Has anyone ever used Hessney's Gun Auctions in Geneve to sell any firearms? If, so, did you realize decent prices for the sales?
What percent premium do they take from the sale? I emailed them for some information a few days ago, but haven't heard anything back yet. Are they OK to deal with or not? A friend undergoing some personal problems has about a dozen firearms to sell & this seems like a good way to go, Yes or No, what say you, brothers?

I haven't been to that one. Every time i see a gun at an auction it sells for more than it's worth.

I don't know how they do it there but typically there is a 10% buyers fee added to the final auction price. That's how the auction house makes there money. Not sure if they take a cut of bid price also.

They don't sell with reserve prices but will pass on offers if things don't get a decent opening bid. They have gun & sporting goods auctions scheduled for
