The guys who designed this search engine are over at Calguns.net.
It is a pretty cool search engine to find the best price on a make and model gun.

http://www.gunwatcher.com/

Here is the background on it...

"First let me start by saying that this site is a hobby by a couple of programmers and I. We are making 0 money off of it and are paying for the servers/hosting/ etc.. entirely out of our own pocket. There is not a single ad or even a donate button on the site. It is a free tool for other gun enthusiast.

About 2 years ago I wanted to create a way to quickly find the cheapest price on any gun I wanted. I was lucky enough to find some extremely talented programmers to help me out here locally. So after a long time testing and grabbing some good deals for ourselves , we are ready to release it to everyone right in time for Black Friday/Cyber Monday. We hope you guys enjoy it, its been fun!

The url is www.gunwatcher.com the site is COMPLETELY FREE.

how it works: You type in the gun you want and it searches dozen's of gun stores, AS WELL as auctions ending with 6 hours, or auctions with a Buy it Now. It returns these results in a table and you can quickly click a link to go straight to the page. you can also use the "watch this gun" feature. This allows you to save that model to your "watch list" and everytime you login you can quickly check the current cheapest price of all of your saved guns. It will let you know if the price has raised or lowered since the last time you checked.

I have put more hours than i can count into this project along with a few other programmers. We love any feedback good or bad, just use the contact us link on the page. If you guys like the website please tell your friends, family, social media, forums, etc.. We appreciate any help we can get! Hope you guys enjoy the site, and go save yourself some money!"

Good job, guys!

It looks like the whole "gun search engine" thing is turning out to be a hot sector this Christmas, since we both launched on the same day (I'm from IronSights). I wonder who else is out there about to go live...

steelers87, it would be super mega helpful to me to know what it is about gunwatcher.com that you prefer over ironsights.com. I want our site to be as competitive as possible (and when there's competition, the customer always wins :)

Most of the listings that come up are out of date and no longer valid.
Are you referring to gunwatcher or ironsights? Because if it's ironsights, please let me know which search was turning up bad listings for you. We refresh the listings really often so you shouldn't be seeing invalid ones. If you are, then we need to jump in and fix that.

Very interesting to find this Gun Watcher website. Always interested to see what's out there. Haven't looked at it closely, so must ask, 'Are these CA-roster guns?' I'm currently living in CA, but may move out of state be for too long....

gunwatcher.com collects sales price data from all over the interwebz and compiles it in their site so that current prices and price trends can be researched.

I've used this site several times to find out reasonable prices to buy or sell a firearms.
