I've had great luck the past 16 years, and out of over 700 feedbacks they're about half and half buying/selling. I didn't ask for anybody's opinion of whether it's a waste of time or not. I can make up my own mind how well i spend my time.

I specifically asked if anybody had any unresolved technical issues lately. Instead of much of anything useful i get dementia sounding blather from Run With the Mouth and useless. baseless (to wit: I've never visited Gunbroker, nor do I intend to) opinions on the quality of gunbroker, which is why i seldom ask anything on any gun forum anywhere.

The major complaint, and unresolved technical issue I have with Gunbroker, is the change that happened a couple years ago with the Search Function. In the past, if I did a search for "Double Rifle", I got maybe 50 or 60 results, and most of them were either actual Double Rifles, or closely related items. My .450 BPE Double rifle was bought on Gunbroker, and paid for with a U.S. Postal Money Order... no problems, no issues, no scams. Just a gun that was even nicer than it was described.

Now if I do a search for "Double Rifle", I get perhaps 8000 or more results. And the vast majority have absolutely nothing to do with my Search request. This also happens with many other searches I do. I complained. I asked for a means to filter out all of the extraneous crap. I repeated my request several times. I got nothing from Gunbroker Support. A decade ago, when I had a problem logging in, they were helpful and quick to respond. Now it's like Biden's "Build Back Better". Nothing is Better. As a result, I don't spend as much time perusing Gunbroker auctions as I once did. Too bad, because I made some nice and interesting finds at nice prices there.


A true sign of mental illness is any gun owner who would vote for an Anti-Gunner like Joe Biden.

It's that big column on the left side of your screen labeled FILTERS
By Type, Manufacturer, Model, Caliber, barrel length, etc.
I clicked on Rifles and immediatly eliminated 90% of the 8000 search results.
Just keep filtering.

Over many years on this forum and others, I've heard more complaints about Gunbroker than any other firearms commerce site. If it's as good as everyone says, I'll stand corrected on its quality. And I'll be sure not to comment on any of fnb25's posts here going forward.

Been using them for 20 years, both ways. A few issues to be sure but really the best place to find what a gun will bring.

You hear more complaints, perhaps because more people use it. For people with a small amount of knowledge, most of the problems can be avoided (like torch colored guns, parts guns, etc.). It's probably the best approximation of a free market in the gun trade, espcially since you can look up the prices for which things actually sold.
