    I frequently drool over guns listed on gunbroker and gunsamerica. I recently started looking on armslist as well. I noticed this morning a gun (with pictures) that was listed on arms list 2x but from different locations (alaska and alabama) with different prices. The gun was posted for sale about a month a part. I then went on gunbroker and the same gun was also listed at a much higher prices from Maine. Seems fishy to me.

    Ask the seller(s) for a different pic of the gun and then also a pic of the serial number on the gun. Not fool proof but scammers will not be able to provide the photo.
    Thanks for the idea Dave!

    I see the same thing happen frequently with horse trailers and they are scams. They have even offered to sell me one, using an escrow service, promising that , since they are in the Air Force they will have it shipped to me on an Air Force Cargo Plane.
