1) Repairs – We offer full repair services to Firearms, Airsoft, Paintball, BB and Air Guns. Please remember that ALL items brought into the store must be in a bag of some sort and secured as required by law. And please, by all means, makes sure there is NO ammunition still in the firearm itself.
Gunsmithing – All types of gunsmithing services are provided.
Fee - $50 non refundable deposit at time firearm is accepted into the store. After any firearm(s) is inspected and troubleshooting completed, an estimated final cost can be provided if required before repairs begin.
Airsoft, Painball, BB & Air Guns
All types of repair services are offered.
Fee - $25 non refundable deposit at time item is accepted into the store. After item is inspected and troubleshooting completed an estimated final cost can be provided if required before repairs begin.
2) Consignment –
We can consign sale many different items, not just firearms. We use a system by which we establish a price with you that you will get for your item upon sale.
We then apply our % on top of that price.
This way its a clean deal for you as you know what you will be getting and will not be getting those annoying calls every few days about change of price.
It gives Poco Military the ability to provide flexible sale negotiations on items and sell them quicker.
If by any chance your item does not sell in the first 3 months we would then call to discuss a change in pricing.
Please take a look below at a summary of what the process will be:
How It Works:
Up to $500
$500 - $1,500
$1,500 and Up
We can take in consignments via mail too, but please be aware we will need a scan of your firearms license first. Also all shipping fees (to us and back to you if you want the consignment item back) will be paid by the consignee.
3) Meeting Room Use
We have a meeting room set up on our mezzanine for all types of meetings. Rates will be dependent upon type of meeting, length etc.

Private Firearms & Ammo Sales – 15 min Room Rental
If you are selling your firearm(s) and/or accessories yourself, but would rather not close the deal at your home, nor provide such information to a stranger or meet at a strangers place, or at a parking lot etc. , for a nominal fee of $25 for 15 minutes you can book one of our meeting rooms to meet at, providing you a safe and neutral place to complete your transaction.
Private meetings – If you have a group of up to 25 people we can accommodate them in our meeting room.
Room is set up with tables and chairs and has electrical outlets. The fee is $200 per day.
4) Brokerage – On-line sales only:
As a firearm owner you may not be comfortable with in-store consignment for whatever reason and just want us to list you item online.
Developing an ad with pictures, investing the time to post it on multiple sites (i.e Canadian Firearms, Used Firearms, etc), monitor/ renew the ad / respond to all the email inquiries, negotiate the sale of a firearm or accessory to the point of an actual sale.
The system is as follows:
Firearms must be brought into the store so we can verify all details and take photographs.
Restricted items – These takes more time to process with transfers and assurance of legalities. Fee for this service is $25 non refundable deposit and once firearm sale is completed a 15% fee based upon final selling price before tax.
Non-restricted items - Fee for this service is $25 non refundable deposit and once firearm sale is completed a 10% fee based upon final selling price before tax.
We welcome items from across Canada (with proof of legal licencing) and all shipping fees would be paid by seller and buyer as it applies.
5) Brokerage / Intermediary Service for Firearms Sellers & Buyers:
This is a confidential service designed to help alleviate some the concerns and some of the potential dangers for private individuals buying and selling firearms, accessories and ammunition on line.
Whether you’re a seller or buyer, long distant transactions can pose risks for people on both sides of the transaction.
From the exchange of money to the release of personal information, including but not limited to your Pal info and home address, information that identifies you as a firearms owner which in the wrong hands could be used to steal your identity and/or put your home at risk for a targeted firearms theft, potentially placing your family in harm’s way.
Notwithstanding the risks you face of sending your cash and your personal information to a stranger who never intends to complete the transaction, leaving you out of pocket and putting your identity and home at risk of theft. Last but, not least, receiving an item you ordered that is not what you ordered and/or in the condition represented and/or as pictured in the ad.
Poco Military's is an incorporated company that has been in business for 10+ years with a strong reputation for honesty and customer service. We are fully licensed and would be happy to work for you as a Broker / intermediary under the following system:
The seller or buyer will either first drop by, call us or send us an email outlining the details for the transaction they wish us to facilitate and provide the requisite contact information for both parties, names being used, non-personalized email and/or phone number and who will be paying for our service. We will verify for the buyer and seller each other’s Pals in confidence from each other, neither sharing actual names or details of each party with the other to complete the transaction, holding this information in confidence like we do for our consignment customers but giving them the assurance the Pals were verified. In accordance with the Firearms act.
In the case of the seller, they will then send/drop off the firearm/item etc. to Poco Military, when the buyers funds have cleared our account.
The buyer knows their funds won’t be transferred to the seller unless the item has been received and checked by Poco Military. Should the item(s) be damaged or not as advertised and the sale fall through, the buyers funds will be returned to them.
We will only ship out the item(s) to the buyer once we have confirmed the buyers and sellers Pals, the condition of goods and the buyers funds have cleared to our account, at which point we will either electronically transfer the funds owed to the seller or the seller can drop by and pick up the funds owed to them by cheque or in cash if they prefer.
Please be aware the transfer process concerning Restricted firearms can take weeks to complete sometimes.
Fee for this service is 15% of the final selling price before tax for Restricted items and 10% for Non Restricted items. This is over and above any applicable shipping fees.
Brokerage fee is not refundable.
