The other major consideration for selling is cost- GB has raised their rates significantly. 6% of the first $350, then $3 after that. Compared to GI's flat $15 listing fee (depending on volume, some sellers get a little less). So on an expensive gun, GB can easily get over $100. I've found GB much better selling for cheaper/more broadly desired guns whereas GI is great for higher quality ones

GI has a better selection than GAmerica.
had someone post a stolen pic of another gun and crazy low price on a kreighoff on GI. he even got verified. right.
it was a scam. he had people emailing him to complete the deal instead of thru GI. (red flag) we caught him before he could hurt anyone.
so...just a note to all, dont believe that junk they post on verifying sellers. they dont do a good job at all. in the age of throw away phones, no one is safe.

I'm sorry, but it's not believable that a "top salesman" would speak like this. Only an abject moron would speak thusly.

well nudge, one of the qualities of salemanship is the ability to emulate ones customer...some people buy from other people they like...some people like other people who seem to be like them...and as such make them feel good about themselves...

the salesman i referred to above had his early success in the states that once comprised the old Confederacy...later, he was also very successful selling in the U.K...elluv ah goud bloke e was, don ja know...

FWIW, I just had an excellent Gunbroker experience. Had three guns to sell: a 1942 issue M1 carbine with Winchester markings and all matching serial numbers, a Walther P-38 from 1944 with matching serial numbers, and a Webley .455 top break revolver with about 20% finish. All three brought substantially more than I'd expected and the total was almost twice my best estimate. Proving two things: Some stuff really sells on Gunbroker and I don't know didly about the current pricing on military surplus weaponry.

all three items sound like desirable military collectibles and with many guns shops now closed, they have also become desirable home defense weapons, as well...its all about supply and demand...

congrats on your sales...
