Here's my situation. My brother-in-law wants a specific Sig 1911 for his birthday, but no local places have it (my sister assigned this task to me). I can special order one but its more expensive than buying one normally. I was curious, so I looked on gunbroker.com to see what they had, and I found a few deals that were exactly what he wanted. They were cheaper than store prices and shipping was free on some. I know FFL transfer fees would come into play with this method. If there're any people who've used websites like these, my question is how legit are they? Am I safe to say that if I buy the pistol I want from a positively reviewed member that I won't get screwed on it somehow? I'm kinda skeptical about making a big purchase like that without seeing the product first OR seeing the seller face-to-face, so now I'm curious on what other's experience on these websites have been.
