Anyone buy off Gunbroker? What happens if you are bidding on more than one gun and win both auctions?? I know the sellers get REALLY mad if u win and don't buy.

Beers will be flowing tonight so I might end up with sumpin

If you bidding on a gun and win, you're expected to buy it. Its the right thing to do.

Bought a bunch from GB. Good site.

He did not win anything, he contracted to buy the 2 guns at the prices he bid on them.

The Win 52, remember we shot them like they were no big deal when we were kids???!!! My High school had a rack of them and some 75's I believe??

So bid on 1 gun at a time, is what you're sayin???

I guess you do "WIN"....winning the auction......but alas.....you do have to pay for it.

BF....I haven't started yet.....................getting damn close though......... cheers

While there is nothing stopping you from welching on a won auction, it will get you negative feedback and is definitely a crappy thing to do. Best to only bid on one gun at a time.

I couple tips:

1) You can wing some auctions at the last second if there arent too many bidding
2) Ive bought some guns off GB by simply contacting the seller. If they're not getting any bids they may consider ending auction early for you.

I thought GB switched their auctions to stop the auction sniping at the last minute. The new way is the auction ends at a set time OR 15 minutes after the last bid, whichever is last. So if you try to snipe an auction at the last second, then 15 minutes is added to let previous bidders increase their bids. Or maybe I am thinking of a different site.

I too have contacted sellers through the site and they've ended the auction and sold it for the opening bid price. That usually happens when they have listed the item many times on the site and gotten zero bids and they are now dropping the price and relisting it. Got a great suppressor for really cheap a few months ago.
