The choice of firearms for sale will depend on the current stock of the dealers.
Some dealers only sell "new" firearms but most deal in both new and secondhand pieces. Some dealers specialize in antique collectible pieces, others are strong in rifles, some prefer shotguns, others target pistols and others prefer more modern firearms.
What is certain is that the variety will be endless.
From flintlocks to the latest centrefire rifles.
