Default M&J Gun Trade

I went to M&J Gun trade for the first time today. For those of you who don't know they are located at 2330 J Street Sacramento, CA. I had never visited before today.

I had a buddy who wanted to look at 1911's and my usual go to store, River City Gun Exchange was closed so I figured I would finally take a look at M&J.

First impression is that the store is small so it's not a very large inventory and most of the firearms were used. I don't have a problem with used guns, I actually prefer that they are already broke in.What they lacked in inventory that made up for in service. I think just about everyone that worked there asked me at different times if they could help me or if I wanted to see a gun. I took a look at a few, asked a few questions and than bought some Glock mags before leaving.

They offer layaway. Other than RCGE I think they are the only ones in the valley that offer it.

Anyway if you have not been there you should drop by and take a look.

We go there first every small biz saturday. One of the best old school small shops around the Metro Sac area. Service and friendliness is number one at M&J gun and trade.

I've never bought anything there and I've never had a bad experience there but I've never been impressed with anything there enough to buy it.

Not to mention the Calguns.net sticker when you walk in. Both New and plenty of older stuff at M&J. Was looking at an old .mil revolver in 38 s&w. Interesting revolver but not cheap. They carry both AK and AR new in a few brands from Sub $500 to pricey. Just a Fun shop to visit. Had a bunch of 9x18 makarov ammo in stock. Stop by the little pub/restaurant next door for breakfast or lunch not bad and plenty of food on your plate. You don't leave hungry.

I didn't notice the sticker but while talking to the guys there they asked how I heard about them and told them it was through Calguns. The immediate follow up question I got was "Was what you read good?". I laughed a little and told him it was indeed only good things.

Would be nice to see them with a vendor account. Not the biggest shop but one of the funnest. We went to the new bass pro shop sunday and we prefer the M&J size shops. My wife bought her first two firearms from m&j just on the sales and service. I would rather pay a little more and support our local small shops.

I've bought & sold with them before and they're very friendly. I try to visit every couple of months to see what they got.

Always see their ad but haven't been able to stop by yet (don't like to venture into downtown too often :P). I've heard many positive things from other people about them though.

They are top-notch. Did a PPT there when they first opened a while back. I just wish they had more inventory/variety (I know, hard to compare against a shop like RCGE)

So did anyone have an experience with M&J? I always see their ads for (cheaper) Glocks, but when I read their Yelp reviews, I read that they change up the price at the last minute. Does anyone have any similar stories? Otherwise, I'm going to go check it out.

I have been trying to convince the owners to stop selling those. I don't think anyone has ever actually bought a single one, because whenever I've been in there there are no fewer of them.

They flood armslist with the same stuff EVERYDAY! But I did find a S&W Bodyguard that was as new as a used gun can be for 439. So I'll put up with their flooding of armslist, and the the transaction was smooth and friendly employees. Parking is non existent tho down there.

You can use the checkboxes on the left side of the screen on Armslist to filter out dealers' posts.

Not the biggest selection, but it's nice to see an actual gun store on the grid downtown.

I've done a few PPT and bought a few from them. While they are small and have limited inventory, their customer service is excellent. I have no hesitation to return there.

I stopped by and they had 9x18 Makarov in stock , hollow point , Russian mfg $19.99 a box for 50 rds

very few LGS carry 9x18mm makarov ammo

it's also coin & jewelry store

not much to look at but they do have some interesting firearms, I saw a nice looking KRAG carbine recently.
