    It seems a good bit of the people on gunbroker.com are FFL holders trying to move guns online so I don't see too big of a problem. Just check into the seller before sending monies.

    I've never bought any firearms off either site have bought accessories before even sent monies overseas and haven't had any problems, just make sure its a reputable seller beforehand.

    theres a guy named bbq05 thats from some store called Harris Sporting Goods, some people from 24hourcampfire have had problems with them doing the same thing that happened to you. Their prices are also horrible too, usually right around or even above MSRP on stuff :ugh:

    example, MSRP is $611

    Ive made a purchase from AuctionArms, but the guy was in DFW and I was headed that way the next day anyway.

    95% of the time when I try and contact someone on Gunsamerica to purchase their item, they never respond. :hs:

    I've used both. I haven't used GB in awhile, cos I haven't found much I've been looking for there. GA has been good to me, both buying and selling.

    I cant stand the surplus rifle resellers on there. They even copy/paste the picture from the website they bought it from too. Then double the price up as well.

    ALike that one guy that always seems to take pictures of his rifles on his deck. He wated $10K for a PEM 91/30 :rofl:
