My first trip to Gun World was on a Saturday and they were packed. It was no problem waiting the 5 minutes to get help in the packed show room, as I spent the time ogling over case after case of guns. Considering that there are over16 million people in the Los Angeles metropolitan area and that we only three or so large gun store and a half dozen smaller ones, we are woefully underserved. For this reason I can forgive the busy store and the wait.
Of all the gun stores I have been to Gun World has the best stocked with the most knowledgeable sales staff I have seen. Southern California has tremendous deficit of firearms stores.
The sales man was nice and polite. This is a rarity with gun stores so I consider this a real stand out difference between Gun World and the other gun shops I have been to. They made my Kimber purchase a pleasant experience.
They also have the best selection of AR rifle around, LWRC, LMT, Christensen Arms, Smith & Wesson, Bushmaster, DPMS, CMMG, POF, Franklin Arms and even the classic Colt.
Nice Store, great service and good selection I will be back
It's exactly their selection and service that make this the best gun shop in the greater LA area. Their inventory has got to be worth millions...MILLIONS of dollars. And no money on earth could buy the experience and expertise of their staff. I'm always treated well when I go in - and I always come out having learned a little something.
All these 5-star reviews are pure fiction. Their service is bad. Their staff is poorly-informed and often rude and condescending. And worst of all, they are PRICE-GOUGERS. Go anywhere else unless you are all right with paying 25%-100% over MSRP.
I have sold many guns. Gun World has always been fair and up front about their offers. I f it a hot desirable gun you might get 60% of what they are going to sell it for. If I am willing to wait 30 or 60 day and put it on consignment I can get 70%. They stressed that this is on desirable gun in mint condition like Gloc,k SiG Sauers, Kimbers. On old shot guns it going to be half of what they sell it for.
I was lucky. I sold a Sig Sauer 516 that I paid $1600 for and got $1800 but this was at the height of the AR Panic at the beginning of 2013. They lady bellow “sanfernandovalley” must have thought here Ithaca was worth a fortune. I bet she was lucky $25-50 for it and yes they are going to sell it for $100 or even $150. I know from working at gun store when I was young, that those guns can sit for ever and that a store can get dozens of them. When you have 10 of something you are not going to offer much for it. I was told by the owner that it take almost two hours of paper work to log the gun in, do the State and Federal paper work and the pawn broker checks on the gun. Sometime the gun comes back stolen and they are out all of their money.
I thing gun world is a great place to sell guns it is one of only two stores I know of that is always willing to make an cash offer. Most store will not by old firearms and are willing to only do it on consignment.
