got my FFL last week. I have set up an account at Lipsey's and kiesler's. What is another good distributer for things like mags, ammo, and optics? Do places like BCM, Daniel Defense, and Bushmaster work with distributers or is it best to deal with them direct?
We use the following distributors:
RSR- Good overall selection
Acusport- Now selling AAC suppressors, and soon will be selling Silencerco and Remington NFA items (Good for SOT holders)
Ellett Brothers- Lots of hunting and fishing accessories
Davidson's- Prices are a little higher, but they sometimes have what the others are back ordered on
Knesek- NFA items
Shooting Sports Wholesale
We are also a direct seller for Troy Industries, Spike's Tactical, Gem Tech, and a couple others
Some of the larger manufacturers have an extremely high minimum order to become a direct dealer i.e. $50,000 or more of one brand.
Daniel Defense sells through several distributors such as RSR and Acusport. Magpul is another one you can find at some distributors. BCM sells some items through RSR.
For a lot of the companies it is easier to buy through a distributor unless you carry an extremely large $ amount of inventory.
Thanks for the ideas
