      How are you supposed to enforce that? The rifle is still their property it's not like they're gonna give up that weapon just because a website says it's free.

      I tried to bid on a gun and the seller shilled it up to over $12,000. It was worth at absolute most $11k. I later looked into the seller and apparently they were known on other forums to have done this.

      I'm a mid thirties tech guy and I found the entire process of selling to be extremely confusing, overly complicated, too many strange fee structures, and all said and done I had the strange feeling that at least some part of it was of dubious legal standing. I doubled my money but I'll never put myself in that position again.

    Require any listing to have at least eight unique pictures of the gun. I hate having to wade through shit like seeing an old pistol and there's only one picture of each side of it. Who the frick is going to bid $700+ on a 30+ year old handgun with no more than one picture of each side?

    It's not broken enough to fix, works great, I've never had a bad experience. Skill issue?

    But if I were to improve it I'd say none of that bullshit keywords in the titles. I hate having fake results because some butthole boomer puts P7 DELTA JOHN WICK PYTHON LAUGO KORTH P8M13 KORRIPHILIA in every title.
    I also think pictures should be mandatory, if they aren't already. I see a lot of store logos in place of pictures.
    I'd make it easier for a seller to terminate an auction--their property, their choice, any time. I'd also want to see an in-house electronic payment system even if they bilk another 3%.
    I'd also start doing warnings on accounts that receive bids from bidders in the same IP range or from phone IPs (or just block phone IPs altogether). Three strikes and you're out.

    tl;dr Gunbroker is pretty great. I've gotten lots of cool stuff from there.

      Yeah I'll cosign that loan.
      I just got an original 20" long IMI mini uzi barrel for $130 the other day. That's going into a cut up mini uzi receiver I rewelded that I purchased for $200 back in 2020.
      A few months back I got a Beretta 950BS saw cut parts kit for $100, just waiting to figure out how to reweld thin aluminum.

      That shit annoys me.

      Otherwise, I agree, GB is pretty great. My gripes are mainly about searching, which is already fantastic but could be better.

      But when I want to search for a gun by barrel length I can choose

      >3
      >3 inch
      >3.1
      >3.10
      >22LR

      It's madness. Plus you can only pick one thing, not a range, e.g. 2in to 4in. Obviously you shouldn't be able to even type "22LR", and it would be kind of nice to be able to automatically convert it to MM or CM but I really don't care all that much.

      Also being able to pick more than one attribute would be nice. Perhaps I want to look up pistols that are either 32 or 380

      I've also long held that all engines like this should not update until you click apply. It'd also be nice if you could select an attribute a second time it will specifically be excluded. Although you can do this in the search

      Gunbroker's biggest issue is it's users so limiting their ability to do moronic shit like these:

      Self-bid = permanent ban from platform. No exceptions.
      3 strikes for dishonest descriptions of items. This can be subjective, but if I'm told a gun is in "good to V. good condition" and it arrives with no rifling and every small part missing or broken then it's obviously not.
      Limit tags for any item listed to like 5 or 10 tops.
      Seller can set filters for where they are willing to ship the gun, if a buyer is from one of those states (like CA) they can still see the item but it should flag that the seller can't or doesn't want to send it there.

      would go a long way to making the site more usable.

      >Sellers MUST accept CC
      You're never going to see this unless GB creates a financial branch to deal with this in house. As it is any buyer can use a "payment gateway" but nobody's going to do that to sell 2 guns a year. It's a huge pain in the ass, I'm a jaded internet superstar (oldgay, been here since 2002) and I've never heard of these companies or how to use them so you can bet your bippy some 65 year old arthritic grumpa isn't going to figure it out. Gunbroker can't "allow" Paypal and other electronic payments because those institutions prohibit firearms related transactions so that would just get both accounts terminated. So what's left over are personal checks (lol) or money orders which you have some shred of scam protection when using.

      I still use Paypal, Venmo etc but I just contact the buyer personally to arrange it, not through Gunbroker.

      Anyway, never gonna happen.

      In order to bid within 10 minutes of an auction closing you need to solve 3 elementary math word problems

      What's that going to solve? The 15 minute rule is already great at preventing snipegays.

          I think I fricked up /k/. Way overbid on something at work and then read the description and saw how bad I fricked up. Messaged the dude that I can't do it but he hasn't responded.
          What happens if I just don't pay? Instant ban I guess?

          You'll get a non-paying bidder mark on your account and the guy will probably leave an F feedback. You can withstand a handful of them before they lock your account, not sure on an exact amount but I just did a transaction with someone who had 5 non-paying F's and he was still active.

          If the seller is a bro he CAN void the transaction and NOT leave you a non-paying bidder citation, at no cost to himself. So I hope you've been communicating nicely! If you achieve to convince him to void the transaction, you could make a lower counter offer you're comfortable with before he voids, and also offer to pay the difference in his seller's fee for his trouble. But this would require an intelligent, savvy seller so maybe don't ask that of a grumpy noncommunicative boomer.

          remove credit card fees, ban self-bids

          None but the most high volume sellers are going to give up 3% of their sales to you the buyer, that's an insane thing to ask. Doesn't matter if many other industries do this, guns are expensive and 3%+fees per gun adds up. THEY are getting charged that by their providers, they're not pocketing it. Now anything over 3% is scamaz.

      A report function in general would be nice. To go with a report button, I would institute penalties for using "NOT X, NOT Y, NOT Z" in the title, shill bidding would get cracked down on, and I'd make it impossible to use the Buy Now function once a bid has been submitted for an item, if the auction starts then it should play out normally. Also I would make it a rule violation to make the Buy Now price within 5% of the starting bid because that annoys me.

      This. I want to be able to laugh react to boomers listing their Model 10 for $1k. Especially that homosexual gun store in South Dakota that uses a red felt background and puts their business card in every picture who lists their items at over double the normal price, I hate that fricking place.

      Let me give you a concrete example
      Jim is selling at item, currently bidding near the end of auction for 1000 dollars
      He knows it often sells for 1500, so that’s what he thinks people have set their maximum bid to.
      If Jim self bids 1450, he stands to improve the sale price by 500, and the chances are good.
      If 1450 becomes the maximum bid, the worst case scenario is he owes Gunbroker their fees, something like 65 dollars in this case for the final value fee.
      So he stands to gain hundreds of dollars, and lose only a few dozen, and the odds are good.
      This is bad for buyers because you are less likely to find a genuine steal. Sellers who participate in this are scum.

        I understand thats what happening. I was asking from a more technical standpoint. Is Jim using the same account he used to list the item to then bid on it? that seems like a huge oversite on the side of the website dev. I wonder if the sefl bidders are using alt accounts to do it or as this anon said

                Im starting to think youre just moronic. Patches and swabs cost maybe $10 a pack. The only thing I spurge on is Hoppes. and I use newspaper as a cleaning. Clean your god damn gun, its not a scam, do you not clean in general? Also, why tf do you want to pretend like youre this refined older shooter/collector when in reality you behave like an inner city youth?

                I paid $650 for it, came with 4 mags.
                I didn't clean it to see how long it would take to have a malfunction. I heard that the Mk23 had 30k rounds put through it without any malfunction, so i figured the USP is comparable.

                I'm liking mine. You can fit a TLR-1 on it if you 3d print a key or shave the p320 key down. Trigger out of the box has some slop but it's fine. I changed a bunch of parts, notably the ignition bits to an ed brown set, adjusted the sear spring, changed the trigger out for an svi trigger. It's really nice starting point for the price. Have only had malfunctions when I used my omega 36m on it since it's heavy as shit. Otherwise I think I've only had one malfunction the entire time I've had it so far? Also fit new safety and changed some minor parts just because I wanted to.

                Only other gripe is the screws are slightly smaller than what an rmsc footprint calls for, which is annoying; I had to get smaller screws and then cut them to length correctly for my optic. For $685 I'd say it's worth trying out.

              Ive been shooting for over a decade and the 92 is by far my favorite pistol i own. Im convinced that most of you guys have only ever shot striker-fired handguns. Because I cant imagine anyone honestly prefering them over hammer-fired. Unless your operating in harsh conditions and reliability is your chief concern, but cleaning your gun isnt that hard.

                I owned several hammer fired pistols before I bought a striker. I rather enjoy my striker and do carry it. I do prefer my striker to carry because how I accurate I am with it and how well it handles. I still think hammer fired is inherently better, but I can't really put into words why I prefer my striker for now. I just do.

              This is going to be the "glox xplode" of this decade.

              I don't necessarily have a problem with sellers having a starting bid that is high; I have a problem with sellers like in your post, geronimo, wellsplumber, etc. who just buy everything at a premium then relist the same items with the same pictures as the auction they just won, and place the starting bid 4 times what they just paid. This naturally gets relisted 400 times over the past 3 years. Gunbroker just needs to charge these frickers to relist the same shit over and over again.

              I also wish the search feature was usable. When I want to search for an Arisaka, I want to find Arisakas, not 400 pages of AR parts because some gay named his company Arisaka.

              This was possibly one of the most moronic things.

      Most of the scammers charge credit card or use PayPal and other their party services.
      They don’t want to deal with the time that money orders take or due to the fact that many of them simply do t reside within the USA.

      It took them 25 years to get a cart system to buy multiple items from the same seller.
      But my biggest peeve has been stated multiple times in the thread. Shitty/wrong tags, and self bidding. Also you should behave to upload real photos. I'm sick of seeing the same like 4 photos some guy pulled off the manufacturer website 10 years ago and now every stole from everyone else.
      Lastly I think there needs to be a better report system, something automated. See a suspicious listing? Let me report it instantly so it gets flagged and goes into some manual review bucket.

      Gunbroker has no incentive to stop shill bidders and the shitty tags and images vendors use. As long as Gunbroker gets their cut they’re mostly fine with it.

      Boomers are not clever so even detecting bids from the same IP would get most of them, they don't know about VPNs or probably even phoneposting

      [...]
      In my experience, the seller even having the item is the most prolific scam. They just take pics from someone else's listing on a forum 10 years ago and plop them in a new ad or new GB listing. So you can image search images, or just ask for a new photo of some obscure part of the gun that nobody would ever have already. If they have the thing, you can be mostly certain it's not a scam.

      Another thing someone might try is saying the money order didn't arrive when it did, and for that you can call or visit the post office/bank you used to see if it was cashed and by who.

      Other than that most of the remainder of scams are just obscuring damage, faked markings or just lying or misrepresenting an item.

      I've been buying guns for over 20 years from all kinds of sources and not only have I never been scammed, I've never been treated rudely. A money order isn't a scam method of payment, I think anon is just a zoomer.
      >i cant see whats happening in real time 24/7 on my phone SCAMAZZZZ!!!!!

      I’ve never been scammed either. It’s rather easy to see a scam as most of those accounts are NRs or have a very few ratings at most, with the majority being +1.
      What I hate is big vendors with obvious shill bidding such as KVAR, who use a dozen or so shill accounts to bump up prices.
      Although I must say, I have won items that are below market price despite some suspicious bidding. Sometimes it’s hard to tell if you’re bidding against an actual geriatric or an alt-account as some vendors use their alts to buy/sell things in addition to their primary account.

      Why do so many of you hate money orders? Personally I've never been burned across the dozens transactions I've done with them. Have you been scammed or are you just being paranoid?

      People hate taking the time out of their day to got to the post office and purchase the money order to mail it across the country. Then they have to wait for it to arrive and the recipient to cash it. It’s a rather slow process in current age but it’s rather secure.

    I’m rebuilding a gunbroker/armslist hybrid on the ICP blockchain.
    Allowing p2p sales via stables/icp/cketh/ckbtc, using individual internet identities and funding wallets used as the posting address, whereby access to funds behind the account allow login, and then making so individual II logins would be unable to self bid as it would autoflag and shadow the listing. 3 strike rule. 4 tags max, must actively select to query via description to shunt keyword spam. Granularity to narrow search via state/municipality, so in the event the seller/buyer want to meet and exchange items they can.. Txn finality enabled in half a second.
    Boomers cannot into multiple internet identities.
    Also a $20 escrow listing requirement, to dissuade spam/shit/jeets, because the funds are a bounty system.
    If a scam post is flagged by a user, 50% of the escrow is rewarded to the user who identified it. Prevents nigs from trying to scam with SVD’s they dont have, boomers key word fishing, etc.
    And its all very easy to setup and run.

      The biggest one by far would be allowing users to filter out knives, coins, and other non-gun bullshit.
      Also require unique images and listings, there’s a ton of listings of the exact same item using the same pictures, same price, and same description but different sellers. Usually it isn't even for something relevant for what you’re looking for.

      I had one get lost in the mail before, it was a pain in the ass. Money orders have a $1000 limit, at least the USPS ones do, so you have to get multiple if you’re buying something worth more than that. Also you have to use cash or a debit card, you can’t use a credit card to buy them.

          Not numerous anon, expensive collector pieces. You know how every once in a while you hear about someone finding a rare collector car in a barn somewhere? That happens on gunbroker too. Not with something common that every moron is looking for, but with rare niches. Guns often go undervalued because their boomer sellers leave out important details in the description or can't take photos worth a damn so people think the guns are in worse condition than they actually are. They also do things like list guns in the wrong category, misspell names, etc.

        Ive gotten tons of good deals by just waiting and having control over how much I bid. I don't know why people get FOMO over fricking guns. they don't really leave circulation, they just leave circulation for a time, so wait. don't pay more than you should, and you won't.

      Just don't bid above what you want to pay
      ????????

      I think he means the "staring bid $499, buy now $500 bullshit. Or worse, reserve that won't be met unless you pass the MSRP and the buy now is 20% after that.

          hey, people want to buy shit.

          >want to look at auctions
          >filter to only see auctions
          >get to see pseudo-immediate checkout listings because some homosexual boomer is trying to squeeze as much exposure as he can get out of his listing
          It's on the same tier of bullshit as tag spam, there should be a reasonable expectation of search filters showing only what you asked for and nothing more.

            if you're looking for a particular firearm it does not matter how you purchase it.

              Don't move the goalposts, this is solely about filtering auctions vs immediate checkout.

                Then you wouldn't be filtering just to see auctions or buy now listings, would you?

      I don't necessarily have a problem with sellers having a starting bid that is high; I have a problem with sellers like in your post, geronimo, wellsplumber, etc. who just buy everything at a premium then relist the same items with the same pictures as the auction they just won, and place the starting bid 4 times what they just paid. This naturally gets relisted 400 times over the past 3 years. Gunbroker just needs to charge these frickers to relist the same shit over and over again.

      I also wish the search feature was usable. When I want to search for an Arisaka, I want to find Arisakas, not 400 pages of AR parts because some gay named his company Arisaka.

    I have used a USPS money order to buy atleast 10 guns off of gunbroker without any form of issue. As far as i'm concerned it's the best method of payment.

    Banning self bids and incremental charging to relist overpriced bids, last four # of serial can not reappear from same seller unless bid no pay complaint fully resolved. Smaller fees for smaller sellers. Get's rid of msrp stores flooding the market with inventory.

    If a listing does not take credit card you can be guaranteed I will ignore it and move on. Im not sending a money order, cash or a check to your boomer ass. Figure out how to take a credit card. I dont give a frick about the 3% fee. When I sold ammo on there I took payment via paypal, just told people to not mention ANYTHING about ammo in the notes.

    2 things:
    1. A way to flag sellers listings for removal and select a reason why they are flagged (wrong information, misrepresented, etc.

    2. Consolidate your fricking calibers and model names. There are so many redundancies. I've told them about this several times and they refuse to fix it.

    There's a homosexual company called FIREARMLAND that I bid with a couple times for a $3000+ gun. They permabanned me from all their listings with no explanation, wouldn't answer my inquiry when I contacted them directly on their site, and they got to keep the several hundred dollar uptick in my bids for the gun that fricked over the other users. It was my first bid on the site so maybe that's why, but seriously what cucks. I was ready to drop a lot on it. How am I supposed to build rep if you don't fricking let me buy your product.

    - require morons to fill out as much information about the firearm as possible so it's easy to search, filter and tag
    - disallow, make it easy to report and remove listings that are selling XYZ so they decide to cram a million keywords that are of no relation to the fricking gun in the title or description like XYZ SMITH AND WESSON FNC ULTRA RARE LIKE
    - all fees, tax, etc should be up front, every time you bid the price of shipping and tax should be shown right fricking there, it's fricking easy
    - lower the ridiculous credit card fees for both buyer and sellers
    - minimum number of photos, always at least a few of the bore, one of the photos should have a timestamped photo with the seller's username
    - no bs terms like "rare", your charter arms piece of shit revolver is not "rare"
    - NR sellers should be required to use an escrow of some kind
    - if your listing has you taking cashier's checks, you are required to also take personal checks, it's ok to require a waiting period for personal checks though
    - relisting your item indefinitely should cost you more and more money, no point in clogging up search results if your shit ain't selling
    - no bullshit condition ratings, your goobered up and scratched to shit and back gun isn't "like new", let the photos show it

      So many weapons don't show up under their proper categories because they don't take the time to tag them correctly. I hate scrolling through hundreds of random knick-knacks after entering a search to find the dozens of rifles the category didn't pick up. Sometimes there are more of the rifles not under their correct tag than there are that show up after a search WITH the tag

        It should be fricking required. Like if you're too fricking dumb to fill out a spreadsheet of pertinent details then you don't deserve to sell your shit on the internet. It ain't fricking hard.

        They also need to fix their shit so shit like 45 acp, .45 acp, .45 auto, 45 auto etc are all consolidated. There's so many moronic instances of this all of the place.
