Why did you create this website?

Guns New Mexico Classifieds was created to provide New Mexico locals with a beautiful, functional and free place to buy, sell and trade their firearms, weapons and related gear. Ebay and Craigslist have never allowed firearms ads and Facebook has now recently banned personal weapons sales too. Along with other local websites using outdated software and forcing people to pay for ads, it was time for a change. The New Mexico weapons community deserves much better!

Do we need to use a FFL to transfer a firearm for a person-to-person transaction?

YES! As of 2019, all person-to-person firearm sales now require a background check to be completed in the state of New Mexico. For that matter, we always recommend meeting at your preferred FFL to complete the transaction. Note that this does not apply to parts and accessories, it only applies to items deemed a “firearm” by law.

No. At this time, we only allow items to be listed for trade if they are directly related to categories offered on our website.

How do I get the "Verified Seller" badge on my account?

There are a couple different ways you can become a "Verified Seller" on the platform.

  1. The best method is to request that your successful buyers send us an email reporting that they had a great transaction with you. They will need to know your email address and/or username in the system in order for us to identify your account.

  2. We may also mark certain accounts as verified if they have been in good standing for a long time (no abuse reports) and also those that have paid to feature their ads using verified billing information.
