I bought and sold guns there and did fairly well on the buying end. Selling is a whole other story because final fees can put a cramp in your arse.
On the buying side, just need to engage 'caveat emptor'...
Two things to watch for a good price.
- If the price seems toooooo good. Watch that they don't take money off the price and then embelish the shipping cost and...
- If you use a credit card, they will tell you in the payment area that the price you see is a cash price. Most will tell you to add 3% or more in credit card fees.
I deal with a select few on there that seem to have good prices. One being Northern Firearms. (They are Reed's Family Outdoor Outfitters in Walker, Minnesota)...You will also see their listing photo as a red box saying free shipping, no fees.
Their prices might seem a little higher than some of the better deals, they are smart and add that on to their what you see price is what you get. They also add in for free extra goodies. Extra mags, or like when I got my Ultra Covert II, got a Free Kimber Bag. Didn't really want it, but what the heck. Bottom line, their listing price may look high but in the end, it really isn't.
There are a couple vendors there that do not charge credit card fees, or shipping. One way or another, I saved almost $400 on my Covert. My LGS could not go that low and he's a Kimber dealer.
