Oh yeah there were some fake Martini Enfields there just be careful whenever you see those there. They are Afghan copies when I want the real thing. The Markings on the Afghan ones are fake and there are websites that tell you the difference. I didn't expect to see any there so I had forgot what to look for. Hence I didn't buy one.

So what was the overall thoughts/review of this Silverado show?

Was it worth admission? Good showing from vendors? Any good deals to be had? What other show (upcoming) would you recommend?

Smaller than other Silverado shows in the past, but I saw more Japanese Type38s than I've seen in several years.

Chantilly show this weekend is, well, much larger and more varied, but I shop for C&R so it should be good.

It was better than previous Frederick shows. good assortment of shotguns, O/U, SxS, pumps. Some good deals to be had for used shotty’s.

Those vendors selling new guns seemed to be priced around MSRP. Some “show discounts” on overstock or old inventory, but most prices were not indicative of motivation. Bulk ammo was very close to online prices, good to see.

AR Uppers- do these retailers/vendors not do ANY internet comparative pricing?

I’ve been a supporter of the Silverado shows, attend a few a year. Same vendors showing the SAME product show, after show, after show. Same prices, same ratty price tags, and some are NOT willing to negotiate, they get offended by the mere notion that I recognize the same products from earlier shows. Ammo, accessories, firearms... i dont understand it.

The only Silverado show I attend now is the Frederick show...since it's just across town from my home. Yes...it's pretty much the same thing and same vendors wherever Silverado sets up. I don't blame it on Frank...the promotor. It started going downhill once formerly good vendors won't come into Maryland anymore as they don't care to separate out their inventory that's not Maryland compliant and certainly don't want to run afoul of Maryland law...even inadvertently. That would be bad for everyone and lead to news stories about gun dealers breaking the law and smearing everyone involved. Add to that some vendors who have retired or passed away and the shows get smaller.

The Frederick show used to be in three buildings and occasionally four at the Fairgrounds but no more.

When able, I go to the Frederick shows and Chantilly. I always stop at A1 Uniform at the Frederick show. They have one of the most extensive sets of modern firearms at the show and are smartly near the food concession area. If they have something that I want, I'd happily take a trip to their store having seen their operation and interacted with them at shows. Visibility probably grows their prospective customer base. South Carrol Sporting Goods, Accurate Pawn, and a few others also have good inventory. I usually also always buy 300 BLK ammo at TomKat. I typically enjoy perusing the decent quantity of old firearms that one finds at the Frederick show. Saw a sweet 1890 Winchester pump 22 at this last show that was tempting but just a bit more than I wanted to spend. Keep thinking about it though.
