seems like they have some really nice pieces. has anyone purchased from them before? Are they california friendly? (i.e. willing to ship to a california 01 FFL for C&R handguns)?

i'd be interested in hearing your experiences.

Remember you will be charged a buyer's premium

What is a Buyer's Premium, how much is it? - A Buyer's Premium is a percentage that the successful bidder must pay in addition to the hammer price for each lot. The reason for a buyer’s premium is to cover expenses of putting on the auction, photography, describing, catalog production, marketing, etc…without it the auction would not be possible. Our buyer's premium is 17.5%, or discounted to 15% for cash or approved check. So, if you won a lot that hammered for $100, your total amount due for that lot would be $115 if you pay by check, $117.50 if you pay with credit card.
