Tips for gunbroker? I'm in a conundrum, the more tips I give out, the more perspective buyers I'm competing against! I watch for auctions with plenty of GOOD pictures from highly rated sellers. Don't be afraid to ask questions or for more pictures. I watch for low starting bids with only a few days left with no bidders. It doesn't hurt if you're comfortable popping one open to fix a small issue or two. A good picture down the sighting plane will quickly reveal a canted barrel. I typically avoid "buy it now" auctions. Penny start auctions typically attract a bunch of bidders and will typically get around market price. I've won a number of very lightly used new guns that spouses vetoed if sellers are to believed. You send your money and FFL contract info (or call your FFL and have them send it over) and fill out a 4473 when it shows up. Easy as that.
