Hello,
After my recent experience with a local NFA dealer, posted here Shakey's Gun Shop, Orwigsburg PA - BUYER BEWARE!, I'm looking for a new NFA dealer in PA. I'm on the eastern side of the state in the Lehigh Valley. I don't mind traveling an hour or two for a good NFA dealer. I posted in the Hometown section as well, but the silencer forum gets more traffic. If this post is out of place, please remove and I apologize. I'm just trying to get some options other than what I found doing a search and first hand experiences would be great!
Thanks for looking,
Drew

I used Schuylkill Gun Works when I got my Trident. Stony Creek Outfitters in Mount Penn/Reading (owner is Dragracer_Art here on ARFCOM) is also a class 3 dealer now. I'll be using them to purchase a Spectre next since they have an indoor pistol range and you can shoot a pistol suppressor there while the ATF processes the paperwork (just can't leave the building with it until the form is in).

I use Donley's in Quakertown.

Used them ever since Defcon-1 closed to public sales (oh, those were the days!)

I'll second Schuylkill Gun Works. Joe is a great guy, more than fair and his pricing is excellent. Nice on hand selection of suppressors and actually knows what he is talking about.

I haven't been to SCO yet. I met the owner Art about 8 or 9 years ago right here on ar15.com Super nice guy, did a private ftf deal or two that went perfect. Shared with me a secret shooting spot and took me to it my first time (it no longer exists ). Definitely a good guy to work with.

Either way you cant go wrong with the two guys listed above, both are class acts.

My friend and I both bought our Gemtech Outback II's from him a few years back. Everything went smooth and painless.

I have used Smith Specialty for my YHM .223 and was happy enough to use him for my Vector Uzi SBR that I'm waiting on.

Kings I was less than impressed with. She screwed up my paperwork, was supposed to order a LID for me so it was there when I picked up the can...guess she never did order it and I ended up ordering it direct. That was 1 1/2 years ago and I guess I'm still waiting for it to come in since they never bothered to call me back so I could cancel it.

Good luck with this one! Met them at a gun show, and was interested in some inventory. I got a business card, and called every 3-4 days for about 2 weeks, leaving a message about half the time...never once heard back. Since they are by appointment only, and wouldn't answer or return calls to set up an appointment, they lost my business.

Schuylkill Gun Works is the only place I go. Great selection and great prices.
