Best consignment rate I've seen is 10% from GB seller Eastwoods Arms. And, his presentations are among the best of them, like Keystone Arms, who charges 15%.
Best way to sell a gun is to me, cheaply.

I just emailed you from ycrs927.
My LGS takes 30% on consignment sale. But he also has overhead that I don’t so I’m not judgeing.
I have only ever sold through calguns to local people and met at the LGS/FFL. No way I’d give a 10% let alone 30% vig.
Yeah, I never understood this, either. Even guns that I really like, I have zero problems letting them go, once I decided "It's your turn to go, buddy". Zero regrets. No look back.
Skins, I'd say "post it in the classifieds here." I'd be willing to bet that more than one member will see this thread and head right on over to Classifieds to "help you out and do them some good too."

Post it here, flyer in gun range or on a local forum. GB is good for exposure and sounds good since you have a FFL to ship. Consignment rates around me vary between 10 and 15%. 20% if they advertise online.

I'll second VA Gun Trader for a local FTF sale.

I've sold several guns through classifieds. It's the easiest and most profitable but be very careful if you go this route. Several years ago I listed a pistol on armslist and the buyer gave me counterfeit money. $440 in fake $20 bills. There wasn't anything about the guy that made me suspicious and there was nothing about the money that made me think it was fake. I went to deposit it in the bank and Suprise! The bank manager said it's counterfeit and they have to send it to the secret service. The serial #s were all the same. I never thought about looking at that and I thought that maybe I'd come across a fake bill someday but never that many.
All of the people I've sold to were nice, honest people, except for that one thief.

Thanks guys for the help. I'm either going to list here or VAGunTrader. No bites I'll do GB.

Same. Metal, wood, and plastic in various designs.
I speak jive.
With no paperwork.
I had a couple new rifles on there last year that wouldn't even get retail. I put them on there last week and watched them both ignite bidding wars.
CYA, FFL - FFL transfer. You don't get a medal for arming a dirtbag.
Best way to sell a gun? Don't.

Know how to do à face to face transaction. There are great ways ( so that all goes well and your butt is covered), And there are very bad ways to do them. Be safe.

I'm not sure I want to do FTF, you never know who your getting involved with, and I don't want my wife to be involved as my backup.

I bought a Sig X5 once. Met the guy in the Library parking lot on the far side next to the police station since I was carrying lots of cash.

Several of us are local and can probably help you sell it, either through our network of friends or co-workers. Many have purchased through or used the services of our local sigforum FFL who resides in Loudon to help do the transfer.

classified here, or VA gun trader
15% is a good rate for consignments,
when I do them, I charge 20% for non NFA stuff, usually negotiate if I am brokering a MG
FTF is easy, did a few between licenses,
do up a bill of sale,
ask for ID,, and or CCW, if they balk, walk,
public place, etc etc,
