If you think used guns should be ignored due to a bit of wear and tear, then you have to think one more time. Gun manufacturers convince a lot of people that they should buy only new weapons. However, it’s not always true.
With a bit of maintenance, used firearms may last thousands of shots, if not hundreds of thousands. Some guns are being sold because of technical defects, while others are being sold because the owner wanted more space in his safe or something like that. When buying a used gun in good condition, you can save more than 20% compared to the cost of a brand new gun.
Buying a used rifle, you should pay attention to the last 2 inches of the barrel. Hunters often only fire their rifle once or twice a season, which burns the oil from the barrel and leaves it exposed to the elements. If the weapon is not cleaned and oiled before it is put back into the safe, the last two inches can become rusty and pitted.
When choosing a rifle with a wooden stock, you should make sure the wood doesn't warp. In addition, you should check for nicks on the crown or end of the barrel, which can significantly affect accuracy.
Used Pistol Guns
If you want to buy a used pistol gun, make sure all safety devices are fully functional. For grip safety, pull the trigger without pulling the safety device to see if it works and for thumb safety. Check the barrel for bulges, rust, pitting, and uneven wear. Rings inside the barrel are a bad sign. Also, make sure the muzzle end of the barrel is not too worn or damaged.
Make sure the chamber is properly aligned with the barrel and there is no play in the cylinder, especially when the gun is cocked. The trigger should work properly: you cannot pull it when the weapon is cocked. Check a revolver for wear and tear. If it looks beat up, it may indicate that it has not been taken care of properly.
