I’ve been doing business with the fine folks at Lock Stock and Barrel Investments for several years and they continue to impress me with their professionalism, expertise, and integrity. I’ve sold several firearms through their auction process and have always profited from the experience. Recently I recommended LS&B to a family friend who had a sizable collection she wanted appraised. They came to her home, showed great respect for her late husband’s prized firearms and gave an honest appraisal. Due to the outstanding impression they left with her she chose to dispose of his collection though LS&B and has thanked me profusely for putting her in touch with them. For those who may not be firearm savvy and have acquired firearms through inheritance or circumstance and don’t know what they have or what to do with them, give Lock Stock and Barrel a call. You’ll be in good hands.

What a great experience! I was persuaded by the numerous strong Yelp reviews, and its impressive auction site, to visit Lock Stock & Barrel when I wanted to dispose of some vintage and antique firearms that had been in the family for years, as well as a couple of more recent guns. Dan, the company’s manager of acquisitions, graciously spent the better part of an hour discussing the various pieces with me and explaining details I’d never been aware of. Having watched their online auctions, I’m confident Lock Stock & Barrel will do an excellent job preparing the guns and presenting them to a market large enough to achieve fair prices. And I suspect the results will be significantly better than if I’d turned the firearms over to a standard gun retailer. Considering the knowledge, enthusiasm and professionalism of the staff, and how pleasant they made the whole process, using Lock Stock & Barrel was an excellent decision. I’d definitely recommend them for selling personal firearms or military memorabilia, especially if you’re dealing with collectible guns whose potential value you’re unsure of.

These guys really know their stuff. They are great at buying and selling guns and accessories but they are also very knowledgeable about all things guns.
I would recommend them any time you are looking for something special or need to sell guns you may have just inherited and have no idea what to do with them.
Definitely would recommend them.

If you live in Southern California, particularly the Los Angeles area consider yourself REALLY lucky to have these folks near you. The folks at LSB are terrific. Customer satisfaction is their primary goal. If you have firearm collections to sell, or you want to find great guns to buy, this is the place. It is NOT a retail store…you buy and sell product at auction but you can inspect before you bid if you stop by. The staff is extremely knowledgeable and give you great advice. I have sold some really fine firearms and related material through them and have come out much better than going the gun store consignment route. Same goes for purchasing. LSB goes through great pains to present everything they sell with such detail and history there is no question about what you are buying. They are quoted by the NRA at times in their articles due to LSB’s stellar reputation nationally. Truly, this place is a treasure. Not sure? Go an meet them. Friendliest folks in town.

An outstanding company. We had several fire arms from an estate. Valuing and selling is difficult if you don’t know what to do. By the way, do NOT go to a general gun store, we had one store in west LA offer one fifth of what we received from LSB.

I was able to go to the offices in Simi of LSB, very nice operation. They give you a valuation, explain their listing process, if you accept, they do all the cleaning, testing, marketing, and completing the transaction (transfer paperwork).
And then pay you promptly!
This business is in the top 99% of all businesses with whom I’ve ever interacted. If you want to deal with great, trustworthy people who will get you the fairest price for your firearms, this is this place. I’m so thankful another local gun shop pointed me in their direction. Don’t hesitate to reach out to them for the best advise you’ll ever get.
