The New England Antique Arms Society, Inc. was founded by a group of serious antique arms collectors and historians in 1997. Since then, our membership has grown to over 200 members from across the United States and Canada.
Our members include prominent historians, artists, museum professionals, educators, antique arms dealers and collectors.
We are a non-profit corporation, incorporated under the laws of the State of Connecticut.

The New England Antique Arms Society is known as the only true historical “Gem of a Show” in New England!

The signature event for the New England Antique Arms Society was previously known as the Hartford Show. We have moved a half-hour north up route 84 into Massachusetts, onto Route 20 West. The show has provided the highest quality antiques, militaria, early documents, historical items, and more and more in New England for more than 25 years and has grown to be one of the finest in the country.
Every year, the show features outstanding displays of antique and historical arms and related items from the American colonial period through World War II, as well as hundreds of tables of similar items offered for sale by reputable dealers and collectors.
The Society encourages collectors, dealers, and families to come out and spend a day immersing yourselves in history, seeing real items that made that history. From Colonial times and the Revolutionary War Era, through the War of 1812 and the Mexican War periods, the Civil War, America’s westward expansion, the Indian Wars, and up to World War I and World War II, it’s all here.
Unlike museums, you can find that piece of history to own, so come out for a rewarding and interesting day of history.
