Did you think you got a fair price?

Nope they never offer much for trade ins. Got some great deals from the used rack like a Remington 760 carbine in .280 for $249. The gentleman in the gun library said they priced it that low because it's not a desirable caliber in that platform...... I responded with I'll take it.

No, they don't pay anything.

I took a handgun in and they said they'd give me $200. I didn't bite. Then I sold it on Gumbroker for $350.

What Cabelas offers for used guns isn't unusual. Many stores do the same. New guns have very slim margins, and they can make more money on a used gun.

Re: Sell your guns at Cabela's?

them an gander are the same way..
they pick over every little flaw and nickle and dime you to the lowest book value they can get .. then they take another 20-30 % off of it and that is there mark up value they say..
then pending on the hard to sell value is even less..
then they make it up big time pending on what it is... unless a member of the staff wants it then in turn its barley marked up for them...
god i missed them days lol

Only good deal ever got in place was on a cross bow. Every gun on their used rack way over priced.
