We Buy Guns

At Lakeshore Guns we strive to make the buying and selling process as easy as possible. We are a Licensed FFL Dealer and our Brick and Mortar Business and has been in Business since 2007. We Offer Two Options for selling your used gun. We are also one of the only dealers who also travels to purchase gun collections!


How it Works

OPTION 1 - Bring your gun to our retail location and we will provide you with a value and complete the transfer.

OPTION 2 - Submit your gun information using our online form. Once you submit your information, we will respond back within 1 Business Day with an offer. Once an agreement is reached, we will send a box and label and you ship us the gun and payment will be made within 24hrs.




Our Team

We know guns and their values. The owner Aaron Sybesma has been in the Firearm Retail Business for over 20 years. We pride ourselves in being upfront and honest with our pricing. We base values on the current market as well as a vast number of past sales. When it comes to researching unique guns, we have a network of collectors from all over the US as well as internationally.



We make the process easy! Once an agreement is reached, we will send you a box with a prepaid label and detailed instructions on how to ship the gun to us! We provide you with instructions and drop off locations for the best shipping option.

We are one of the only retailers that travels to purchase large collections. We have traveled across the United States to purchase collections and have numerous references available upon request. If you have a large collection please call us at (269) 857-2248 to discuss the process!

Lakeshore Guns covers all shipping expenses related to getting the gun to our retail location.

We are a Federally Licensed Dealer and all paperwork can be completed online. To get started please fill out our submission form by clicking here (Call to action button)

Check the frame or receiver for the number (Can Include Letters as Well). Not every gun has serial numbers so please contact us if you are unable to locate it. Any guns which have a serial number that has been removed can not be purchased.

Please take any photos that may be helpful to determine value. Please make sure to identify any damage or wear on your firearm. In order for us to provide you with the best offer, we need to be able to determine condition.

Guns can only be purchased from the legal owner. You will be required to provide a valid form of identification and attest to ownership before we purchase any firearm.

We purchase all types of good quality firearms. Guns can be modern or antique as long as they have not been altered of modified. Unsure if we would be interested? Feel free to reach out by giving us a call, we would be happy to discuss any gun your interested in selling.

Any person who purchases a gun from Lakeshore Guns will be required to pass a federal background check before the gun can be transferred. None of your personal information will ever be shared with a future buyer of your firearm.

We live by the motto treat others how you would like to be treated. We provide every customer with a retail value for your firearm that we anticipate to get when we sell it. For the past 13 years of owning our store we have built a reputation based on honesty and integrity. We don’t try and hide the fact that our goal is to offer you a fair price and turn around and sell the gun for a reasonable profit. Our customers understand the value in dealing with a reputable gun dealer and also know that we have to make a profit to be open for years to come. Our goal is to make the process of selling a gun safe and easy for everyone involved.

Our submission page is only intended for people who are serious about selling their firearm. Because of the fact it takes time for our staff to go through each submission we ask that you only contact us if you are ready to sell your gun. If you are interested in a firearm appraisal for insurance or personal purposes please contact us for more information.

On rare occasions a gun will not pass our inspection after receiving the firearm. Reasons can include the condition not being as described or the gun has been altered. This can be prevented by being as detailed in your description as possible. In the event that the gun fails inspection the buyer will be charged a $50.00 fee as well as be responsible for return shipping. However for example it is discovered that a part is missing that may have been overlooked by the seller, we will offer to replace the part and deduct the cost of the part from the payment. Very few guns ever fail inspection and if you are unsure of a potential issue with your gun please call us before sending or accepting an offer.

This is always an option, but there is a lot of risk. There is currently no way for a private citizen to conduct a background check and determine if someone can legally own a firearm. If your gun is used in a crime you may be held liable. Many states also require registration on firearms and failure to register the sale of your firearm may result in legal troubles for you and your family.

Our team is happy to assist you. We offer both phone and email support. Our phone number is (269) 857-2248 or email us by clicking here (Insert Call To Action).
