Similar to our identification services, we can also provide valuation appraisals for semi-autos that you may have in your possession.

It is becoming increasingly difficult for collectors to obtain bona fide appraisals on firearms for insurance companies. Our appraisal services also provide that solution. Your semi-autos are valuable not only to you, but to the world as part of history. Let us assist you in protecting your gun's value by providing a professional appraisal.

Without detailed photographs or a hands-on examination, we can only provide you a general feel for a pistol's value. To help us, be sure to include photographs or drawings of any marks you see on the pistol. The smallest proof mark can change the pistol's value considerably.

For an appraisal, send a request via Email to NAPCA at appraisals@napca.net.

Please include as much of the following information as you can:

  • Common Name (i.e. Luger, a Forty-Five, etc.)
  • Manufacturer (i.e. Mauser, Colt, etc.)
  • Year of Manufacture (i.e. 1940)
  • Caliber (i.e. 9mm, 7.62 x 25mm, etc.)
  • Country of Origin
  • Military vs. Commercial?
  • Photographs/Drawings of any/all markings

You will be contacted with an estimate for the cost of the appraisal and further instructions.


If physical examination becomes necessary for an appraisal, we will contact you to explain the federal and local legalities involved.
