GunBroker.com statistics reveal this summer’s most popular firearms 

Kennesaw, GA - ( NewMediaWire ) - August 13, 2020 - Famed for its regular monthly selling reports detailing the biggest sellers on its platform, online marketplace GunBroker.com has now delved into this summer’s overall sales to reveal what’s been most popular as the fall season approaches.

“This summer has seen a number of consistent best-sellers across handgun, rifle, and shotgun sales,” reveals a GunBroker.com representative, speaking from the company’s headquarters in Kennesaw, Georgia. Stand out firearms, they say, have included the Sig Sauer P365 Nitron Micro-Compact handgun, and, among top-selling semi-automatic rifles, both the KEL-TEC Sub-2000 and the Smith & Wesson M&P15.

The lever-action Marlin 1895 has also held the top-seller title in its category all summer, according to GunBroker.com reports dating back to May of this year.

Founded in 1999, GunBroker.com is now the world’s largest online marketplace of its kind and has actively promoted responsible ownership of guns and other firearms for more than two decades. GunBroker.com data allows users of the online marketplace to compare trends in the sale of firearms, month-by-month. Individuals may filter by firearm type, condition, and more, with freely available archived data also on offer.

Marketed as the number one way to safely and securely buy and sell hunting and shooting gear online in the U.S., aside from merchandise bearing its logo, GunBroker.com sells none of the items listed on its website. Third-party sellers list items for sale, and federal and state laws govern the end purchase of firearms and other restricted items. Ownership policies and regulations are followed by using licensed firearms dealers as transfer agents, the online marketplace’s team states.

This summer’s most popular firearms largely mirror those that were popular during summer 2019, according to GunBroker.com. These include top-selling semi-automatic handgun, the Sig Sauer P365 Nitron Micro-Compact, top-selling semi-automatic rifle, the Ruger AR-556, and the top-selling pump-action shotgun from the same period, the Mossberg 590.

Also proving popular again this summer have been the bolt-action Ruger Precision Rifle, and best-selling lever-action rifle, the Marlin 1895. “Until you’ve held and shot a Marlin 1895, you don’t know what a lever-action rifle can be!” says a GunBroker.com spokesperson. Its reputation as one of the finest lever-action rifles available is reflected in its best-seller status two summers in a row, they say. “Elsewhere, top-selling again this summer has been the pump-action Remington 12, the powerful, reliable, and versatile side-by-side Stoeger Coach Gun, and the single-shot Ruger No. 1,” adds the representative.

One significant shift during the same period comes in terms of revolver sales on the award-winning online marketplace platform, according to GunBroker.com. Last summer’s top seller here, they say, was the popular Smith & Wesson M&P Bodyguard 38. “This summer, however,” adds GunBroker.com ’s spokesperson, “and, indeed, for much of 2020 as a whole, the Colt Python has been the platform’s best-selling revolver, now holding the top spot in this category every month since May.”
