Dear Armoury, I am so pleased with every single person that works at the Armoury. My class was a tremendous help sales was so terrific. My over all experience is 120% and more.

Plan on learning more and more. Visiting often❤❤❤

Just wanted to say my family and I had a great time at Guns and Gears this weekend. It was well worth the drive from Monument, CO. Really enjoyed getting the opportunity to chat with Michael Brown and all the staff was very friendly. I had hoped to do better in the poker shoot, but 2nd place will do for this year. Thanks to all of you at 5280 Armory. I’m sure I’ll find a reason to drive up there again soon.

Took a chance on these guys after my usual shop dropped the ball on an order of mine in a big way and having seen their ads at DIA. Have only been in once to purchase an AR platform .22 and felt like I was a long time customer. Spider was a friendly, helpful and relaxed salesman and I had a chance to talk with the owner Matt who was equally gracious. Seems like a well run and established family run business. I will definitely be back to make them take more of my money.
Nathan Glore on September 2015

The people of 5280 Armory are fantastic to deal with, My wife a I drove from Colorado Springs to purchase a firearm after two other visits. The shooting range is world class plus the wide selection of firearms that can be rented played a key factor in helping us purchase a new fire arm.
Side note: The food trailer has the best onion rings.
