Northern Firearms

Has anyone ever bought from Northern Firearms on gunbroker.com. I was interested in a Sig 226 and they have a lot of guns advertised but none of them have any pictures.

Just wondered if people have a good experience dealing with them. The prices seems to be good and they list the gun as being new in the box.

How have all the previous purchasers rated them? That will give you a more accurate picture. Look at their reviews, and compare also against ratings and quantities of other firms.

You can also send them a private message asking for very specific photos.

Greg, for what it's worth.

I purchased my Browning BPS from them last year. The gun was exactly as advertised, brand new, still in the grease, and absolutely wonderful. I got it for a steal.
Northern was courteous, answered all my questions as a new gun buyer, and shipped things VERY quickly. Payment was easy and convenient.
I was very impressed.
But that is just my experience.

I looked at the reviews and most were positive (about 6000) there were a few negatives, not many. Those mostly were complaints about it taking to long to ship

I've done business with them before and found them to be very helpful and friendly. I bought a rifle and scope from them on different occasions and had no problems.
