    Not a single AR 15… Interesting.

    1. avatar BRZCory says:

      Well yeah, when AR’s are competing against 10/22’s, of course they’re gonna lose every time.

      $200 gun vs $600+ gun.

    2. avatar Wiregrass says:

      Or fantastic plastic. More interesting.

    3. avatar Bob says:

      Because there is no single AR15. There is a hundred manufacturers that don’t rise above their competitors. Sig and Colt have strong brand names behind their 1911s.

      1. avatar Scrubula says:

        Fair enough. They should also include ranking based on category of guns (pump shotguns, lever action, double barrel, AR15 pattern, etc.)

      2. avatar styrgwillidar says:

        Sig also did the buy one get one free thing last year, wonder how many they sold under that promotion.

    4. avatar Steve says:

      This list speaks more about GunBrokers customer base than about firearm sales. When Citori and Ruger No. 1 are your top sellers in any category I don’t think your data reveals an industry trend.

  2. avatar JS says:

    I think the answer to that is in your comment. There isn’t a single AR15, there’re thousands of them with no one brand having a clear dominance.

    I have a lot of them, not one was purchased as a complete rifle.

  3. avatar Sc says:

    I give up. Comments are super broken.

    1. avatar Robert Farago says:

      Apologies. We’re on it.

    2. avatar JS says:

      Sorry to whomever Sc is, it switched my name mid post and now I cant delete it.

  4. avatar anddahorse says:

    What?!!! OMG
    You can buy guns on the interwebz?
    Does little mikey know about this?

    Sarc off for now

  5. avatar dph says:

    neat, I can get the email address of random dudes thanks to broken comment system! way to go…

  6. avatar Julio says:

    remind me never to use a real email addy on here again

  7. avatar CJ Minnesota says:

    It is time to shut off the comments until fixed. What if someone accidentally posts as someone else, and posts something a bit on the edge, a bit inflammatory, and that person ends up on trial for a defensive shooting, and the prosecution brings out a post that wasn’t written by the defendant, but has his/her name/email attached to it.

    It isn’t a good situation.

  8. avatar Mr Pierogie says:

    no one in their right mind would buy an AR off gunbroker. I imagine 10/22’s are almost ALWAYS on the list.

  10. avatar spacecoaster says:

    I own none of those firearms–none.
    Just another reminder that nothing on the interwebs is private. Sorry space.

  11. avatar SpecialK says:

    I think it is important to consider what a person might use gunbroker for. It is extremely easy to find and buy a Glock 19 or Ruger LCR at the LGS. A Colt Python or Sig 1911 may require a more specialized search over a large area, especially to arrive at a reasonable price. This data should be viewed in context rather than as some kind if proxy for the market as a whole.

    Best Fudd Guns of 2014

  13. avatar Matt says:

    I guess I contributed to the semi-auto pistol category with my SIG 1911 TACOPS purchase…

    1. avatar styrgwillidar says:

      Did you get a free 1911-22 with it?

  14. avatar Former Water Walker says:

    Lots of deals on Gunbroker. I’m heading there now…

  15. avatar int19h says:

    What’s interesting is that there are two Mossberg shotties in there, but not a single Remington. I think the old debate has just got a final answer 🙂

    1. avatar Joseph Quixote says:

      Look closer. The 870 is the best selling of the used guns.

  16. avatar nobody says:

    >Colt Pythons are the best selling used revolver

  17. avatar Mark N. says:

    The benefit of finding a really good price on a handgun, or especially something that is not available locally, was ruined in my local market by the dealers now charging $75 to do a transfer. Sure, they have to make a dime, but when they can’t get what I want, and the internet prices are well under MSRP, that tacked on service charge is a deal killer. As a result, I haven’t used the internet to buy a firearm for about six or seven years. Which kinda sucks.
