Perhaps a stupid question...

As some of you know I'm shopping for a Kimber Ultra 45. I've been hanging out on GunBroker and have seen several.

My questions relates to asking the seller a question on GunBroker during an auction, such as "how many magazines are included" if they didn't specify in their ad.

When I ask, where will I see the seller's answer...in my account email?

In the recent past on a non-Kimber, non-necessary pistol (but a great price), I asked them whether it came with all the original mags and red-dot plates. It's been a week, there are 6 days left in the auction and I've never seen an answer. That makes me think the seller is one I don't want to deal with.

So essentially my question is does that mean I haven't gotten an answer, or I'm too dumb to find where it is?

Anytime I “Ask Seller a question” on GB, any response I receive will show up in my email that I used when making my GB account many years ago. If you are not receiving a GB email reply from the seller, don’t deal with that seller. My experience is “slow or no email comm” will become “slow.... service if you buy.”

I would agree with pjanthony. It returns to my regular email (only one I have) that's associated with my GunBroker account.

What is the number (x) by his screen name? Higher the number the better. You can check buyer feedback.
Slow email response does not always mean they are a bad seller or someone you should avoid buying from. That's one of the great things about GB usually plenty of sellers to pick from so you can avoid the low/bad feedback sellers.

Just to cover the bases, did you check your "Spam" folder?

I think if I was looking for another Ultra I would jump on this one. I like the look, it already has night sights, textured front and rear strap. I also think this is a great price.

Bigdog,

It should be an email from GB'er with the sellers reply in your GB'er email address.

If a seller doesn't answer me in one full business day I will not purchase from them. Click on their feedback number and search for any negative reviews. I have +227 sales & purchases on GB'er with zero negatives and I always answer questions within 12 hours.

If no or low feedback reviews or many negative reviews, PAY with a Credit Card that guarantees your purchases. GB'er says they will help you with disputes but..........?

BEWARE of Armslist.

I like my UC2, and I think the compact .22LR conversion kit is a good idea.

I still would like a conversion kit in .380, so I'm going to call Kimber and simply ask for one.

After what I paid Terry Tussey over the years, it might seem cheaper!

Thanks John that is a good find.

I have a "boy's trip" (just me and my 'boys' and wallet) to several non-local gun shops. Going to do a loop through Eastern NC to Raleigh and fondle Kimbers until I have "the one" in my hand. All the Ultras are all on my list as I do my swing, although I'm hoping to run across a lightly used Super Carry Ultra + hiding in some remote LGS.

SCU+, good luck with that, took me a while to find one on GunBroker.
