Aside from that, everything needed to process and ship the order seems easy enough.

Sir, step away from the toolbox!
If you can find a really big box (like an appliance came in), you might be able to measure the size you need, cut the cardboard accordingly and then fold it inside out (so plain cardboard is facing out).
Then put the factory Remington box inside and tape it up really, really good maybe?
Just guessing at a solution.
