Item Condition and our Firearm Standards

(last updated on 12/30/2004) Modern Firearm Condition Standards

The following standards were set forth by the for describing the condition of any item sold on our web site. It is up to you to describe in detail in your description the actual condition of the firearm.

Factory New (1) - not previously sold at retail, in the exact same condition as current year factory production.

New Old Stock (2) - brand new condition, never used or resold, but has been in stock for a while, sometimes for years. This usually also means it is not the same as the current year production model, but read the auction description to determine the actual condition.

Used (3) - Everything else. If the item has ever been previously owned, it should be listed as Used, this also includes collectibles.
