Firearms come in all shapes, sizes, and calibers. That said, very few are ever deemed tough enough for law enforcement service. This is what makes law enforcement trade-ins so popular. When lives are on the line, you want the firearm best fit for the job. Who better to determine if a gun fits that criteria than the men and women serving and protecting our communities every day?

Law enforcement trade-ins are usually shot a lot less than other used firearms. They have wear from daily duty use, but most LEO only shoot their firearms when qualifying at the range. So, despite mild cosmetic damage from holsters and handling, the barrels and internal components are usually in great condition. This means you can pick up a high-quality firearm with a lot of life still in it at a great price.

In the video above, we discuss several different law enforcement trade-ins that are currently in the warehouse, including a Rock River Arms LAR-15, Sig Sauer pistols, the venerable Glock 17, and older Smith & Wesson revolvers. They were used by a variety of law enforcement organizations, but these guns are by no means done with duty yet. Here’s a peek at just a few of the guns we have in the Vault:
