Brownells, based in Grinnell, IA, has been a seller of gun parts, accessories, tools, magazines and hard-to-find items — all-things guns — for more than three-quarters of a century. This week, the company has officially stepped into the gun business in its online portal.

It’s hard to fathom anyone who loves to shoot, compete, own, collect and tinker with firearms who hasn’t heard about or shopped at Brownells. Now, Brownells customers may purchase rifles, shotguns and handguns from most major gunmakers and manufacturers.

A press release this week reports the company’s entry into selling firearms online “makes Brownells a true one-stop-shop for gun owners and enthusiasts by offering the gun and nearly any part, accessory or tool possible to make that new firearm uniquely their own.”

The new Brownells firearms section features more than 3,500 production firearms from over 30 popular gun manufacturers, including Smith & Wesson, Glock, Ruger, Winchester, Remington, SIG Sauer, Daniel Defense and many more.

Gun sales at Brownells began Nov. 9.

“We’ve been a gun company from the beginning,” said Pete Brownell, CEO of Brownells. “For 77 years, we’ve serviced all corners of the firearms market – new shooters to gunsmiths. This is just one example of many upcoming programs we’ll be launching to serve every portion of the gun industry.”

Customers may order guns online using the simple, step-by-step instructions at the Brownells FFL page. The quickest, easiest method for completing an online gun purchase will be to choose a Brownells Featured Dealer from the online list of FFL dealers who have agreed to perform transfers on guns bought from Brownells.

FFL dealers interested in becoming a Brownells Featured Dealer can learn more at Featured Dealer Portal.

Review: Smith & Wesson Shield Plus

In retrospect, Smith & Wesson had nobody to blame for the situation but themselves. The company didn’t invent the subcompact, lightweight, single-stack nine, of course. Walther and Beretta had preceded the original Shield to market by a few years with the PPS and the Nano, respectively, and Kahr had more or less created the niche back in the 1990s.
