Estate & Appraisal Services
Our industry seems to have always had need of Appraisal Services offered by knowledgeable members of the shooting sports fraternity, and for that reason we will continue to provide that service. Since this service has been an active part of our business for the past 48 years we have learned that not everyone needs a full-blown "appraisal". For those persons we offer a simple "evaluation" service. For a fee of $20.00 we will provide an overview of the item without going to the trouble of a market search, auction review, etc. This should satisfy the casual curiosity as to what you have and where it originated. All this can be accomplished by e-mail, and maybe, a phone call.
However, if the needs are more along the serious lines then we offer a full "appraisal" for either current market value or insurance replacement value. This would require, at a minimum, good photos of the item as well as any accompanying provenance. This service bills at $50.00 - $100.00 per hour depending on the need for travel and outside research. Please look over our form and fill in as much information as you feel qualified to give. Provide a phone number and best time to call in case we have questions. For convenience you may use your Master card or Visa card as payment. Should you care to discuss this first just e-mail us your telephone number and when to call.
Some of you maybe interested in selling your item or items. Should that be the case, we buy, trade, and consign items or estates as a regular part of our business. Just let us know how we can serve you. We look forward to hearing from you.
Our estate and appraisal services include antique firearms, guns, knives, military memorabilia, vintage guitars, western art, western paintings, traditional archery, musical instruments and Americana.
