Armslist

Postby gopokes » Mon Aug 02, 2021 8:16 am

Anyone ever buy a gun on armslist? Looks like I have to become a member to contact this particular seller? It's a bummer because the guy selling it is semi-local but there is no contact info beyond going through the listing. I'm balking at 'joining' - should I just get over it and join? I've actually bought stuff there before but always through a business listing or a contact number provided, never through the 'contact seller' route. Thanks for any advice.

I've bought and sold through Armslist but not since they put up the paywall. Savy sellers put a contact number in their listings now.

Basically if you really want it, no other choice than to join.

I have purchased and sold from Armslist before with no issues. When I signed up, it did not cost anything and I haven't been on it in a couple years so some things may have changed. Most of my purchases and sales were through gunbroker which I have had good luck on.

It really sucks that you have to join Armlist in order to contact a seller. I'm not sure why someone would even list a firearm on Armslist as they really limit potential buyers with this new policy. GunBroker.com is way better.
