Maryland Antique Arms Show- Timonium 9/30-10/1

The Maryland Antique Arms show is coming around again in a couple weeks. It's similar to the big show there in March but it's not quite as large. If you like older C&R and Antique stuff like me it'll be fun to go to.

Admission is $10

9/30-10/1

At the MD State Fairgrounds in Timonium

I have never been to this show. Is there typically a good selection of actual c & r guns? Fair prices?
Thanks!

Tons of C&R rifles, no C&R pistols (no modern handguns allowed, i.e., post 1899). Prices tend to be a premium at the antique arms shows. You can sometimes find a relative bargain, but people there tend to be dealing in higher end collectibles. It is worth the trip just to look though... like walking through a museum where you can pick up the pieces. Want to actually be able to look at a genuine LeMat revolver... here is your chance. On a number of occasions, I've had dealers let me check out beautiful weapons in the 70-150K range.... where else are you going to get that opportunity for the $10 cover :-)

I think doc hit the nail on the head . You may find a bargain but most dealers are trying to recoup overhead on a single sale. It's still worth a look if you don't have anything else to do .

Thanks. I think I will try and stop by. I need to find a place where i can find some good C & R prices. Still a lot I really want to add to the collection just not sure what I want to start with and where. I went to Gettysburg but only had a few minutes to walk through. Can't wait until the next good show.

Thanks

Bump

I’ll hopefully be there when it opens tomorrow. Too bad it’s the same weekend as Chantilly but at least it’s not as far as a drive for me

I guess it’s called the “Cow Palace”. It’s the larger building there. Not the one they usually do the Silverado and AP gun shows in.

Just got back. Kinda struck out. Most of the guns there are Civil War/Wild West related. Not much C&R/WW1-2 stuff that I like besides militaria.

I did manage to bring home a nice book on Japanese Bayonets though

Small show

Went today (Sat.) about 10:00. Looked like about 100 tables. No C&R, all muzzle loading black power. Very small crowd. It is truly a Civil War show. If that is all you are interested in it may be worth a visit.
