    Just curious- Why does Gunbroker always feature Blaser rifles in their "Showcase Items" on the homepage?

    Because that seller paid extra for a "Showcase" listing.

    Same with the "Featured" items that appear first in search results.

    Google works the same way, with "Sponsored Ads" at the top and right side when you search.

    I've only sold one firearm on Gunbroker but, as others above stated, it's among several options that the seller can choose when he sets up the auction.

    Each option costs money, of course, and being listed on the front page is the most expensive.

    Even having a thumbnail photo next to your item costs a little.

    He's right tho -- I've noticed it myself and have to chuckle everytime I go in there!

    It looks like they are all from the same vendor- Mad Dog Guns.

    As of 11:17 pm on July 9th, they have 1434 items on Gunbroker, and NONE of them have any bids... :scrutiny::rolleyes::uhoh:
