I've been visiting Green Mountain Guns for several months.They were extremley busy earlier,so I didn't expect to be spoken to unless I pushed my to the counter.No problem with that.More recently,they have slowed down a little and several of the guys ask me if I need help every time I visit.Staff is friendly and knowledgeable,haven't seen any grumps here at all.Prices are in line with every other shop I visit,and I often find used guns for a bargain price.Bullets are a little scarce,but they have plenty of primers.Powder is not stocked out on the shelf,and I haven't asked recently,so I can't say much there.The selection of firearms is real good,people treat me good,and I will continue to spend my money here.
I have been trading with GMG for more than 25 years. They are an extremely busy shop with mostly great staff. I find the prices to be about the best in the Denver area for guns. Are they perfect? No. But neither am I. Take the whiny comments with a grain of salt.

Took a weapon in to put on consignment and was advised it was a ""collectors item"" and only worth $70-$80. They would be ""happy to sell it"" for me..... I kept the weapon and went to 2 other shops- Both said it was a collectors item and one shop valued it at $800-$1000. The owner of the other shop offered me $850 cash. He now owns the weapon. The guys at Green Mountain are either: 1) not too knowledgeable, 2) too lazy to do 5 minutes of research or 3) trying to lowball consignment sellers so they can buy the weapons themselves. I think #3 is a good guess.

Could not agree with the comments more. This staff looks at you like they are doing you a favor if you can even get there attention. I buy a lot of guns. I don't go to a store to hold them, I go to buy. I waited at the counter for over 20 minutes in a shop with 3+ employees and not one person could help. I started an account on citysearch just to say how poor this shop is. I hope I can find another store to spend $1,900 at......

GRUMPY OLD MEN!!!!!!!!! I went in to purchase a new rifle (AR-10) and nobody in the store wanted to help me and when someone did help me they were EXTREMELY RUDE.!! The person that made an attempt to answer my questions was distracted by his buddy behind the counter and then walked away as if I wasn't even there. This wasn't the only bad experience at green mountain guns I called them to ask a question about ammunition and was left on hold for 15 minutes and they never responded. DO NOT GO INTO GREEN MOUNTAIN GUNS IT WILL BE A WASTE OF YOUR TIME!!!
My recommendation is 5280 armory very helpful

As has been clearly identified by others, not only is the staff rude, they have little to no knowledge about their store's inventory. There are plenty of people 'working' there but the last item on their to do lists is wait on customers. They stand behind the counter chatting with each other, looking at the guns, anything but make eye contact with potential customers.
Finally, when someone did talk with me, they knew absolutely nothing about the item.

I would bet all of the 5 star reviews given are from employees who work at the store who have nothing better to do on their lunch breaks. Just a thought...
The customer service in this store leaves much to be desired. The employees who work there are next to rude. I walked into their shoddy store and was ignored for about 15 minutes. A female walks into the store and the creeps catered to her customer service needs right away. Its only obvious these guys dont get laid. So anyway, I put a remington on consignment and they basically used my gun as an example of what not to buy and steered people into buying their overpriced guns.
The gun dealers in this store only care about making a buck off your needs. They think they know it all just because they have an ATF dealers license and they can't answer a simple question. The creep didnt even know what a riser mount for a scope is when asked if they carried such a thing. These neo-cons know they will be out of a job when the liberal czars like nancy peloci effectively ban guns so in the mean time they are turning the gun industry into a scam, charging their overpriced 20% consignment fee and $35 transfer fee. Avoid this store like the plague! There are better options out there when it comes to gun stores.

I used to by guns going back to 1980s. Sadly since the owner left I think his name was Don, but not positive. the store has gone down hill the new owner Dons ex wife and his kids have destroyed this great gun store. Employees rude, put a gun on consognnet and never get a call it was sold, and so on. To bad this used to be the only place I would by a gun. NO MORE.

I have to agree with the poor customer service reported here. I have been to this store several times and service is horrible. Couple months ago, I was searching to purchase two AR-15. Called and asked for a specific brand and model. Was told they had several in stock. Made the 2.5 trip to them and not a single model of the brand much less the model I was looking for. When I was finally asked if I needed help, I did purchase a rifle, however as soon as I was entered in the system, the sales clerk disappeared. 1.5 hours later, I asked another person if they could check and see if I was approved. Very rude, asked really snotty how long I was in system. By now I am pi$$ed. I said over an hour and a half and the clerk helping me disappeared. Guy said your done. Walked off got my gun, took my cash. No thank you for purchase, no sorry you had to wait, nothing. Acted like it bothered him to have to get the gun I purchased. Went up the road to 5280, bought $3500.00 worth of guns and accessories for the 2 AR's. One stores loss is anothers gain. Will never set foot in Green Mtn. Guns again and have told every shooter I know of my experiences there. Funny, some of them relate the same treatment.

It sounds like the last review was written by an employee or the owner trying to feebly defend their poor reputation ha ha. I would definately have to agree with the negative reviews previously written. As a customer I do not want to be greeted or converse with a ""know it all"" I simply just want to be greeted in the first place. I am extremely disappointed with the service green mountain guns fails to provide and I definately agree with whoever said that Walmart was a better place to buy a rifle. This was my expierince (long story short). I walked in and saw three or four employees standing behind the counter doing nothing but holding the counter down. There was one other customer in the store besides myself and not one person acknowledged I was there. I stared at an $1800 M1A for about ten minutes ready to purchase it as soon as someone let me hold it and pull the trigger a couple times but had no luck. (they get extremely irritated when you dry fire one of their firearms by the way) So I took myself and my money to a gunshop on 470 and Sante Fe where I saved myself about $250 on the same exact rifle that same day. Green Mountain guns must sell a lot of firearms to afford losing customers left and right. I have given this place three or four chances and have finally given up. If your buying your first firearm do not go here under any circumstance. Do your homework and go to a buisness that makes you feel comfortable and confident with your purchase. Go to a place that is knowledgable and willing to take the time to educate you. Essentailly go anywhere but this gun shop.

I am surprised at the reviews that find the sales staff at Green Mountain to be snooty, snobish, etc. That has not been my experience at all. I am frequently asked if they can show me anything in the cases. I am also frequently greeted by name by one member of the staff. The others don't know me, but are always friendly. There is a retired Lakewood police officer there that is always quite helpful. I can't explain why some people posting had such a bad experience. My suspicion is that it is like being around ""know it all"" horse people. Perhaps the staff did not properly acknowledge the customer's incredible breadth of firearms knowledge. This is my favorite shop in the metro area. They have a good selection, and their prices are typically around 10% over cost.

This store sucks. The guys (idiots) working there never seem to have the time to help you when you come into the store. It seems that it is a good ole boys store and if you don't want to stand around telling B.S. stories you aren't worth it. trying to get someones attention is next to impossible, I wonder why they don't have more shoplifting issuses. It seems like everytime I go in to get something they want to bait and switch what I am doing. If I ask for a .357 158gr. fmj don't try to sell me
38 special.......... I have a vast knowledge of firearms and now what I need. I have purchased several firearms over the years from this store when the Dad ran the place. Now the son has ran it into the gutter. Several friends have bought firearms from this store on my recommendation, so now the same friends have been told of my disapointment in this place. I truely think the owner needs to revisit his staff and FIRE THE WHOLE LOT OF THEM !!!!!!!!! And read some of the write ups about YOUR BUSINESS.. GET A CLUE.

These guys suck. This is by far the worst gun store I have ever been too. I have spent thousands of dollars here over the years and I still don't get the time of day when I walk in. There are always a group of employess standing around doing nothing but ignoring people that walk in the door. When I did get someone to talk to it is clear that they have no idea what they are talking about and I was always treated with very little respect. I highly recommend you drive out of your way to a gun store that is not as overpriced and not run by a bunch of a$$holes. It absolutely amazes me that this place is still in buisness. If the owner had half a brain he would either fire the idiots he has working there or have someone explain to him what the phrase ""customer service"" means. You will be much more satisfied buying a gun at Walmart rather than this joke of a gun store.

I hesitated to visit this store because of the reviews here but I went anyway to see for myself. I made a total of 3 trips in 3 days looking to buy my first rifle. The staff was attentive, polite, and very informative answering my beginner questions being new to rifles. They greeted me when I walked in but left me be as I walked through the store. I never stood at the counter for more than a minute without at least being acknowledged that someone would be with me and this was on a Friday and Saturday so they were busy. They even asked my wife if she needed help as she patiently waited for me.
Their consignment rifle selection was the best out of all the stores I visited including local shops and the big box stores. I decided on one of their consignment rifles and the sales person went over every inch of the gun with me making sure I knew what I was looking at and took the time to explain the significance.
I walked in as an informed shopper and walked out with exactly what I wanted at a price that rivaled any online sale I could find. I don't know what the people who posted negative comments were expecting but when I'm looking to buy another gun I'll be heading to Green Mountain guns first.

If I could rate Green Mountain Guns zero stars I would.
When you enter their shop, although there always seems to be 6 or 7 employees working there it is impossible to get anyone to help you, as they seem more interested in standing around talking to each other. If you do manage to get someones attention to look at a weapon they offer no information at all about the gun, nor do they ask you any questions in regard to what you are looking for in order to point you in the right direction.
When I went in recently to have a friend, who is extremely knowledgeable about semi automatic rifles examine a DPMS rifle I was thinking about purchasing, the idiot behind the counter would not let us disassemble the gun AT ALL to see the condition it was in. If this is your policy regarding people that are willing to pay you hundreds of dollars, maybe you ought to reconsider it. I wouldn't buy a car without looking under the hood, and I hope you wouldn't expect people to buy guns from you without letting them closely examine it.
I won't be back.
