I have been looking at several guns on gunbroker.com. Do any of you have any opinions on the quality of their service?

That depends on the seller, make sure he or she has good feedback and the more of it the better. As far as GB goes it is a good site

Please bear in mind that gunbroker.com is only a medium by which buyers contact customers, and vise versa. They have no oversight or responsibility in the transaction.

With that out of the way, I have had good experience purchasing guns through gunbroker and auctionarms. You have to do you homework. Pay attention the the feedback of a seller and be wary of sellers with no tranaction history. Many sellers are actual FFL's, but some are just individuals. The best deals come from individuals that have to unload a gun for cash. Make person to person contact, get telephone numbers, and use some other means to determine that the person is who they say they are. I have used county property appraiser tax records online to confirm that someone owns the house that I'm mailing my Money Order to. Use trackable, documented methods of mailing and payment. I use postal money orders to pay because if there is a problem, I can contact the U.S. Postal Inspectors and make a claim of mail fraud and I may get a little better response than with local law enforcment.

Just a few bits of advice. Good Luck.

I bought a Winchester thru Gunbroker: actual seller turned out to be a pawn shop in Cleveland. Gun was sent to someone in Texas and I got an I-pod. Finally got the gun delivered to my FFL here is Washington but had to go thru some hoops to get it. Not Gunbrokers fault. The Pawn broker had a hard time with english.

There are good deals to be had, but buyer beware. I have had a number of great transactions and one where it was not quite as described, but still worth the money.

I find the Auctionarms tends to have less volume, but better deals.
