    Hello:
    I was wondering if any of you have purchased anything from Auction Arm's website? Prices seem to be less than Gun Broker.

    Yes numerous times. AA is a regular auction site like the others. They are not a dealer and don't sell anything themselves, just the middleman.

    Steve, I visit the site but haven't bought there yet. I'd take the same precautions buying there as on any other site. Dave

    Have bought a number of things on auction arms. Prices are usually less b/c the traffic is lower than Gunbroker.

    I bought my first "internet gun" from that site. It was a beautiful Browning Take-down .22 with original Browning scope. No problems. Dave T.

    Good to know that none of you have had any problems. I use to always purchase items years ago on Ebay. I think they have dunderheads running that site now. I wrote a couple letters to them and not did I get the courtesy of a response from them.

    I live in Milwaukee and have a terrible time even finding reloading supplies, without having to drive 45 minutes away to Lomira, WI.

    Anyone ever have any dealings with Guns international or Guns America??

    Steve, I have bought from G.U. in the past and had no problems at all. I also like their website better then some of the others. Just seems easier to get around on it. Mike

    Steve,
    I have bought on both Gunbroker and Auction Arms, no problems so far.
    As stated above, ask all your questions before you bid.

    Neither are that good for reloading supplies unless you are looking for something rare or unusual. Probably better to find a mail order vendor for wads and such if you can.

    Years ago I use to purchase a lot of stuff off Ebay. Boy have they gone down hill.

    E-bay is still wonderful for things like files.. and cutters.. and gunsmithing stones.. Just need to take the time to look.. I buy Swiss files that usually retail from $18/$26 per file for usually $5/$6 plus shipping..

    Like all of them, eBay, Gunbroker, AuctionArms, its not the hosting service you have to worry about, its the individual you're buying from or selling to.

    If memory serves me correctly sellers on Auction Arms are required to sell with a 3 day inspection privelge whether they state it in the auction or not. This is not the case with Gunbroker. On Gunbroker inspection priveleges are at the discretion of the seller and many listings are "As Is - No Returns". artgsc@aol.com

    Auction Arms does police their sales.
    I had an experience where an individual did not ship a gun for 2 weeks, and they contacted him and I received a refund.

    One email to the mediator link was all it took.
