BMG Guns & Ammo
2543 Berlin Turnpike
Newington, CT 06111
Tuesday & Wednesday: closed
The third gun store in Newington is also on the Berlin Turnpike, up the road a ways from Hoffman’s. If you miss the self-propelled howitzer guarding the entrance to the parking lot, the big signs should still catch your eye:
While they had a wide variety of guns in stock, BMG appears to specialize in 2 types of guns: surplus and class-3. For surplus long guns, they had racks along the walls of the store with M1 rifles, SKSs, short and long versions of Mosin-Nagants, a Mannlicher-Carcano carbine, and some 7.62 and 5.45 AKs. There were also 15 sporting shotguns and a box-fed 12-ga Saiga:
Behind the counter, they had a wall of long guns featuring Ar15s in assorted calibers/configurations, bolt-action and lever-action hunting rifles, pistol-caliber carbines (including Hi-Point and Kel-Tec), some AK pattern rifles, some Springfield M1As, and what appeared to be a HK91. And a PS90, in case you have to put down a pack of chihuahuas:
There are handguns in the display cases. Glock, Ruger, Smith & Wesson, Hi-Point, some derringers in case you need to refresh your appreciation for airweight revolvers, one of the new Liberator pistol replicas, a FiveseveN in case your PS90 runs dry in mid-chihuahua-assault:
And then we come to the real deal: class-3. They have a wall of your typical full-auto fun, M16s, Tommyguns, Mac-10 and Mac-11, Uzis, an original folding-stock AR180, a supressed Kel-Tec Su16, an M1919 belt-fed (rechambered in 8mm Mauser), folding-stock AKs and short-barrelled shotguns:
They also had a night-sighted M1 carbine:
And some other very interesting vintage items. A brass gatling gun, a PPSh41, a SVT40, a StG44 replica, a PSL (AK-based sniper rifle):
They had crates of surplus ammo available (including some Egyptian 9mm with a warning not to use it in handguns). Limited selection of accessories.
The help was very friendly and approachable. If your interests run towards surplus and class-3 toys, you should check out BMG.
