    Today is Black Friday and my local stores aren’t really doing any crazy good deals. Some are mom and pop shops and others are big retailers.

  2. red9man2130 on December 30, 2022 at 12:53 am

    Aim surplus is also great!

  3. Hound Dog on December 30, 2022 at 12:54 am

    Great video. Many familiar, but good leeds too. You ever heard of Gibbs Manufacturing? Not 100% on that name, but they made wannabe jungle carbine reproductions in .308. Would you be interested in one of those until your jungle shows up?

  4. Sinister Silverado on December 30, 2022 at 12:55 am

    I bought Nagant’s for $17, Arisaka’s for $15, and Mausers for $19, not buying anything until the prices get back to that level

  5. Striker42Six on December 30, 2022 at 12:55 am

    Great list. I’ve been on Atlantic Firearms’ email list for a while, too. They have *fantastic* customer service and are incredibly fast with response to questions you email them. Very knowledgeable people working there and their prices are pretty good, considering the times we’re in now. I’ll definitely have to check out the others. Thanks for the video! Good information to put out.

    Good anaylsis, spot on.

  7. CAPT HAPPY on December 30, 2022 at 12:57 am

    Good info son! 👍

  8. David Doughten on December 30, 2022 at 12:57 am

    Atlantic is great. Got a makarov from them recently and a vz58 sometime last year. Axis arms is awesome too. Bought an arisaka and and Argentine engineers carbine from him.

  9. bk bk on December 30, 2022 at 12:59 am

    any thing on night vision

  10. cannonball666 on December 30, 2022 at 1:00 am

    There are no milsurps anymore. Everything is a collectible.

  11. Jason Gibson on December 30, 2022 at 1:01 am

    400$ for sks give me a break. I remember when nice ones went for 89 bucks

  12. Matt Andrews on December 30, 2022 at 1:02 am

    Today with high mil surp prices and ammo being in the same boat you’re better off just buyin an extra cheap PSA/BCA AR imo.

  13. J33PFYN4TIK on December 30, 2022 at 1:04 am

    Unless your a collector, I don’t think milsurps are worth the price these days. I think the availability and modularity of modern firearms are a much better bang for ones buck. However, it is cool to own a piece of history.

  14. KuKajin on December 30, 2022 at 1:05 am

    gonna be trying to score alot of vietnam era or clone larp stuff this year for black friday. definitely gonna grab a brownells colt carry handle scope this year for my 604

  15. Mike McGee on December 30, 2022 at 1:05 am

    4 or 5 years ago I bought a Cobra denali 380 pistol sale price and rebate got it for $86. Shoots every time I pull the trigger. Kicking myself for only buying one

  16. ChiliLeopard on December 30, 2022 at 1:06 am

    Why talk about 2010???? Yes we see you got a great deal 12 years ago and your talking about what sites offer has nothing to do with Black Friday deals

  17. Jimmie O on December 30, 2022 at 1:08 am

    FYI. Just received an email from Edelweiss Arms regarding a 15% off Black Friday promo code good thru November 30th.

  18. mo money on December 30, 2022 at 1:11 am

    Other than sounding like you’re 12, video was informative. Thanks!

  19. al saunders on December 30, 2022 at 1:11 am

    My brother has an old military rifle that he says is .308/7.62×51 but there are no markings on it, nothing.
    Nothing has been ground off, no markings were apparently ever there. He has shot .308 out of it but I don’t want to do any thing with it until I know what it is.? 🤔🍻
    BTW it is bolt action

  20. Matt Kase on December 30, 2022 at 1:12 am

    Mid- to late-90s was truly the milsurp golden age, with the iron curtain collapse and everything hitting the market (and no import bans). MAS 49/56 brand new unissued with all accessories for $300, $99 Chinese SKSs, $159 Russian SKSs, $99 Makarovs, $130 high capacity Makarovs, $39 Finnish octagonal receiver Mosins, $100 CZ-52s, the list goes on.

  21. Randy Mack on December 30, 2022 at 1:12 am

    I remember seeing surplus rifles (mosin-nagant) being sold, that were missing parts, wood dry rotted, and unsafe for anyone other than an expert gunsmith to handle!!! Buyer beware some surplus firearms require restoration before use, and all need to be inspected for safety! You shouldn’t expect to take it to the Range the day it arrives…

  22. John Dee Smith on December 30, 2022 at 1:14 am

    … using a teleprompter ?

  23. Casey Johnston on December 30, 2022 at 1:16 am

    My first gun was my k98 I paid less than 100 I don’t think I can beat that these days

  24. Weke6 on December 30, 2022 at 1:18 am


  25. Rich Vest on December 30, 2022 at 1:18 am

    There are no milsurp deals

  26. Treasure Monk on December 30, 2022 at 1:18 am

    Yeah some of these will send you junk at full crazy price on a normal day! Imagine what you’ll get on a Black Friday “deal day” 😂

  27. Independent Thinker on December 30, 2022 at 1:21 am

    In the 80’s I could get sks’s for 35.00 each. Got a 75 rd drum for AK for 25.00

  28. Greg Clough on December 30, 2022 at 1:22 am

    Just bought 18 Carcanos from RTI at $150 each shipped and am pretty happy overall. This batch came from Italy so they’re in better condition than the ones from Africa. Really hoping to pick up an SKS for a decent price on a black Friday sale this year. Anyone have any experience with Black Market Arms? They have them for $450 right now.

  29. Doug Shelton on December 30, 2022 at 1:23 am

    Atlantic is good stuff

  30. Alex Zorro888 on December 30, 2022 at 1:24 am

    Great Job and thanks for the heads up on these sites. I will check them out .Your a natural kid!

  31. rb67mustang on December 30, 2022 at 1:24 am

    I have watched a few of your videos in the past, but today I decided to subscribe to your channel. I had a very bad experience with Classic Firearms, and it wasn’t even with a Milsurp Firearm. As for their Milsurp Firearms, I read the reviews first, and I’m read way to many negative reviews as well as friends who’ve received Junk from them and were offered a small precent off if they kept the purchase. Yeah, they have so many that it would be impossible to photograph each firearm so a buyer could make their own choice. But even if that were possible, sometimes its hard to capture a good image of a firearms bore. I wouldn’t Ever Buy a Milsurp from Classic, Period!!!!!

    As for RTI, I was interested in one of their Enfield N05 Jungle Carbines, but they don’t have matching Bolts which can be a big issue when purchasing an Enfield Rifle. RTI doesn’t have that many N05’s in stock that they should take the time to photograph each one so a buyer can choose one. So, I searched online for a N05 and I found a Great Deal on a numbers matching in very good condition at Guns International. After S&H and FFL fees it was still a bit under $700. I gave the bore a very quick cleaning, and it is amazing!!! Get this, all the external metal parts are painted green. This is original to this No5 because under the hand grip and what’s hidden by the stock the green paint looks like new as if I had painted it the day I disassembled it so I could give the stock a good cleaning. The exposed gun barrel and receiver the green paint is dull and has chips from use one of the British Jungle campaigns. It was made in 1945 at the BSA factory.

    So, sometimes you even have to check the firearm auctions that many people shy away from.

    The reason I got my N05 sooooooo cheap was the sellers images were dark and a few were a bit out of focus. I asked a few questions and I found out the Seller was 84 years old and this was the last of his firearms collection. So, never be afraid to ask questions because I asked for an image that showed the serial number on the bolt, and I got what I asked for. 

    Good Luck looking for great deals, they can be found in the least expected places.

  32. Mtiger on December 30, 2022 at 1:26 am

    Aimsurplus is an awesome company!

  33. Robert Williams on December 30, 2022 at 1:27 am

    About 25 years ago i got 3 m1 c for 90 dollars each and still have them

  34. acester86 on December 30, 2022 at 1:27 am

    I’ve heard a lot of bad reviews on Buds. Mostly just when they fuck shit up. Horrible customer service.

  35. mike baird on December 30, 2022 at 1:28 am

    Best Black Friday deal I ever got was a Taurus G2 9mm for 199.00 and tax

  36. SoCal Cigars on December 30, 2022 at 1:29 am

    I really struggle with surplus rifles. I regret not buying a ton back in the day. I just can’t seem to bring myself to spend $899 for a rifle that used to be $150 or less. I have been wanting a K31. What are your thoughts on this rifle? Or maybe a better option for a first surplus rifle that is still reasonably priced?

  37. SunKing on December 30, 2022 at 1:34 am

    Check out Simpson Ltd. in Galesburg, IL….no bulk lots, but individual pieces from private collections. Prices seem fair to me.

  38. TTL America on December 30, 2022 at 1:36 am

    Best Milsurp if you can find them is the FN49. Most in 8mm Mauser but the rare 30.06 is great if you can find em.

  39. Douglas Cieslak on December 30, 2022 at 1:39 am

    Thanks lots of new book marks

  40. Arron Dentinger on December 30, 2022 at 1:40 am

    I recently bought a Carcano cavalry from Classic Firearms for $199 and I’m very happy with the condition of the rifle. There is no major damage of any kind, just the usual light dings and dents on the stock and it had some very light surface rust on the action that came right off with some CLP and light scrubbing. 10 out of 10, would recommend!

  41. Mitch Richards on December 30, 2022 at 1:42 am

    Gunparts Corps in West Hurley used to be a great source for parts when you needed them. That is until the vultures swooped in and bought up the hard-to-find parts and turned around to sell them on Gunbonker and Epay. They buy them from Numrich/Gunparts Corps and mark them up 3x, then pretend they’re doing you a favor.

  42. Nick Musetti on December 30, 2022 at 1:42 am

    Came here for bargains, got a guy telling me how good it USED TO BE. Doesn’t help me at all. His first website has 650 dollar shitty type 56 sks. Palmetto state was doing 450…… no disrespect

  43. Jesse on December 30, 2022 at 1:42 am

    I love the comments ppl saying "I paid X amount back in the 90’s " or whatever. But how much did a combo meal at McDonalds cost? Maybe $3.50? What’s one cost now? Not a penny under $10. A hundred bucks in the 90’s was alot of money, especially if you were young and broke.

  44. Paul E on December 30, 2022 at 1:43 am

    My shooting buddy has a K31, made in !937 w/all matching ## walnut stock..99% cond. he want to sell. Who could apraise it, any ideas?

  45. Hemi Head on December 30, 2022 at 1:43 am

    Back in the early 90’s my local Gun Shop had a case of German Mausers from WWII . The owner told me I could go through the case and grab any I wanted for $50.00 each . Being stupid I passed . Back then they were no big deal . No w MilSurp has gone the way of collector cars . Too many scammers selling junk . Overblown prices , and too many greedy people . I’m out .

  46. Frank Medrano on December 30, 2022 at 1:44 am

    700 bucks man I’d rather buy an AR 15 for that price than an old ass Chinese SKS

  47. Sarge 7000 on December 30, 2022 at 1:49 am

    Great job! My first view of your video’s. I enjoyed not only the material you covered but your presentation style. Thanks again.

    Exec summary: [NB: video is worth the time spent; don’t use this to skip watching! This summary is just to save other from having to pause & take notes!]
    #1 – J&G Sales
    #2 – Axis Arms [never heard of this one before; I’ll have to check it out.]
    #3 – Centerfire Systems
    #4 – Atlantic Firearms [more of a "nifty accessories" vendor in my personal experience, altho’ they’ve had good gun deals in the past that were unfortunately locked out for me due to my residing behind the Granola Curtain. Also had stocking issues since COVID; hopefully they’ll be able to get back on a normal footing again now that life is returning to normal…]
    #5 – DK Firearms [another one I’ve never heard of before.]
    #6 – BUDS guns [NB: well-known and popular vendor with inventory that turns over quickly.]
    #7 – Classic Firearms [High priced hucksters. They may be your only option at times, but usually you can find the same gun elsewhere for a substantial savings. If they offer a special sale, that may bring the price down to their competitors’ regular prices. Unfortunately, they seem to be the primary buyer of SAMCO Global’s inventory from that company’s dissolution a few years ago, so they became a "market maker" and are responsible in no small degree for today’s high milsurp prices, from what I can tell.]
    #8 – AIM Surplus [Good source for ammo in uncommon chamberings. Unfortunately for me, the PRK mandate that all ammo go thru FFLs that went into effect a few years ago has shut down all my online ammo purchases. Looking forward to moving to Free America soon and going back to buying ammo for less and having it shipped direct!]
    #9 – Edelweiss Arms [Key source for Swiss firearms. Nothing is cheap, but deliver good value.]
    #10 – Royal Tiger Imports [Guns are rough, RUFF! from poor storage and hard use, but bargains can be had. Caveat emptor!]

  49. Don Ho on December 30, 2022 at 1:50 am

    While living in AZ I went to a gun show in around 1997 or so. Picked up an SKS from J&G for $89.99. Just like yours.

  50. balista4 on December 30, 2022 at 1:51 am

    Last year a local shop in Houston does 20 percent off everything in the store and they have hundreds of in stock milsurp
