    Gun Brokers?

    I've been browsing the web a lot lately, (product of being on light duty), and I've come across a few firearms broker and auction sites. Anyone have experience with any of these? Recommendations?

    Any FFL holders on O/R have a better idea on wholesaler resources for a buyer (with FFL support)?

    I've heard of a super nice guy who has his FFL. He's a cop, super friendly and deadly sexy... You can reach him at tom@gunbarn2.com He goes by Tom or Chewy...

    Hannibal is also an FFL and he owns an LE Store so try him too.

    I bought a gun from auctionarms.com while in college and then used the yellow pages to find a gun store then contacted them explained the situation and she charged me $20 to use her FFL. No problems very easy.

    I have used Gunbroker several times without complaint.

    Possessed of an FFL, or with a relationship with an FFL at a reasonable rate, you can buy direct from the distributor.

    +1 for gunbroker. It is easy to use and alot of product on there. I just sold my LMT AR15 on there. I put it on a 7 day auction and it was viewed over 2200 times in just seven days

    I think Gun Broker is a good site. Its like anything else, check their user ratings and if a guy has 4 transactions forget it. Buy from somebody who's got a bunch with a good rating and you're pretty damn secure. Have 'em ship it to a local FFL and you're golden.

    I know this thread's a bit stale, but I got my Kimber TLE off Gunbroker. GunsAmerica is another one that's similar. The FFL on my end was a fellow cop - I had zero problems.

    I would probably only use them for obscure weapons, though. I've got a local dealer who cuts cops a break, plus there's this guy named Chewy **cough** who could hook me up.

    Hell, once my house purchase goes through, I might get a safe and get my own FFL. Between that and getting Class III stuff, I'd be set up proper!
