Zero Hour Arms in Easton
I know i've seen info for this place on here but don't see a review any where so I figured i'd add my own. I took a drive up there tonight with my friend who is into AK style rifles. Its a small store, easy to find, and stocked with some pretty exotic rifles for this area. Uzis, Desert Eagles, AR & AK types, Glocks (some looking brand spanking new) unfortunately too pricey for my wallet. Granted these are firearms you can't find everywhere and they're worth the price, just nothing I can really afford.
When my friend remarked about a "not safe to shoot" tag on an old Remington 03 Springfield, the store owner (can't remember his name but a cool guy to talk to) said it was because it was old and mentioned something about it being a boat paddle. [roll] A quick look and I saw it had a 44 barrel and looked like a CMP rifle with the typical Greek army blued refinish with dried cosmolene still on it here and there. He said he wasn't into them and was more interested in spray with machine guns. Perfect shooting buddy for my friend that I went there with who was drooling over the AKs. To each their own I guess, i'm still poor and can't afford full autos yet. [lol]
Still a nice shop with a good variety if you're looking for a higher end military rifle or pistol. There were a good number of old shotguns there too which looked a little outa place, and a few M1 Carbines that looked more in my price range.

As mentioned above, this is a great shop if you are looking for hard to find handguns in Mass, as well as a great spot for pre ban assault rifles. The guys are very friendly and helpful and prices are reasonable. They do gunsmith work as well.

How are they with the gun related stuff, cleaning supplies, scopes, holsters, ammo, magazines, etc. I want to go there but can't afford another gun right now. I'd make it over a lot sooner if I had a "reason" to go (But, honey I NEED some AMMO. )

Why, I've heard that they even have that hard to find Albanian .37 caliber blackpowder round with the Bakelite case ammunition.

Another plus for George, He fixed my 1911 in short order, saved me sending the gun back to S&W ( i need it for the USPSA shoot at AFS this Sunday)

There was some oddball ammo there. 50AE for example, probably because of the Desert Eagle in 50 that was for sale. It is a very small shop and while they do have some accessories theres not much at all. What you see shown on the web site is pretty much what you see there with the exception of some cleaning products and a few mags.
This is basically a gun shop if you have $1,000 burning a hole in your pocket and you want a pre ban AK, hard to find compact sized Glock, Desert Eagle, and a few other higher end assault style rifles.
Carl at FS has better Glock prices and while I was looking at a cabinet full of said Mass compliant Glocks at Zero Hour, I saw one with accesory rail and non typical pre ban serial number prefix. :?

George said he would remove the mini y comp on my Bushmaster and replace it with a muzzle break.

If Glock has to replace a defective frame, slide, or barrel the replacement has some strange S/N scheme. I found the info on this somewhere but don't recall where.
