I did a search here on the forum and it seems a lot of you guys have used gunbroker.com with great success. I've been browsing that site for a specific gun and stumbled upon a different gun at a great price. Only thing that has me a bit worried is the seller has only 5 reviews and they are all from the same person all in January of 2020 and the seller only has 9 listings right now all of the same make and model of gun (different serial numbers). 

I would think gunbroker.com checks the sellers out so it's not as wild as say ebay but maybe they don't. They do have a buyers protection plan but it's a $100 deductible and the gun I'm looking at is only $250 so I would only get $150 back and be out $100. 

What are your thoughts?

I have dealt with Gunbroker.com with outstanding success, never had any problems.  I hold a C & R FFL,  brought many firearms and still use the site.

On the other hand what are you looking for?

The gun I’m really looking for is a Ruger SR9 with the stainless slide. I fell in love with that gun a couple of years ago and they just recently stopped making it so it’s getting hard to find and of course now I have some play money to spend on it.

The gun I spotted on gunbroker is an Honor Defense Honor Guard HG9SC. They are a pretty new company. Veteran owned and all American made parts. From what I’ve read they had some issue when they first started out but have since figured those issues out and they really make a nice gun. I have a friend that purchased one about a year ago and he’s had no issues with it and he puts a lot of ammo through his guns.

I don’t think you have a whole lot of protection as either the buyer or seller on GB and that seller sounds squirrelly

Everyone probably has there own opinions of gun broker based on experiences they’ve had. Mine thus far have been seamless, all with different sellers. You’ve got the right idea, look for lots of positive reviews.

Yes the entire SR series has been discontinued its being replaced with the American series. The American Series is suppose to be a big upgrade over the SR Series. 

In my search for a SR9 I have seen a lot of SR22's available but that probably wont last long.

Lots of other great options in a 9mm without breaking the bank

I agree with that. Probably the front runner would be the M+P Shield. Springfield XD series is also pretty good. The good/bad thing is right now gun prices are a bit high and this is a want vs. a need so I can wait it out to purchase a different 9mm. I'll continue to look for that SR9 though.

I like to buy from gun/pawn shops on there. And send USPS money order. Paypal may refuse to help you if they know the money was for a gun

I have made quite a few purchases from GB. Never once had any kind of issue whatsoever.
