Nope, same guns as any other shops carry. Think about it, they are the largest seller of guns in the US, that would be a lot of second hand guns. Makes no sense, old wives tale.

Maybe, maybe not. As the largest gun seller in the country, it would not be unusual for them to place an order for guns that are built the way they want them, for example - to get the price point where they want it.

Cosmetically I would agree, as far as Internal parts and wear items I really don't see that happening. To much of a liability. As far as the original poster's question of 2nd hand, that's complete hogwash.

They are the same as you would buy any where else.

I can't speak for other companies, but for remington, here's how it works. If you call remington up and order thousands of guns, you can pretty much get them how you want them. They are no lesser quality than any other vendor. That's why you see guns at Walmart, Dick's, Gander, etc that are not on the remington website or catalog; they buy in bulk. That's why you don't see the model 700 ADL in the catalog.

The old "WalMart sells seconds" crap is ancient - and, as you've seen, wrong.

WalMart warrants every tire they sell. There's no way they're going to sell substandard tires, and expose themselves to high warranty claims and increased expense.

I've bought probably 10 or 12 full sets of tires from WalMart in the past 20 years; Goodyears, Bridgestones, Dunlops, and generic-labelled Coopers. NOT ONCE have I had a problem with any single tire, and their tire installers are just as good as any working at a name-brand tire shop.
