The majority of estate sale companies do not deal in firearms or ammunition. I have a Federal Firearms License (FFL) which allows me to legally purchase firearms from estates and individuals throughout the country. I buy your firearms and do all of the proper paperwork for your peace of mind.
I am interested in buying your military antiques and firearms before you have an estate sale. I work with trusted estate sale companies and can refer you to them for the rest of your estate. Read our testimonials tab above.
I have dealt with many families that turned in thousands of dollars in old firearms because they did not know any better. In one instance, a family turned in a $5,000 pistol that was manufactured in 1908 to be melted down. The pistol was a scarce military firearm that is highly collectible.
In another instance, a widow turned over an entire safe full of her husband's old guns because she just wanted them out of the house. Her husband was a responsible gun owner and she could have made thousands of dollars from the collectors who would have bought them. They would have been transferred to my record books and the new owners would have gone through the required State Police background checks to transfer the firearms into their name. The state police would have reviewed the transfer and they would no longer be registered to the estate but to the new owner.
Old firearms that veterans brought back from war or that current retirees collected in the 1960s through 1980s are a valuable part of history appreciated by collectors. The same is true for ammunition. Old guns sometimes use hard to find ammunition that has value. One lady showed me two crates of very old ammunition that she was going to turn in and I paid her several hundred dollars for them. I sold them to collectors who needed the odd calibers.
