    Great customer service both over the phone and in person. This is my 1st experience with AHW and I must say... so far so good. I haven't given them 5 stars (yet) based on the fact that I just took my firearm to get a new trigger put in and new sights added. As soon as I receive it back I will update with service and prices shortly as well as a new star rating

    Update: I dropped off my handgun to get an upgraded trigger and new sights put on. I spoke with Miles (hope I spelled that correctly) and was informed that he should have it ready in 24 hours (my firearm was ready in less than 24 hours). Me being a "newbie" I had several questions and Miles was very patient and knowledgeable. He never tried to sell me anything, Miles just gave great advice and suggestions. The service was great, the trigger was amazing (felt better than my friend's who has the same) and the sights spot on as I wanted. Very professional quality of work. The prices were the best I could find in my area as well as online. Honestly, for the quality of work that was done I wouldn't have minded a paying a little more. Glad to see there is still places like this out there. AHW is family run with a passion and enjoyment for what they do. Highly recommended.

    A family run business, with all staff knowledgable and very polite. Very competitive prices and excellent gunsmithing. 7/19

    All I can say is that I could not have asked for a better experience. My brother and I went for a private class. Janice was friendly, super detailed and extremely knowledgable. But she kept it interesting and relaxed. If you are a total newbie like me, this is the place. I'm even recommending my sister and wife take her course.

    Excellent service , good selection and exceptional craftsmanship. Rates are very fair and a knowledgeable staff. Highly recommended.

    Awesome Service! Took my Colt 1991 for repairs and service and I was amazed when I picked it up it looked brand new! I'm taking all my other Rifles for cleaning!

    New in the area. Saw this place leaving Publix. So glad that I found it. it truly still has that family business feel. Very personalized customer service. They really try to make the customer happy. I found my goto gun shop and gun smith.

    Excellent service and total professionalism. I highly recommend AHW to the "Newbie" or experienced gun owner !

    This family owned and run Firearm establishment is the ultimate example of what the American Dream is truly about. With a Knowledgeable and superior Gunsmith, Instructor and a wealth of knowledge as it relates to firearm choice, usage, safety and the law which encompasses all Therein, firmly understood by the family and staff, I was truly at home as a self defense and gun aficionado.

    Their creed of superior and personalized service truly set them apart from the more traditional and larger gun stores in Florida.

    I was particularly impressed with My CWP Instructor and Matriarch of this fine establishment, Mrs. Janice Matos, who made sure that my “Rectification” as my CWP had expired was truly an updated experience. In other words, regardless of my previous experiences and knowledge of the law and gun ownership, she ensured that I was privy, versed and fully understood any new nuances and circumstances under the law. I was blown away as to how much I had forgotten in every regard. Thank you so much for this experience.

    Excellent service and professionals all the way. Ralph and Janice are consummate professionals that have an eye for detail and ate fair.

    Great gunsmith 2nd time using them. They blued my barrels ,mounted scope, threaded barrel for suppressor and adjusted my trigger for a smooth and easy squeeze. Quick turn around time with quality work.
    I highly recommend .

  • *****

    Definitely a good place to purchase firearms. The store is very well organized and very clean unlike some other gun shops. The staff is very nice and highly educated on all types of guns.

  • *****

    AHW is amazing! For 15 years and 3 different gunsmiths in 3 different states I have been trying to fix an ejector blade on a Winchester trapper lever action mod94 cal.357 and nobody could find or make the part.
    I was reluctant to see if AHW could do it but Miles did it in a week!
    Thank you!

    Amazing customer service!

  • *****

    Excellent service. This is a family run shop and all members of the family are knowledgeable, friendly and professional.

    I enjoyed my experience with them... I needed a new barrel installed on my S&W MP15, and went in on a Sunday to see about getting it done. I was pleasantly surprised when I was called 2 hours later to let me know my gun was ready for pickup. I was very happy to have time to head to the range and try out my new barrel!

    Thanks to American Handheld Weaponry for an excellent experience! I've found my new gunsmith!

  • *****

    Phenomenal! Excellent Customer Service! It's how it should be!! I didn't know much but Myles took the time to answer all my questions and explain everything to me. The whole staff made me feel very comfortable; like I've known them for years!! I'm signed up for one of the Pistol Safety Classes and I'm so excited. Thank you for your patience, Myles! It meant a great deal to me.

  • *****

    These guys are the best. Outstanding customer service from people who care. Look forward to doing business again soon. Give them a try and you won't be disappointed. Good luck at the new location.

    Out of all the custom riffles i own, this is the best custom riffle i have had made. Great customer service, wonderful owners Rafael and Janice Matos, what a great experience. They spent time helping me customizing my riffle exactly the way i wanted it. My wife got her conceal weapons license with them and they serviced all my firearms. I highly recommend AHW your one stop shop for all you firearms needs and Wow!!! Great prices...I agree with their slogan, YOU COME IN AS A CUSTOMER AND YOU LEAVE AS A FRIEND!!!

  • *****

    My experience at American Handheld Weaponry was above and beyond exceptional! I found the service to be above reproach. There was no pressure to buy, just a genuine desire to help me find what was suitable for my needs. The atmosphere was both friendly and professional and I thoroughly enjoyed my buying experience..

  • *****

    The atmosphere is amazing can't ask a dumb? Very knowledgeable and hands on to me this is home #Amp1hunnit

  • *****

    Extremely nice and knowledgeable. No matter if it's your first gun or your 100th, they will treat you like family. That is extremely hard to find in south Florida. I will definitely be back!

    I took in my m16 comando 11.5" barreled upper to Rafael with cycling issues. Weapon running slow/ sluggish. I'm thinking this is going to furt.
    Rafael took one at the bolt and immediately notice the gas key was a little loose. He tightening the screws and re-staked them. He said, " You are done " Told me to take it to the range and to call him later with an update. Well, I couldn't get to the range fast enough to see if it was true. I dumped 4 mags through it in full auto. Ran like a champ, freaken awesome !!
    Oh, the total cost for the repair, ZERO ! He said to just to write a review about my experience at American Handhelp Weaponry .

    Rafael,
    You are a good guy and your my gunsmith from now on !! I'm sure I will call on you again real soon for other stuff like parts, accessories and guns, of course.
    Thank you for being honest
    Sincerely,
    Rey Marquez

    I have had guns around me all my life and there isnt a gun store i would go back to or a gun show i would purchase from after meeting Janice and Ralph. Not only do they treat you with respect but they treat you like family. They answered all my questions and took the time to make sure i was getting exactly what i wanted for my custom AR build. I couldnt be happier. Big box stores could learn a lot from there level of customer service.

  • *****

    Just wanted to give a special thanks to both Janice and Ralph .. 2 amazing people that really know their stuff and can help you with all your gun needs .. I highly recommend AHW

  • *****

    I had a great first visit yesterday. I met Janice who was very welcoming. Their prices are competitive so I'll definitely visit again to purchase.

  • *****

    The people were great. What I like the most it's family atmosphere. Very friendly all questions answered quickly and appropriately.

  • *****

    I wanted to thank AHW for the outstanding customer service displayed as I purchased my first Glock! Janice was very helpful in helping me select what I was looking for. Her professionalism and knowledge about weapons was amazing and she made sure I knew everything about the gun before I purchased it. I highly recommend American Handheld Weaponry and will definitely go back for my next purchase!! Thank you!!

  • *****

    The customer service is second to none. Outstanding knowledgeable sales professionals. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants satisfaction with their weaponry purchase experience.

  • *****

    What a great experience buying my first 9MM Shield. Janice and her husband made me feel like i was at home the whole time i was there. For those who want the the family experience in buying your weapon AHW is the place to go.

  • *****

    Hands down best firearm purchase experience i have ever had. I will be back again for my next AR custom build. I highly recommend if your thinking of purchasing a weapon you come and talk to Ralph or Janice. Make sure you tell them your purpose so they can direct you to what best suits your use.

  • *****

    The staff was extremely helpful and very knowledgeable. Catered to all my specific needs. I highly recommend you visit them for all you're firearm needs. I took the concealed weapons class the instructor was excellent.

    I had been hesitant about being a gun owner for a while. When I decided to do so, I asked a friend for some reference to make my purchase. It was then when he referred me to American Handheld Weaponry to see Janice and Ralph. After a 44-mile drive, I arrived to the store and they took care of me. Not only did they showed me which gun was best for me to start with, but also they gave me confidence and taught me how to handle one. At first, I bought a Walther CCP; a couple of weeks later, when I had already taken my firearms course, I came in for my second gun: a Glock 43 4Gen. They ordered right away and I took my husband with me who then got a Beretta Storm. On their first giveaway, I won a Glock 19 that I'm in love with and today I'm owner of my second Glock 43.
    As you can see, I always go to the same place and drive 88 miles round trip. The difference is that now I'm not hesitant, because they have become family. Their knowledge, inventory, prices and exceptional customer service make you want to go see them every day.
    So, whenever you want to purchase ANY weapon, and be certain you're making the correct decision, I recommend American Handheld Weaponry 200%. Who knows... you might see me there.. :)

    Great people , great service! Couldn't be happier with them! My gunsmith of choice! They definitely take time to listen to what you have to say. Ive recommended all my shooting buddies to them. This is the way a gun store should be. All time. Plus the prices can't be beat. Solid work guys.

  • *****

    I'm not normally the type to leave a review.... mostly because I was taught to only speak if I had something nice to say. I came to AHW based on the recommendation of a friend and was immediately transformed from new patron skeptic to a dedicated customer. Janice and Rafael are an awesome duo. Knowledgeable, friendly, and priced reasonably on inventory. I came in for some gunsmith work and was very pleased with the quality and finish of the work I received. I'm a mechanic by trade and have a high standard of work quality and craftsmanship. Rafael didn't disappoint. With work quality and turn around as I've experienced it, I would gladly go back for even double the charge. I look forward to continuing to frequent this awesome establishment for my gun needs and hopefully to take part in their awesome monthly raffles.

    The coolest firearms at the best prices. The owners are very friendly, knowledgeable and can fix issues with your firearm. Definitely recommending them to my friends and family.

    Strangely, I'm not a person who writes reviews, however, I will read reviews for just about everything possible.

    I recently won a raffle held by American Handheld Weaponry, to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project. The prize was a Taurus Millennium G2, and unexpectedly a range bag with an assortment of accessories and ammo. Totally excited and I say that because I'm not one to ever have this type of luck.

    Upon visiting American Handheld Weaponry, I was totally impressed by the arrangement and variety of weapons in inventory. If you're into concealment and personal defense, you must pay them a visit. I will be returning with the wife to choose a suitable personal defense weapon as well as signing her up for a concealed weapons course.

    Bought my first firearm here and wouldn't think about going anywhere else! Great prices and great people/owners!
