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 military surplus 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 at our Army surplus store 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, and how do I sell 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 surplus gear?

We buy our gear from the US Government at auctions, off the streets from soldiers, and numerous proprietary sources around the country and world. We have a rotating selection of US Military gear and foreign military surplus and collectible militaria.

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.

Do you give discounts?

We do not give discounts at our Army surplus store 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.
