Cady Auctions - A really good outfit. Have done business with them in the past. Bought several guns from them, I assume they are still located in Cedar Rapids. Will look them up around the first of the month.

How did you arrive at the total value of $10,000.00 bucks? Auctions can be, and especially at this time, quite surprising as to what some will pay and prices can go for much more than their purchased prices paid previously, cost then.
The list of firearms you presented are all somewhat desired guns and should do very well when held at auction.
That was my conservative estimate only :)

How much use has that Henry Big Boy .44 gotten? I've been looking for one in Iowa for a few years but nobody ever has the .44.

Big Fail

My observations after using the auction service for 10 firearms

  • some of the lower-end guns sold for $100-$200 more than I thought they would
  • a couple of mid-range guns sold for what I expected
  • all of the 5 higher end guns (Colt, Wilson Combat and Dan Wesson) sold for significantly less than what I expected

So... Combine above results with 18% fee and I definitely won't be using an auction service any more

My estimate is that using the auction (vs selling on GunBroker or selling via consignment sale at LGS) cost me at least $2500

Tough lesson

Thanks a million for revisiting and updating this thread. Hopefully, you'll save someone else from having to pay out big bucks to learn this lesson as well.
