Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is Military Surplus?

    True military surplus is exactly as the name implies – surplus inventory contracted by the military for use by the military that is either no longer needed or is repurposed into other markets. As such, genuine military issue gear will be categorized either in New condition or Used condition. Anything Glenn's sells as used will be in excellent condition and specifics will be given for every item used for sale. All used gear will function effectively for any military critical mission. New condition items will be surplus! Which means it may or may not have tags. We will designate New when we see NO signs of use. New items may have the NSN number blacked out. This happens at the contracted manufacturer's plant when the quantity of merchandise produced for the military contract exceeded the amount the military ended up purchasing, creating a factory over-run. The NSN number is blacked out sometimes to indicate that the gear was not originally sold to the US Military even though it had been contracted by the US Military at some point. We examine all our gear carefully and do a very good job with our categorizations. But always remember – No sales are final and your satisfaction is guaranteed.

  • What gear do you buy from soldiers? And how do I sell my gear to you?

    We will buy any and all military gear you have in excess and want to sell. Please bring everything in that you want to sell at one time and we will quickly go through it and offer you a cash price as well as a trade in price in the event you need additional gear. We will not cherry pick through your gear and only buy some and leave you with gear to get rid of. If it is legal for us to purchase, we will buy it. Excess gear that we cannot use in our retail store is donated to homeless shelters. Some gear is illegal for us to purchase. We cannot buy body armor, optics, electronics and MRE's. All we need is either your driver's license or your military ID.

  • Where do you buy your gear?

    We buy our gear from the US Government at auctions, off the streets from soldiers, and numerous proprietary surplus dealers around the country and world.

  • Is your gear genuine US military products? How can we tell?

    We rarely sell 'after-market' or copies of the genuine gear. If we do, it is clearly stated as 'non-issue' or 'commercial'. All US military surplus gear is made in the USA and this is the easiest way to tell if the gear is issue/legit gear or commercial. Expect all our gear to be issue/genuine gear unless we very specifically note that it is not.

  • Where can you ship to?

    We ship anywhere in the world via US Postal Service. Remember, APO's APE's and FPO's are domestic rates so very affordable!

  • Do you give discounts?

    We do not give discounts because it is our goal to keep our prices low for everyone who walks through the door. We want the experience of purchasing legit-kit at Glenn's to be easy. Besides that, 99% of our customer's are service men and women, whether it be the armed forces or government works and law officials.

  • What makes you different from your competitors?

    Glenn's is the longest running surplus store in Colorado! We have been family owned and operated since 1979. We have experience, we have contacts, we focus on great legit-kit items at good prices with superior customer service – and we have integrity! Our family name is behind every action we take, and we are deeply appreciative of our service men and women. Every day is a privilege to serve our military and law enforcement community.

Glenn's Army Surplus

It's simple at Glenn's... we are good at what we do!

Glenn's is a true, old fashioned army surplus store. Our family has had the privilege of serving the military community as well as state wide Law Enforcement and Department of Corrections communities since 1979. We assist our armed forces stationed at Fort Carson, Shriever AFB, Peterson AFB, the United States Air Force Academy and NORAD as they ETS, PTS, MOS and clear CIF Turn In with USGI gear.

  • We get great stuff, new items every day.

    You can count on us to find great tactical gear at superior prices and to pass these items onto our customers. We are not a fancy operation; we are just a real, approachable, heartland of America, family-run business with superior connections and unbeatable integrity. We operate our business the same way we run our lives: with honor, integrity, and humble, honest hard work! None of us have titles; we all just work for a living, like you do.

  • The only thing that ever changes at Glenn's is our inventory.

    We purchase directly from government at military auctions around the country. That combined with our policy of buying gear directly from our local soldiers creates a wonderful selection of always new, genuine and authentic military surplus to browse through. What you see during one visit may never be seen again. We cannot begin to contemplate listing every item online, so the inventory you see in our online store will be different from what you find in our local store.

If you are remitting payment via any major credit card you will be asked to give the pertinent credit card information including ship to address, bill to address, telephone, email (email is used to send verification of shipment) the security cvc code from the back of your card. If your payment passes through our extensive security that is designed to protect both our valued customers as well as our business then the transaction concludes with your authorization to commit those funds to the desired purchase. We are legally obligated to not collect on your approved authorization until no sooner than 24 hours before the package ships.

If you select PayPal the funds are directly withdrawn from your PayPal account and deposited into our PayPal account according to PayPal's policy.

  • Domestic Shipping Policy

    Your shopping cart will quote you Fed Ex prices and you may select simple ground or a choice of Fed Ex express mail options. We have earned excellent discounted Fed Ex shipping rates and we pass all these discounts onto our customers. There are never any up charges, surcharges nor handling fees. Transit times vary according to the method of transit selected. If you select express shipping we require an email notification in order to push the internal processing to the top of the list. Don't be surprised if your package arrives via USPS Priority Mail; we sometimes switch to this method to better serve everybody. If a tracking number is available it will come to you in the automated confirmed shipment message.

    We ship to APO/FPO, please use APO or FPO as the city and AE, AA or AO etc. as the state for these addresses. APO/FPO will be shipped via USPS Priority Mail according to real time rates.

  • International Shipping Policy

    Glenn's has a lot of experience shipping internationally and we are most happy to process your international order. International customers may select their preferred option from USPS 1st class mail, USPS Priority or USPS Express mail using real time rates by weight. All international orders will incur a $5.00 handling fee per box shipped. This small fee covers insurance and handling. USPS 1st class mail provides NO tracking information and is not recommended. It often takes 3 weeks or longer to customs and moves through customs very slowly. We recommend at least Priority Mail and feel that Express Mail is very much worth the extra expense. Any order over $150 requires Express Mail. Priority Mail provides NO tracking but only takes 7 to 10 business days to customs. Express mail provides tracking from our door to yours and takes 3 to 5 days to customs, once at customs it is given priority handling. Since we insure all international packages both your investment and our service is guaranteed. Insurance cannot be claimed for SIX weeks after the package has gone missing. In shipping over 3000 international packages in the last 3 years not one single package has ever been permanently lost, USPS and the countries we ship to do a fantastic job.
