I used to browse their site quite often. I even bought a gun from them once. When I try to go to their website I get this:


www.gunfinder.net Not Available
The domain www.gunfinder.net which you are trying to access is currently unavailable. This may occur for several reasons -- the name may have changed, or it may have moved to a new location. Please try to access the site later, or contact the site's administrator.

I've noticed this for a month or so. Are they out of business? Or are they calling themselves something else now?

They used to offer guns on gunbroker as well, but I haven't seen them with anything for bid in a while either.

Thanks.

I just looked at their recent feedback on Gunbroker. Looks like it was messy. Anybody know the story?

Have there been any other online gun dealers to go broke?

As 'Post Subject' labels, this is to be taken as not the "Word of God".

It is possible that Gunfinder.net has fallen to bankruptcy. as to the details, perhaps that will be forthcoming shortly.

Thankfully enough, I resolved the delay/issues regarding my purchase of a Beretta Inox Type M from Gunfinder.net this Sept., before the real trouble started. They may not have been the best deals out there on the net, but they had been reliable for some time.

... returned some clues.

It appears that Gunfinder.net may have started having some problems around the mid-point of 2003, as around that time several posters on various boards complained of auctions of available firearms that turned out to be NLA when attempting to purchase off auction.

Then the negative feedback over on Gunbroker.com started picking up in the 3rd quarter 2003, with it becoming more prevalent in 12/2003, carrying over into 2004. Following up on this, a post over on GT turned up a notification from a poster indicating a notification received. So as to not make this more "third hand" than it already is, here's the link:

As it may appear, I believe it should be accepted that Gunfinder.net is no longer available for business. At least the currently existing information tends to point to that conclusion.

Well if they do go into bankruptcy the purchasers should expect to get the firing in and perhaps a piece of the stock, but not much more than that.

Their website struck me as way too aggressive and I avoided them. It popped up on half the gun searches I did on google and wouldn't let me back out.
