Horners Auctioneers are one of only a few auction houses in Norfolk to have RFD (registered firearms dealer) status. This enables us to handle the sale by auction of your shotguns, firearms and air weapons in complete accordance with the licensing laws.


Our well attended periodic auction events are held throughout the year. Professional active marketing – online, through local press and with our extensive database of prospective buyers has historically realised good prices for our clients.

Should a situation develop due to the death of the licence holder or the expiry of a licence it is essential that the local police firearms department are informed immediately and either application made for a temporary licence or weapons transferred to the care of a RFD or appropriate licence holder.

A strict protocol for thr transfer of ownership must be followed. Horners have long established experience of procedures and will complete all the necessary paperwork, and notifications in accordance with the regualtions, on your behalf at no extra cost. When arranging delivery of your shotguns and air weapons it is always advisable to call beforehand and arrange an appointment. Please bring with you any applicable licences for inspection and remember to sleeve your weapons for safe transportation.


We look forward to providing our services for you soon. Please call or e-mail us with any questions or to discuss your requirements. Free and professional advice is always available.
