The Equipment Exchange operates on honesty, integrity, and Member feedback. If you cannot handle deals in an appropriate manner, do not post here.All items listed for sale or trade should be described honestly. Do not attempt to represent replica (AirSoft, etc.) parts/products or cheap knockoffs as if they were Name Brand/OEM equipment. Do not knowingly sell defective products without acknowledging the defect. You must handle your transactions in a timely fashion.
The following rules are intended for Members and Team Members of AR15.COM only. Industry Partners and Dealers are subject to a different set of rules which can be read on the menu below. Please read this entire page before you start using the Equipment Exchange. Breaking any of the rules listed below will lead to an automatic account termination.
Industry Partners & Dealers must pay a fee to advertise in the Equipment Exchange. Selling items in large quantities, possessing an FFL, or manufacturing items also constitutes being a dealer - even if you do not own a business.
Please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in selling here.
Sellers: Be 100% sure that you want to sell the item and are satisfied with the selling price. If you back out of a deal* AFTER a purchase or trade agreement has been made, your account will be locked.
Buyers: Be 100% sure that you can financially afford to purchase an item before offering to do so. If you back out of a deal* AFTER agreeing to purcahse or trade an item, your account will be locked.
*Note: If you are unsure about whether or not a deal has been struck, Instant Message an Equipment Exchange moderator or Staff Member for clarification. They will advise you on how to proceed.
In case of a dispute, the seller has to provide proof that the item was delivered. Delivery confirmation (such as from USPS, FedEx, USPS, etc.) provides that proof for most cases. If you are not 100% sure of the person you're dealing with, then signature confirmation might be an extra step to take but is not absolutely required in case of a dispute. Furthermore, there is always the chance that the item does not arrive in the condition stated, the contents were damaged or even missing altogether. To protect the seller, insurance is highly recommended but not required. The seller should be willing to work things out with the buyer in case there are issues.
There will always be exceptions to the rule and we will treat each case on an individual basis while making every attempt to be fair and impartial.
