Default Online gun auction?

I know the US has lots of gun auction houses and I go looking and drooling all the time but I can't find a Canadian site to look at used guns. Do we have anything? I love older guns and the local stores all have junk or new.

I use gunbroker in the US(gunsamerica, auctionarms, to a lesser extent) and bring them across. I've also bought a few on CGN.

New online site that just started:

www.gunauction.ca

It's brand new, so there isn't many guns on it yet, but it may get better. And it's Canadian.

You have to get permission. I highlighted where to click in the picture, unless you have already?

X3. Although I've also bought on here with no problems. This site does not have the trader rating function like CGN, so you're going in a little blind...

And another reference to the only Canadian online AUCTION site that I can find:

www.gunauction.ca

Here is a site that sometimes has a good selection (but not right now)..... http://www.valleyguns.com/ It was started by Jeff Smith (Valley Gunsmithing) and I used to check it frequently. Registration is required to bid.

This is an old thread, but the Canadian gun auction site www.GunAddicts.com just celebrated its 1 year anniversary recently. In such a short time it has over 250 active listings at a time and growing daily.

It's free to use with no listing, no member or commission fees. Also there are about 20 categories to make it easy to find guns by action type.

It has a good feedback rating system like ebay and what's good about it is how fast it loads - and there are pictures!

All I know is that I never should have discovered Gunbroker.com.
It has been a very costly website for me.

This is a super old thread but not alot has changed since started so ive decided to fix that. GunBidz.ca opened its doors a couple days ago and is a FREE simple listing service for the used market that is so untapped here in Canada. I like many others have been buying and selling firearms legally online for years but understand how frustrating it can become sometimes and was always envious of the established used market the guys down south have. I simply want to connect buyers and sellers and maybe take advantage of a good deal here and there. Its Free and built for you so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks and enjoy GunBidz.ca
