(last updated on 2/15/2013)

If you are interested in a particular type of item and you would like a way to be notified when a matching item is listed for sale on our site, you can create a Saved Search. Saved Searches can then be run at any time using My GunBroker.

To Create a Search:

  • Use any of the Search boxes located throughout our site to generate a search result. As an example, enter "Colt 1911" into the search box in the header at the top of the page and click the Search button.
  • The results of your search will be displayed in list view on the Search Results page.

To Save a Search:

  • At the bottom of the Narrow Your Search box, you will see green text that says "Save this Search".
  • This opens a dialog box that will save your search into your Favorite Searches section in My GunBroker.
  • If you would like to be notified via email when an item is listed that matches your search, select the "Email" checkbox.
  • You can run the saved search anytime by going to My GunBroker > Favorites > Searches.
