Any information supplied by any employee or agent of MCR&A, in any form whatsoever, is intended solely as general guidance on the use of online bidding services and the buying and selling of lots at MCR&A sales. REMEMBER: We represent the seller. MCR&A offers no guarantees or warranties-expressed or implied, of any nature whatsoever as it relates to the lots offered at any of our sales. Should there be any remaining manufacturer's warranty, it is up to you as the buyer to obtain satisfaction from the manufacture. Each and every lot at MCR&A Is sold "AS IS, WHERE IS". Where there is an opportunity to preview a sale, we strongly encourage you to attend the preview. Regardless, it is up the buyer to determine the value and condition of each item, even if there is not a preview offered or you failed to attend. Feel free to contact us if you need additional information on a particular item. Ultimately, it is up to the buyer to determine the condition before you bid. Once you bid, you are committed.
We are auctioneers, not authenticators. We do our best to describe as best we can, based on our research, education and overall market experience. It is ultimately up to you, the buyer to determine what you are buying and how it may be used and how much you should pay for it.
Virginia state law requires background checks. If you live locally, this must be preformed before you can take possession of a gun. If you live out of the Roanoke, VA area, a local Federal Firearms Licensee (FFL) will arrange to ship the weapon to a FFL in your town or city. The costs involved in this is entirely up to you to pay as the purchaser. If you live locally, the guns will be available for pick after 12 Noon on Tuesday March 23rd. The background check fee will cost between $10-$25. We will give all the information need to the winner of the auctioned firearm.
We do not have firearms tested before selling them. With today's high-power ammunition, we strongly recommend you have a gunsmith or otherwise qualified firearms expert checkout your firearm purchase before discharging the weapon. There is no opportunity to test-fire a weapon in this sale. Furthermore, we will not allow ammunition to be loaded into a weapon or clip.
