Our team at ProShots is passionate about firearms. We not only offer a great selection of firearm training programs and operate our own shooting range, but we also have an extensive collection of firearms for sale. In addition, if you are interested in selling your gun or want to know the value of your firearm, you can come to our store to have our experts provide an appraisal.
In this article, we’ll go over a few of the key characteristics we look at during all gun appraisals.
- Make and Model – Gun appraisals begin by checking the make and model of the firearm in question. This will tell us how old and how rare your gun is, both of which will impact its value.
- Condition of Exterior – The next step in our gun appraisal process is to examine the exterior of the firearm for signs of rust, wear, and other damage. Our experts know how to assess the extent of wear on firearms and will give your gun a fair NRA condition grading.
- Condition of Bore – Next, our team will look at the condition of the gun’s bore. We’ll look at how clean it is, and we’ll check for signs of corrosion. We’ll also check the level of wear—the less wear the firearm has, the more valuable it will be to potential buyers.
- Functionality – Proper gun appraisals will also test the functionality of the firearm. Our experts will test the action, trigger, and safety to make sure they work smoothly and correctly.
