I am on an email list for Rock Island Auction. I can spend hours enjoying the photos. I have a few collectible guns and I like to compare RI's pre-auction estimates to the value I assign to my guns. The more I browse the more guns I find that have been refinished and are plainly identified as such in the description. I have sold quite a few guns on GunBroker as a private seller (non-FFL) but I have never bought a gun without holding it first. Clearly many of you purchase from online auctions. How satisfied have you been with the accuracy of RI's and other similar companies descriptions and ease of sale? Also, the 17.5% buyer's premium is too much for me.
