How Does It Work

Email Mike Fransko at or call at 440-804-4450.


Firearms can be shipped to 26314 Center Ridge Road, Westlake, OH 44145


If for any reasons your firearms must be returned to you, return shipping is at your expense.  Modern firearms must be shipped to your FFL dealer who will charge you a fee.


Consignment Sales

When the firearm is received, it will be inspected, photographed, a description written, and it may include an estimated value.  When it is received we will determine which monthly auction it will be listed in.   We take pride in providing our buyers with the information they need to bid; all of which takes time.  So please ship or drop off your firearm as early as possible.


Note:  We do not assume the responsibility to clean your firearms.  As you know,  the better the condition of the firearm as it is photographed, the more value will be perceived by the buyer, therefore a higher payout.


All firearms are sold at our online auctions.  We will initially allow a beginning bid price (Starting Bid) while we establish ourselves as an auction site.   However, if that starting bid is not met, you will be charged a 10% fee of that starting bid and modern firearms will be shipped to your FFL dealer for you to retrieve, where you may be charged an additional fee.


At the completion of the monthly auction in which your item was sold, we will send you a check for the winning bid amount less our 12% commission, within 21 days of the end of that auction.   This fee is considerably less than those charged by national auction houses.


Estate and Private Sales

Wild Wild Westlake is looking for estates and private collectors who desire to sell their collection out right without going through the auction process.  For information email Mike Fransko at or call at 440-804-4450.  Wild Wild Westlake uses the “Blue Book of Gun Values” to determine the market value.
