CC Military Surplus

Post by master7000 » Wed Mar 31, 2010 9:52 am

Is CC's a good store for airsoft? Cause if it is I might try to get there tomorrow to look around. Are the prices to high though? Cause Erik told me once that retails store charge a lot is this true? And how's there selection does it have a lot of guns and such. And last but not least which store is better the one in Brooklyn Park or the one in Maplewood?

My opinion...CC's is ok as a last resort for bb's, gas, or gear. Their selection of guns (and specialized gear) isn't very good and they aren't the cheapest around. So long as it isn't out of the way for you, CC's is still worth a visit just to look around (at least once). In my experience, the two stores are about the same; the Maplewood one is a little bit easier to get in and out of (the driveway to the parking lot of the BP one is in an odd intersection).

If I needed something RIGHT NOW and couldn't find it anywhere else, I would consider CC. Otherwise, I have found the best sources for gear/guns/supplies are online.

I don't think there is any way I would buy a gun from CC. During one visit there, I saw they had a JG/E1 M4 for over $600...You can get that same gun from online sources for around $150 shipped.

To much....any GBB from them will be at a 50% premium over online sellers...plus that is a WE Luger...ick...might as well flush your money now...

Dont buy bbs at C&C unless you really need them. KSC .20's are sold for $11- $13 a bag at other places while they sell them for $25 a bag. That is a 50% markup. Dont I REPEAT DONT buy cheap bbs. It is a waste of money as whatever pennies you save purchasing them will be spent in repairs 3 to 5 times what you would have if you just buy good bbs.

Online retailers will have the best prices in general. sometimes individuals (like irish or skunk) have bbs for sale at open sessions, ask first.

Us C.A.P. Cadets go to CC's for our uniform items, so I see their airsoft inventory change. They are pretty much all clone guns, with the prices jacked up WAY too high, and even so it is very limited in selection. They had a leapers red dot sight that I wanted for $70. I bought it from ASGI for just $35.

my experince with cc is that the only things you should do there is to buy bdu's or have your gun repaired other than that there stuff is horrendously overpriced

DT Tactical. There I mentioned it. :mrgreen:

and just for the record.....

We are stocking a lot of items now (Most popular) so we do have stock on hand. But one way we keep our prices so low is we do not have millions of dollars of inventory just sitting around. I only have about $8k worth sitting here. :D

But in the end, I can get just about anything! Just need to ask.

**Disclaimer I'am A CC Military Surplus Employee and am kinda one sided sorry**

Do you carry only airsoft equipment or a multitude of military type items?
I understand CC's prices are high compared to online but in all reality he is correct we carry millions in inventory. The fact of the matter is we have it at the store when you need it. I'm not saying we are better then anyone or that our selection is better. I'm just saying stop by check us out. It never hurts to look. Plus we have an actual surplus section that has many cheap items that you may find useful.
I'm sorry if I have stepped on any toes. I just joined the airsoft world and don't know anything about anything. Just trying to feel the sport out and see if it is something I would like to pursue to a higher level. Sorry for getting off topic.

I welcome retailer involvement here. Please don't be too sensitive as you read things (something I've had to learn) it's just talk on the interwebs. The MAA has always said the CC Military serves a specific purpose in the Airsoft community and that having ANY stores in the metro is to our benefit....but in the end the buyers have to be educated and savvy. Having a place to just drive to and touch a piece of gear is invaluable.

I am not going to start a fight here. I have never bashed CC Surplus with the exception of the Kids that work at the Maplewood Store that were shooting airsoft guns over my kids head. BTW, I was there the other day and again, KIDS shooting airsoft guns when customers are in the store.

Anyway, CC Surplus does serve a function. If you need it now or want to see an item before you buy it, then go there. Hell, I do tons of market research there. I have even been known to buy a thing or two there as well.

I was just giving my own site/store a little plug. Hell, people do that to my posts all the time.

Anyway, this is such a great country we live in. People have the power to choose where they want to buy things. I commend them for that!

Mind if I throw in another local store that I've never seen mentioned on the boards? Battlefield Store. I've only been in there once. Not sure if they sell anything specifically for airsoft... they might carry a replica airsoft pistol or two, but they carry a lot of really nice WWII gear, and I think it's all legit either used or issued from WWII. I don't remember how the prices were, but I do remember seeing a bunch of different WWII uniform pieces, canteens, etc etc. I think I remember seeing some flecktarn there too... they have a LOT of books though... Anyways, it's definitely worth checking out, especially if you're piecing together a WWII uniform. I'm pretty sure they had most country unifroms from WWII (not sure if they had any french, italian, or japanese uniforms, but then again I haven't been there in a while). But yeah it's definitely another store to consider in our community.

CC Military Surplus employee,

I'm sure the owner has been asked to sell "Real Deal" gear before. But it would be nice, to have a local store that has in stock. Actual items that I, someone who doesn't buy replica airsoft gear can buy. On the spot, when need be. I know lots of guys in my unit who would buy gear from CC if they had "Real" gear instead they shop online.

Fatal,

What do you consider "REAL DEAL" Gear and "Replica Airsoft" Gear?

I am just curious....Because I stock a lot of gear now on site so people can buy.

Well I do not carry much Eagle Gear due to people not wanting to spend the cash. I do stock BlackHawk and tons of Condor Gear. For the record, BlackHawk and Eagle are owned by ATK. While they are seperate, they are the same. Their customer service now sucks even more than before.

I also sell more condor Gear to front line troops than all the other gear manufactures put together. Reviews have been off the charts....

While I haven't talked to Eagle for about 3 months, I have always had great customer service from them. Anytime I have ever had a problem with one of their products (which has been rare) I have gotten my gear replaced for free.

LBT, another great small company that makes kit that really works. There are just great pieces to their kit that you can't find in knock off gear. They also have some really good customer service. They also are one of the companies that are cutting edge with make kit lighter. Not stealing designs from other companies and re-branding them. They just came out with a riggers belt that is lighter and stronger then the metal triangle versions.

Tactical Tailor, I haven't gotten many things from them. But when I do, it's on above average and well thought out for sure.

BFG, another awesome company. I love their 10 speed line, which is awesome for "combat" where you aren't reloading every 10 minutes.

Paraclete, do I even need to go into them, probably some of the best kit money can buy.

Crye, if it's issued to Marines in the two war zones, it's good enough for me. Their FROG gear and combat shirts are amazing. Their plate carriers are cutting edge, hell the whole company is cutting edge.

Condor, I'm not a huge fan of them. They aren't made in the USA (their slings are) but everything else isn't. They also have stolen designs from every company I have listed and then some. Which really ticks me off, someone gets a pouch that now doesn't have anything backing it. Their jackets, backpacks, pouches, plate carriers are all stolen designs from companies in the USA. I mean it's fine for airsoft don't get me wrong. But I wouldn't put my life in the hands of some knock off gear company ever.

The gear at CC, is even lesser quality then Condor. Yes, I know they carry Condor as well. There are a few things I would buy at CC, such as Camelbak... until I look at the price. I'm no idiot, and I'm not going to be screwed in my wallet. Give a fair price and I'll be more then happy to support a local business.

Just my $0.02

This is not a true statement. Condor has an entire line of products (not just slings) that are made entirely in the USA. They have to comply with the Berry Amendment in order to do military sales. If you want a list of current items made in the USA, I can get it. It is just too many to list.

As far as Condor stealing designs from other company's. HELL, EVERYONE DOES IT! Blackhawk does it, Eagle Does it, TT Does it. Everyone is out there looking at other peoples products and taking them and either copying them or putting their own twist on them. So it is just not Condor. Hell, Last year I saw many of the manufactures listed in other booths at SHOT. Writting notes and even taking pics when staff was not looking.

I know this year will be no different.

and for the record, Fatal knows I am not fighting with him. He knows that I respect him and I know we both know what we are talking about....Love ya bro!

First off DT, let me just say the only thing I would fight you for. Would be to see who is the big spoon in the bed. With that being said, I am a huge gear queer. I'd be the Boy George of gear, or the Julian Assange of gear. I love learning about gear and having a decent amount of knowledge of gear. So I would like to know all the gear they offer made in the USA. My list of stuff that is made in the USA came from their website. Which may or may not be up to date with all USA made product. You are right, everyone steals ideas for gear and throws their twist onto them. Which is lame, but I understand my problem with Condor is that they don't make any attempt to change the design. I haven't seen one item from Condor that was an original Condor design. Which I would rather see then to bash Condor, because they have their place.

But in my opinion, which all this is. Is that they don't deserve a place in the "Real Deal" gear market until they can prove to make their own designs. They're more then acceptable to be used in airsoft, they are quality products.

Coming back to the original topic -

I think that CC performs a neccessary service - that is, readily available gear in a storefront - that we all benefit from. I've made purchases there myself and I've been amazed at some of the stuff they have in the store (for example, the complete USN VBSS vest I saw last time I was there).

On the other hand, I think that anyone who shops there needs to be an informed consumer. Case in point is the AEG I mentioned earlier in this thread. This was a JG/E1 gun going for over $600. To make matters worse, the guy behind the counter claimed it was a "blowback" gun. When I pointed out to him the mechbox, clearly visible inside the magwell, he said it was an "automatice electric blowback". Knowing for a fact that JG does not make a gun of this type, I decided to just walk away.

If I had been a new player who didn't know any better, I could have gotten ripped off big time, paying close to four times as much for the gun, and then finding out it didn't have the features he claimed it did.

This was my only experience with CC, but it really rubbed the wrong way.
