G/K43 Insurance and Asset Appraisal Service

By W. Darrin Weaver, author of "Hitler's Garands: German Self-Loading Rifles of WW II"

Need an appraisal to document the value of your high-dollar G43, K43 or ZF4 Sniper Rig?

It's a well known fact that insurance companies frequently under-value firearms when adjusting claims. Many adjustors are simply ignorant of the collectible firearms market and assume that one rifle is about the same as another. This misconception can be thwarted with a written appraisal. German WW2 Gewehr and Karabiner 43s and their scopes and mounts can frequently command four figures or more in todays market. You may have purchased it in 1970 for $65, but what is it worth in todays market? And furthermore, what would it cost today to replace it if it were damaged in a house fire, stolen or lost?

For a nominal fee, you can obtain a written appraisal of the value of your G/K43 collection, to include scopes, mounts and accessories. The information you provide will be personally reviewed by the author, and an appraisal will be written and signed by the author and forwarded to you. The appraisal may be used for any number of reasons: insurance adjustments, wills, or simply to obtain some idea of a firearms value prior to selling on the current market.

An example of a written appraisal of your G41, G43, K43 + scopes and mounts that can individually written for you for safe keeping and piece of mind.
