    Here are two guns that I was following on GB and the hammer dropped at jaw-dropping numbers. The Kimber is unexplainable as the front strap is not checkered and the magwell fit is horrific. I was hoping maybe I could get it around $1,000 or $1,200 for a neat base gun :rolleyes...

    I was accustomed to seeing +3% on CC purchases on some GB listings but today I saw some 4% and even a 5%. What is wrong with people? To me CC fees are a cost of business to be absorbed by the seller and if you are really set on recuperating it mark the price up 3%. Ok, off my rant

    I placed a bid on Gunbroker for a 1911 pistol. It was a penny auction with no reserve. I put in a low but realistic max bid (I didn't want the pistol that bad). For a long while I was winning the auction. Then, on the last day, someone else came in and incrementally bumped up their bid until it...

    Considering all the threads on FFL's shutting down, people not wanting to ship or receive or even states closing all non-essential businesses. I'm surprised so many guns have competitive bidding and selling for more than what I would pay and I'm not talking about home defense shotguns, Glocks...

    I was surprised to see where the price went. I'm pretty ignorant about 9x23, but I was watching this auction out of curiosity. https://www.gunbroker.com/Item/830105574

    This Premier II-looking pistol on GB looks like it is either going to end with no bids or sell to someone for a price that seems pretty decent to me. It's at $1299.99+50 shipping+CC fees. Not mine. https://www.gunbroker.com/item/813450318

    Like everybody else here, I cruise gunbroker now and then to see if I can find any deals or interesting buys. A couple of weeks ago after I received the Ed Brown Special Forces II that I got from Raylan Givens I was looking at other EB Special Forces 1911s on gunbroker just to see what's out...

    Crack on frame @ MSH slot. Wonder how that happened? For $500, it might be a deal but not at $1k. I have no affiliation with the seller just window shopping when I probably shouldn't! What would you give for it? http://www.gunbroker.com/item/566564242

    http://www.gunbroker.com/item/561809024 Not sure if the link will work, this is NOT mine. My only comment is that I do not see the caliber (10MM ) on the side of the slide that typically has that marking on it. Also, the trigger and guide rod do not look stock, but I am just a guy who gets up...
