We keep an active "Wish List" and will keep an eye out for any particular item you may be looking for- even if we find it offered by another seller! Since we will happily refer you to another reputable dealer should they be able to meet your needs, you need only contact us, instead of spending hours searching the web or subscribing to numerous dealer catalogs. Being collectors ourselves, we know what most antique weapons collectors are looking for and what prices are reasonable and fair. All our items come with a complete money back guarantee. If you are unhappy with any purchase, for any reason, just return it in the same condition as received within ten days of receipt for a full refund, less shipping charges.
We are constantly searching for good antique weapons
, so please keep us in mind if you have something to sell or trade. As collectors, we have found that one of the best ways to improve a collection is to periodically sell or trade certain items in order to acquire better pieces. You will be surprised at how quickly your collection improves when you begin doing this.
Another plus to collecting antique weapons is that historically they tend to substantially increase in value over time. This makes it a good investment and gives a little extra incentive when contemplating a large purchase. Unlike collecting fads like Beanies, etc., antique weapons have been highly collectible for centuries and only major economic downturns have much negative impact on prices. You also can't get the same kind of enjoyment from hanging a stock certificate on the wall that you get while showing off the prize pieces in your collection. So whether you collect merely for fun or view it also as an investment, please come to antiqueweaponstore.com when thinking about adding to or starting your collection!
