Elephant & Castle’s expertise in buying, selling and evaluating firearms, is the reason why we are the premier firearms appraiser in the Midwest area.

We have an extensive firearm library, research materials and over 50 years combined personal knowledge that allows us to thoroughly and accurately determine the value of your particular firearm, or collection of firearms. Appraisals are necessary for estate purposes, insurance, or if you just want to know what that old gun is worth.

Having your firearms appraised is easy. Call us and schedule an appointment to have your firearms evaluated. Pricing is determined by what type or how many firearms are appraised and whether you need a written or verbal appraisal. Sometimes extensive research is needed to properly estimate your firearms value and subsequently the appraisal fee will increase.

If you decide to sell your firearm or firearms to Elephant & Castle, then we will credit your appraisal fee.
