Firearms News Visits SARCO Inc.

A Peek Inside One Of The Largest Surplus Companies In the World

Recently Firearms News traveled across the country to give our readers a look inside one of the largest dealers of surplus war material in the country, SARCO, Inc. (Steen Armament Research Company). SARCO is well known to readers of Firearms News as their eye-catching ads have filled our pages since the 1960s. They are famous for the sheer diversity of the items they offer. Machine gun and firearm parts and accessories, reproduction clothing and gear for re-enactors, holsters, firearms, ammunition and all manner of unique pieces from around the world are their forte. Firearms News Senior Field Editor David Fortier had a chance to talk to the company’s founder Charles “Cholly” Steen as he explored inside. Cholly is a wealth of fascinating stories from the Gold Age of surplus and here he takes us on a journey back in time to his early days. We have many more videos on the way, so stay tuned as we explore inside SARCO, Inc!
