Top-Selling Firearms at GunBroker.com Highlight Popular Models

December 1, 2020 GMT

Atlanta, GA - ( NewMediaWire ) - December 01, 2020 -  At GunBroker.com, we believe that the firearm community members benefit from knowing which makes and models enjoy widespread popularity. As hunters, sport shooters, and home-defense advocates, it’s essential to be able to select the best available options. That’s why GunBroker.com partnered with GunGenius.com to use analytics that highlight trends. If knowledge truly is power, these top-selling items from November are worth considering.

First, we need to discuss the Colt Python. This revolver is rapidly becoming a sidearm of legend. It’s widely recognized as the model used by Rick Grimes in The Walking Dead, and the signature piece delivers power, accuracy, and a classic design that is awe-inspiring. Those are just some of the reasons the Colt Python has been the No. 1 revolver for six consecutive months at GunBroker.com. Rounding out the revolver field, the Heritage Arms Rough Rider continues to rank high, and the Taurus 856 and 605 posted in the top five.


Semi-auto handgun purchases at GunBroker.com remained static for November, with the Glock G19 retaking top honors and the G43 staying in the top five. Glocks have earned a favored place among concealed-carry enthusiasts based on their reliability, superior power, and relatively lightweight. The G19, for example, offers 9mm, 15-round capability with a 4-inch barrel. During November, the Sig Sauer P365, Springfield Armory Hellcat, and Glock G43 followed the G19, and the Sig Sauer P320 enjoyed renewed popularity among GunBroker.com firearm buys, ranking as the fifth most popular.


Unlike the relatively consistent handgun purchases, semi-auto rifle analytics saw two big movers. The Ruger AR-556 and Smith & Wesson M&P15-22 jumped to the No. 2 and 3 spots, respectively. The AR-556 employs forged aerospace-grade aluminum, and GunBroker.com rifle buffs typically prefer that high-level of durability. Similarly, Smith & Wesson’s M&P15-22 is a cost-effective model that gets the semi-auto job done.


Among semi-auto shotgun manufacturers, Benelli made heads turn in November. The Benelli M4 Tactical maintained its category lead, and its M2 joined it in top-five sales. Both provide substantial 12-gauge action, but the M4 offers a 5-round capacity over the M2’s three. If you want to reload less often, the popular Israel Weapon Industries TS12 offers a 15-round capacity and has been a hot-trending model in recent months.

Traditional side-by-side and over-under shotguns haven’t lost any steam among hunters and sport shooters. The CZ-USA Bobwhite earned top honors from GunBroker.com fans last month. It showcases the classic lines one would expect in a traditional skeet shooting firearm. The Bobwhite managed to outpace the Stoeger Coach Gun, which some consider the iconic Old West shotgun collectible. Stoeger’s Condor topped the over-under category that also saw a showing from the TriStar Arms Setter and Weatherby Orion I, among others.


Other firearms of note for the month include the Winchester SXP, which moved into the top-five pump-action shotgun category. In terms of single-shot rifles, the Ruger No. 1 ranked well, number one among GunBroker.com firearms aficionados.


The team at GunBroker.com works diligently to provide members of the firearm community with intel about rising products. We hope the use of next-gen analytics and our work with GunGenious.com help you make informed decisions when using the GunBroker.com platform.
