The hardest part of selling a gun is determining its value. Firearms appraisal is a very exacting business that must be done by professionals. The Bluebook for guns provides prices for different degrees of gun condition, with specific definitions for the amount of wear that is permitted in each. Every little mark and scratch can detract from the value of the gun, and this is what has the biggest impact on the final price you get for the firearm.
There are also different standards for modern and antique guns, and whether you're selling a pistol or a rifle, Bluebook prices are very dependent upon the amount of original parts and finish that remain. Don’t make the mistake of trying to polish that old gun to make it look newer!
If you need help with gun appraisal, Bluebook value for insurance, or just some general advice, the firearms appraisal Experts on JustAnswer are the perfect resource, providing you with a fast and affordable estimation of the value of your gun. You can ask additional questions as well, and you’ll only approve payment once you’re fully satisfied.
