The Springfield Armory, Blank Firing Demonstrations

April 30 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm EDT

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 11:30 am on Saturday, repeating until May 7, 2022

One of the many highlights of working at Springfield Armory is our blank firing demonstrations! On these days, we dress up in period costume and take out some of our historic firearms and give a demonstration on how they are loaded and fired, along with some history behind each firearm.

From April through October blank firing demonstrations are held outside on our historic grounds on most Saturdays at 11:30am & 1:30pm, except on Special Event days and inclement weather. Please call ahead for monthly schedule. 413-734-8551.
