AMAZING Customer Service
While the item was great and my son loved the UBAC BTP, the customer service experience is what amazed me. The staff took great lengths to ensure that the item was delivered before Christmas, followed up with me while it was enroute, and made sure that I was happy with the item after it was delivered. SMS has a my loyalty and thanks, Sarah! Your customer service is unparalleled.

“I’m new to the airsoft experience and have spent many days reading opinions of people telling me what setup I should run etc, as you can imagine I got frustrated with this and decided drop in to SMS surplus as it is nice a local to me.
WOW What a fantastic experience!!
As soon as me and my friend stepped foot in the door we were greeted with a smile and a friendly welcome.
We spent probably close to two hours in the shop being given advice and tried on nearly every piece of clothing, goggles, vests and gloves they had.
The lady who greeted us even opened items in sealed bags just so we could have a closer look.
At no point did we feel pressured into buying anything, making the whole experience a lot less stressful and intimidating for me as someone who has no idea what he is looking at.
I will strongly recommend and suggest that anyone looking to get into airsoft should make a trip to SMS and I would like to say a huge thank you to SMS and the lovely lady who took the time to help us, we really really appreciate the amazing service you gave us and we will definitely be back to see you soon.Again thank you.” – Paul Elliott November 2016.
