You might also advertise it as a F-F deal listing your state, meaning face to face and then you don't have to ship it, the buyer comes to you. Meet in a public place, as I always do. If you ship it go to Wal-Mart and buy 2-3 cheap bath towels and wrap the barrel and the stock individually, one towel for the barrel and 2 for the stock, after you disassemble it, so each component is padded well. That's what I do. Put the two wedges in a large envelope so they don't get lost. Oil the barrel well before wrapping. Then put them together in one box. Do not tell the shipping company what the box contains or you might have a hassle, even tho it is legal to ship a BP gun directly to a buyer. Sometimes you mention "gun" and the receiving clerk goes ballistic. Insure it for full value and send the buyer the tracking number. Forgive me if you know all of this, but some people aren't used to shipping guns. Good luck and let us all know when you list it for sale so we can check the ads. Thanks.
Two Elks- thank you for the info. I’ve never shipped a gun before so your tips are appreciated. Believe me I had ZERO intention of telling the shipping clerk what’s in the box. Lol.
I know I’m going to sell it, it’s just a matter of when I can put up the ad & be prepared to wrap & ship it.

Welcome and good luck with the sell. Just me but having a BP gun around and not shooting it would be unthinkable at my home. Metallic cartridge guns are another one of my interests, too.
