Where to sell some gear

I have two Trijicon MRO red dots (one is Patrol version) and two Vortex 3x Magnifiers that I need to sell; I love these optics but my astigmatism has worsened recently and these no longer work for me. Does anyone have suggestions for where to list these?

I’ve seen a new company called Armslist sponsoring several pro 2A channels.

P.s. Armslist may not be new. I don’t really use secondary sources.

The big player here is Gunbroker, of course. I’d start there. Search for the closest examples of what you have, looking for completed listings, to get an idea what they are actually selling for.

If you are a member of any local boards, like a state specific board, look for an exchange or buy/sell/trade section there.

The major old school forums also have an Equipment Exchange or similar, but probably guys don’t like to buy from totally newbs to the forum (probably can’t even post ads if you’re brand new), but if you already have accounts at like ar15.com or m4carbine.net or whatever, that is an option.

Around here we also use https://www.theoutdoorstrader.com/

Armslist is pretty much nationwide. You can also try craigslist, I’ve seen several optics on there as well.

Lots of 2A groups on MeWe. Also since you’re only selling optics, you can use eBay.

You may have some local online gun groups as well.
CT we have ctguntalk.com and a state north is northeastshooters.com for example.

Be a cool idea for USCCA forums to have a classified section, members only! Just a thought!

I know lots of people in my area sell similar things on Facebook Marketplace. I have personally bought a few firearms-related items from people on there.

If you want a larger market its possible to open a sellers account on Amazon and sell used. You dont need a Pro seller account for $40 a month you can sell as an individual for $1 per item plus a Amazon % cut. Sometimes its worth it as you can set the price point a little higher, ebay also has a similar platform.

Couldn’t even get a holster swap thread off the ground here. Have tried. Would be a valuable resource for members. But, here we are.

Sell on auction arms
Buy on GunBroker

I want to thank everyone for the responses; I now have a path forward in “re-homing” these optics.

Yeah, I wanted to see that happen. I was hoping we could get a password protected USCCA verified forum. Was talked alot back then.

I personally have used Tacswap with great success.
