My department has some UMP45s that we’d like to sell or trade. Can anyone recommend a good place to do so or know of an agency that may like to purchase them?

How about Rueben Mendiola https://dealernfa.com/

You should reach out to a local FFL that deals in NFA firearms, or multiple FFLs if you have them.

I've always been a fan of doing business locally if at all possible.

UMP45s will be post-samples.

Not many transferables left out there.

If it's not against any applicable property disposal rules, I'd have the agency sell them directly by auctioning them individually on GunBroker.com since that'll get them the most money.

It may be a requirement to give public notice of the property auction(s).

Our state has an exception for property traded to a gun dealer, but the agency won't get as much value going that route.
(It does not require any public notice however.)

Any SOT purchasing them will need to provide a LE demo letter (from another agency) for you to forward to ATF along with the Form 5.

If the agency trades them through a dealer, normally they'll be paid upfront (or receive "store credit") and the guns will stay with the agency. As new buyers are found (by the dealer) the individual F5's get submitted (with the trade-in dealer acting as an intermediary) until they're all gone. Might take months. Normally they do not transfer in one batch to the dealer the agency trades with. Because of an ATF limitation on transfers, most SOT buyers can only receive a maximum of 2. There's no quantity limitation for a government transferee.

The CLEO (or his designee) must sign each F5 and they cannot be done in eForms unfortunately, but they can be emailed as a PDF.

New Frontier Armory took in a bunch of my departments MP5’s for a direct trade of new Colt M4 select fires and G17’s. Everyone in SWAT got brand new toys.

So far we have gotten quotes from two dealers/distributors. One of them was pretty fair but I thought there may be certain dealers out there who were known for giving the best deals on such a thing. I appreciate all of the suggestions and will look into them.

Post-samples are frequently worth more as parts kits... or just parted out and receivers cut etc to demil.

Just a thought.

We were going to do that with our UMP40s, but decided against it because the county will fuck us out of that money with next years budget cuts.

Drop them off at the nearest gun buy-back.
