For those who aren't aware, there is a glitch in the armory that allows you to have infinite time to get the guns. As you are walking towards the end of the hall past the code-locked door after Knoxx's fight, the last floor partition before you reach the red room is not solid. If you move around slightly you will glitch through the floor. You should see some blue checkered tiles as well. From here, just crouch and drop down into the room. The timers should be stuck showing about 2:33:86.

Explore the rooms and if you get full and want to sell some guns, just use a rocket to kill yourself (you will lose money, but the guns should compensate) and you will respawn near the vending machines and from here you can just walk back to the armory, glitch through and keep looting. Even if you jump from the highest point you will not die, so don't waste your time, just use the rockets. There are about 4 levels so make sure you poke around to find all of them.

You can also exit the game and restart when done to refill the chests, but you will have to kill Knoxx again, which is worth it in my opinion. Enjoy!

This glitch is still in effect as of August 2012, any updates to say whether it still works after that date would be appreciated.

If your Armory run is done on one of the quests that Marcus gives you (so anything other than the first quest into the Armory), don't go into the area under elevator as it will complete one of the objectives out of order and screw up your quest completion. If this happens, Dashboard immediately and then reload your game. This will reset that quest's progress and you'll be fine.

NOTE: I understand that it is not a true solution, but I would like people to be aware of this (possibly intentional) glitch so they can better enjoy the game.

Here is an example video with some extra tips, which I do not take credit for (credit goes to the cool British guy, DrSkelde):
