Buying Online

Anyone ever order off AuctionArms.com? I'm tempted to buy it now on there, but want to see if anyone here has any experiences. Thanks in advance.

Re: Buying Online

Also, if I buy from the site, will Gander Mtn serve as the FFL?

Re: Buying Online

I have never used auction arms, but I have used both gunsamerica, and gunbroker with great results.......as long as you buy from reputable people/businesses you should have no problem...

IMO you would be better off finding a local shop that will handle the FFL, it will probably much easier, and cheaper........my guy charges like $25

Re: Buying Online

I bought off Auction Arms a few times, I thought I got a couple of good deals on items thet I was looking for. Never had any issues. I do always get a little nervous when I put the money order in the mail, but each time everything worked just fine.

Re: Buying Online

i threw a couple of bids on AA.com and everytime I bid I get outbid instantly. wonder if people have programs on their computer to bid automatically to a certain price to drive it up. doesn't seem right.

They probably have a feature like esnipe on ebay, or the bidding feature on gunbroker..................you enter the max amount you want to bid, and it will keep making bids until you are high bidder, or it reaches you maximum....
