Military components are typically some of the finest quality electronic parts in use. The federal government spares no expense outfitting the armed forces with top-of-the-line electronics. Because of their high quality, the after market for discontinued and obsolete military components is perennially hot. Independent distributors buy up large inventories of obsolete military components, then sell the parts to consumers at reasonable prices.

The high demand for military components translates into a thriving business for these independent distributors. The military and companies with surplus inventories of military components generally do not have the expertise or experience to efficiently market their excess inventories. Rather than pay high carrying costs for parts that they will not be able to sell, many companies are quite willing to unload their extras for rock-bottom prices. These companies would rather get rid of the equipment for a very small profit than pay to keep them it in inventory.

Military Components Distributors

This is how military component distributors are able to offer their customers such low prices on sophisticated equipment. They can sell semiconductors, circuits, switches, relays, and other military surplus gear at discounted prices. Distributors either store inventories in their own warehouse, or work on consignment. Consignment deals allow the distributor to act as a middle man for someone else’s military components. Even if the distributor does not carry the part in stock, it has access to another company’s database of available parts and can quickly and easily locate even hard-to-find components.

A good distributor of military components will certainly maintain a well trained, professional sales staff, but the easiest way to shop is online. Right from your own home or office, you can browse available inventories and check prices 24 hours a day. You may search by part number or manufacturer, and the site should list quantity in stock. Parts will be shipped directly to you at an address you specify.
