Coates Guns LLC was originally founded in 1993 as Mike's Guns in Corydon, Iowa. We are a small veteran-owned & operated business with many years of experience in the firearms industry.
We buy, sell, trade, pawn, transfer, and consign new & used firearms, silencers, ammunition, and accessories. If we do not have the item you are looking for on our shelves, chances are we can get it.
Coates Guns was one of the very first Class III SOT Dealers in Iowa - for three years before the Hearing Protection Act was passed in 2016 - and already has all of the knowledge, inventory, connections, and assistance you are wanting for your silencer purchases!
We have recently started taking online orders for firearms and silencers, and are always looking for new ways to better-serve our customers. We welcome any comments or questions you may have!
You can shop right here with us using our online store and secure checkout system. All orders must ship to a verified FFL or SOT, or be picked up locally. Some out of stock items can be backordered to make sure you get them as soon as they are available. We assist all local silencer customers with their ATF Form 4 submission.
We are also partnered with SilencerShop.com to give you access to an even greater selection of silencers. You can order directly from their website and your order will ship to our shop. SilencerShop will also assist you with your ATF Form 4 submission. We can also place your order for you if you prefer to only deal locally.
We offer basic gunsmithing services such as firearm cleaning & inspection, optic mounting & boresighting, handgun sight installation & replacement, and AR platform rifle building & customizing.
Most services can be done while you wait, and do not require your firearm to be left overnight. Parts & accessories are available from nearly all manufacturers.
FFL & NFA TRANSFERS
Buy a firearm or silencer online or from out of state? No problem! We do FFL and NFA transfers all the time, and can help you get your latest purchase in-hand.
Simply let us know that you need a transfer and we will do the rest! Many popular online retailers already have our information on-file, and no further action is required.
PAWN & Consignment
We buy, sell, pawn, and trade. If you have a firearm that you would like to get rid of, bring it in and we will give you a fair offer based on Blue Book & current market values.
We also offer consignment for the flat fee of 10%, and pawn at the monthly rate of 25%. Get the unused guns out of your safe and some cash in your wallet!
