Brownells was founded in 1937 by Bob Brownell.
Brownell simply took his firearms hobby and turned it into a profitable business.
He loved to customize guns, and once his friends saw his talent he began to receive requests at a higher rate than he could handle on his own.
He needed good tools to help him in his journey, but he was not satisfied with the firearm stores available to him.

At this point, he decided to create a true one-stop shop for firearms hobbyists.
Today, Brownells sells over 90,000 firearms, parts, and supplies.
They focus on Selection, Service, and Satisfaction to keep their customers happy.
They pride themselves in growing to be a location where you can buy “everything you need, all in one place.”
What Is The Official Brownells Military Discount?
OMK spoke directly with a Brownells representative and it turns out that they in fact DO have a military discount.
The discount ranges from 1% – 10% off your order total.
Here’s how to redeem the discount, step-by-step:
Step 1: Click Here to create an account on their website.
Step 2: Once you get to the ‘Additional Info’ section, under ‘Customer Profile’ click the ‘Personal Use’ button.
You’ll then be asked if you are active duty, full time or retired law enforcement, military, or private security personnel.
Obviously you’ll want to click the option that says ‘Yes’.
Step 3: Once you’re done creating your new account, the items that have a military discount will have a line drawn through the price and your discounted price right next to it.
The discounts are all over the place. Some items will be as little as 1% – 2% off, and some items can be as much as 10% off.
Some manufacturers don’t give a discount at all, and some manufacturers discount every item on the site.
Unfortunately, the only way you’ll be able to tell which ones have a discount attached to them is by browsing around the site.
Brownells Military Discount Restrictions
The one good thing about the discount is that you actually don’t even need to prove military service.
With that said, the discount comes with a couple of restrictions.
- You can’t combine it with sale items
- Not every manufacturer offers a discount
Apart from that, there aren’t many other restrictions.
