These guys are pretty good. They are nice and have a decent shop. They are just south of Allentown.

Anyone else know of other dealers?

Totally agree. Henry is extremely trustworthy and will not let you down. Bought a machine gun from him last year, and it was just as he described. I believe he is an AAC dealer, so he may have Pilots in stock.

Smith Specialty Arms is the place to go. Henry is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to suppressors and he has been in the game for a long time too. He usually has several suppressors in stock however he will only see customers by appointment. Appointment only is kind of nice because you can ask as many questions as you want with out feeling rushed and he usually shows some pretty neat stuff too, not to mention the videos of mg shoots playing while you chat. Def-Con is also a nice place but in my opinion they don’t have the experience or knowledge about the C3 stuff they sell.

As mentioned above, The two guys I trust exclusively are Howard Block of J B Arms, and Henry Smith of Smith Specialty Arms.

I too am in Berks, and they are both about the same distance from me (in Reading.)

David Spiwak in Bloomsburg is very good.

I have bought 2 Vector UZI's (mini/standard) and a Beretta BM-59 from him and traded an EA/RR with Gemech Talon-SD upper to him.

Both are easy to find, and are on a main road.
If you are looking for something "in stock", I'd suggest giving both of them a call. In my experience, Henry keeps more suppressors in stock, while Howard keeps more MG's in stock. Either of them may have what you are looking for though.

Edit to add:
I like both guys equally and consider them friends.
I know they both read these boards, so I don't want to say one is better than the other. Both are fantastic guys.

Thanks for the information. I'll check them out when I get a chance.

If anyone else knows of any other dealers for class 3 items please post them here also. Thanks.

And then there is

Freedom Armory

They're coming out with an Indoor Range real soon.

I've been thinking of a Group Meet there to shoot all of our M16's, Uzi, etc. down there when it opens up in just under two weeks.

We'll be able to rent Machine Guns as part of their new setup. We'll be able to bring our own ammo instead of having to buy in-store ammo like some other places.

I wonder if we can ever get them to give Group Rates?

Are they going to be selling class 3 stuff or just renting machine guns?

They have been a Class III Dealer for some time now. They handled three out of the four NFA Tax Stamps I own.

Boyers in Slatington is not class 3 but Alan Boyer is a helluva nice guy----Keifers is owned by somebody new----seems nice enough, but a little pricey for me and not my type of weapons carried. Henry at Smiths is AAA+ an awesome guy----would recommend him to anybody----AVOID JONES's in Allentown------wont go into it----don't want to badmouth anybody, just heed my warning

Don't know how much closer you're 'gonna find than the two I listed above.
Both guys hit the bigger gunshows, and are not hard to find. Howard has P22's & suppressors listed on his WEBSITE. Henry usually keeps a bunch of cans in stock also.

Did you try calling either one of them ?

You may just have to drive a little to get what you want... Don't know personally of ANY C3 dealers in Berks...

If you're afraid to call/bother them, I'll be happy to call them and BS on your behalf.

Sofar in this thread, you've been given just about every reputable C3 dealer in the Southeast PA area. Take that info and use it.
Link Posted: 2/15/2006 12:10:32 PM EDT
No I'm not affraid to call or contact them. I'm just doing a little research right now. Thanks for the information and I'm sure I will be contacting them in a month or two.
Link Posted: 2/16/2006 10:01:57 PM EDT
Thanks for Henry's contact info. Until last thursday, he had one last Gemtech M402 in stock.

Hey Rugby...

Does THIS LOOK FAMILIAR ?
(Currently hanging on the wall in my brother's office.)

I've been wanting to ask... Where did you get ahold of that funky extended bayonet ???
I'd like to buy another like it.
