So just to be clear, let's say I have a gun broker auction with full disclaimer that the buyer must make sure it is legal to own in their state and I will not ship until their payment (check/money order) clears will full funds available to me

It is 100% legal for me to ship the firearm to their FFL, correct? Or do I have to locate a local FFL to ship it out for me?
I'm only used to selling FTF. I'd really like to clear out about 12 firearms fairly quickly and not get raped by pawn shop/local gun shop lowballs

Depends on the FFL. Some won't accept shipments from private parties. Most of the time you are in the clear though is my understanding.

Edit: What are you selling? :secret:

Pretty sure it's all long guns, but I am in the market for a reasonably priced .45

Q: May a nonlicensee ship a firearm through the U.S. Postal Service?
A nonlicensee may not transfer a firearm to a non-licensed resident of another State. A nonlicensee may mail a shotgun or rifle to a resident of his or her own State or to a licensee in any State. The Postal Service recommends that long guns be sent by registered mail and that no marking of any kind which would indicate the nature of the contents be placed on the outside of any parcel containing firearms. Handguns are not mailable. A common or contract carrier must be used to ship a handgun.
[18 U.S.C. 1715, 922(a)(3), 922(a)(5) and 922 (a)(2)(A)]

Q: May a nonlicensee ship a firearm by common or contract carrier?
A nonlicensee may ship a firearm by a common or contract carrier to a resident of his or her own State or to a licensee in any State. A common or contract carrier must be used to ship a handgun. In addition, Federal law requires that the carrier be notified that the shipment contains a firearm and prohibits common or contract carriers from requiring or causing any label to be placed on any package indicating that it contains a firearm.
[18 U.S.C. 922(a)(2)(A), 922(a) (3), 922(a)(5) and 922(e), 27 CFR 478.31 and 478.30]

a short list of ones i had in mind:

my yugo AK underfolder
mini 30 stainless/walnut
RRA/PSA AR-15 build
Excellent/very good numbers matching M38 w/blonde wood
same condition M44 with slightly darker wood

basically ones that have low round counts that just gather dust. i hate having guns to "collect"

and what's a fair rate to charge for shipping?

think i could get away with a flat rate of $35 (without the added cost of insurance, of course. I'd add that depending on the price of the weapon)
