Web Spider Searches Multiple Gun Forum Classifieds

Elite Deal SeekerLooking for firearms and accessories on the web? You can spend hours cruising Forum Classifieds. Or, with one click, you can view items for sale on 20 different gun forums. Using robotic web spider technology, EliteDealSeeker.com collects active “for sale” listings from around the web, displaying them all on one page, sorted by site. The subject line for each ad is displayed as a clickable link. It’s a great system that makes shopping for bargains fast and easy. Most of the listings are for optics and accessories for AR15 or semi-auto style rifles, and for handguns, but you can still find a bargain out there and this technology can save you lots of time. You can set the time span for ads to display — from the last 24 hours (minimum) to the past 28 days (maximum). For starters, we suggest you search for the last 5-7 days of classified ads.

Our own AccurateShooter Forum Classifieds are spidered, and you’ll find other good deals on precision shooting stuff on the Accurate Reloading Forums, on RimfireCentral.com, and Snipershide.com. The chart below shows the complete list of spidered gun-related websites. A “webbot” visits all these sites daily, grabbing the latest sale items for you to review. You can set display preferences so your favorite sites appear at the top of the list.
