Marstar is a warehouse operation, not a retail store. We do not have a showroom or a retail outlet (though many of our products are available at select firearms and militaria dealers across Canada).
We are not open to the public for security reasons. Please do not attempt to visit our warehouse: members of the general public and all those who have not booked an appointment with us in advance will be turned away.
We are available strictly on a ‘by appointment only’ basis to the following people:
a) Firearms Dealers who have a valid Firearms Business Licence issued by the Canadian Firearms Centre.
b) Purchasing agents for the military, museums, and law enforcement agencies with departmental authorization on official letterhead.
c) Movie Production Companies with a valid Firearms Business Licence issued by the Canadian Firearms Centre for the use of firearms in movie making.
d) You must be registered under the controlled Goods Act or possess the appropriate security clearance to gain access to Marstar’s facility.
The above are reminded that an appointment must be booked with us prior to their visit and that we do not have the facilities or additional staff to accommodate other visitors (please do not bring friends, relatives, spouses, or children: they will not be permitted to enter the building).
