    Is it just me, or does anyone else think that AIM Surplus is an awesome company? Their prices are always fair, they ship quickly, and the used products that you receive always seem to be in better condition than expected. Also, I love how simple it was to input my C&R License. I didn't have to email and ensure that they got it. It was just a simple scan and insert. I wish other online retailers made things so simple.

    Good company.

    Check J&G and Cope as well.

    CDNN has always been great to me to.
    Check your package well, sometimes they toss free goodies.

    I have purchased several times from AIM and find them to be one the internet sites I frequent on a regular basis when shopping for anything gun related.
    GTG in my opinion

    I, too, think that they are first rate ... which is why I have spent so much money with them over that past dozen, or so, years. ;)

    I purchased a Mosin Nagant Carbine and an SKS from AIM several years ago using my C&R license.

    Both delivered on time as promised and in better shape than I would have imagined.

    And it was nice having the UPS guy bring them right to the house!

    Many transactions with AIM.

    All good.

    They even took back the defective MFS brand (Hungarian) .38 Special ammo, and issued me a refund.

    I've used them for years and lucky enough to be 30 min away a lot if times. Saves shipping, but pay tax. A lot of times they have the mosin wood crates there for $5. Lots of uses for them

    I've bought several times from them, last two purchases were bolt carrier groups for AR builds. While their packing left a bit to be desired, both BG's are performing perfectly.

    I first purchased from AIM in 2003 when I got my C&R. I've made at least one purchase each year, often more, since then. 100% good experiences.

    AIM is a good one, my first choice anymore. Unlike some mail order houses who have become worth-less-than-dirt, AIM still delivers. I like J&G as well.

    I used to go there two times a month when I lived in Cincy. Most of my C&R collection and ammo came from there. They are good people.

    AIM has long been a favorite even before I had the Federally sponsored Brownells discount. :D

    AIM is very good, some have become worthless.

    They are a great company! I have purchased from them many times. They also never raised prices like some during the AR15 shortage.

    I've bought guns, mags, and ammo from them numerous times with great satisfaction.

    I often wonder what they're doing there sometimes since they're usually out of ammo in most popular brands. They are good about sending email when out of stock item comes in, but you need to have push notifications in your email and order within 5 min of receiving notification or ..."poof".. It's gone again.
    I've bought & picked up a couple guns there, but it's mainly my ammo supplier

    A fine company. Since 2006, I've purchased 10 C&R firearms from them with no problems. Excellent customer service and pleasant personnel. 5 stars. ;)

    Agreed. Aim Surplus is tops.

    JoeBobOutfitters and Carolina Shooters Supply rank right up there too.
