We have been serving Maine since 1997.
Historical & antique firearms - Colt - Winchester - Marlin - Smith & Wesson - WWI & WWII firearms and collectibles
Located only a few miles from Bangor and Brewer area. We are located in Hermon, Maine on the Bog Road. Only 3 miles from Bangor. 9 tenths miles off US Route 2.
We will buy one gun or a whole estate collection. 1 or 300 we will buy them all. Whether you want to thin out what you have, need money to pay bills, or a relative passed away and you are over whelmed let Fred help you. He will help you in any way he can to make the process go smoothly. He has more knowledge than just firearms (antiques, military items, tools, signage, fishing & hunting items, old toys, vintage snowmobiles, and more) so he might be able to help you with the value of other items as well even though he may not want to purchase them. See some of the items he collects on Instagram or Pintrest. He cares about preserving history and shares his collection with others by posting pictures of the items online and displaying items in his gun shop.
Avoid pawn shops, cash shops, or buyers of gold & guns that will offer you very little for your items. Beware of those that offer you cash for your collection but do not give you the actual retail value of each firearm up front. They could be ripping you off. They should show you a current values book and show you current ended online auctions. I know what other shops have offered customers for guns. Beware of selling a firearms collection to private individuals without researching what you have first. I have many customers come in and sell guns to me that bought them from a widow or someone that needed to sell their collection due to health or financial reasons. They will come here and get 300 dollars for something they paid 100 for. I see this all the time. I am not saying all people are like that but if you don't know what you have go to someone that does and you know you can trust. There are no employees to deal with that only are allowed to give you 50% of the value of your firearm. You only deal with the owner Fred with 25yrs of experience and no one else.
Auction houses can charge 15% - 25% in sellers fees and 15% or higher in buyers fees. Always consider this when taking something to auction. As a seller you need to consider this. Buyers may not bid as high knowing there are fees involved. Some items never go for the expected selling price. It depends on if two or more people want the same item and bid against each other or not. There maybe another item that is just like yours but in better condition you will get less bids. Fred will take this risk when he purchases items. Sometimes he has to list items several times in auctions before he sells the item for the price he wants.
Fred will research what you have by using a library of books, online searches, current prices guides and recent ended online auctions. The market is always changing and sometimes even the current blue books are low and sometimes they are high. Fred is also a collector as well so he knows what his customers will pay for firearms. If he doesn't know what he is looking at he will research the firearm and contact other experts to help. Fred will give you a fair and honest price. Large shops will not give you a fair price for your items. Large shops need big profits so they will not give you as much for your firearms. Since we have low overhead we work off lower profit margins so we will give you more for your firearms.
TRADING IN A FIREARM? Please note when considering trading in a firearm we do not take in every firearm that walks in th door. It depends on what we have in stock, if it is a hard to sell model, a firearm that is known to have problems or a recall, the time of year, and the condition of the firearm. Firearms that we are highly likely to take in are old, antique, vintage, or military firearms. Older lever action rifles. Older Colt, Ruger or Smith revolvers. Pre 64 firearms. We do take newer production firearms but it depends on what you have. WE DO NOT BUY ***No modern muzzleloaders, reproduction firearms, sporterized firearms, firearms with upgraded or modified triggers, AR15's or AR10's that are not factory made (No individually made, locally or non locally made custom AR's), handguns with stippled or modified frames, firearms with non factory Cerakoted or Duracoated finish, Jennings firearms, Bryco firearms, Kimber firearms, Benelli firearms, Stoeger firearms, reloaded ammunition, used optics or bows please*** (We only make exceptions when buying estate collections) When dealing with buying estate collections we will buy them all.

Business Hours: MONDAY: NOON - 5:30pm TUESDAY - FRIDAY: 9:00am - 5:30pm SATURDAY: 8:00am - 2:00pm SUNDAY: RANDOM SEE Facebook, Twitter, the hours page on this website, or Google.
Appointment may be necessary depending on the amount of firearms you have. I am available to look at large collections before or after hours Monday-Saturday or on a Sunday.
I can come to you if you seriously want to sell your large collection. I will travel within Maine to look at your collection. Because I have a family it can be difficult for me to travel while school is in session during the week. My children go to a private Christian school with no buses. Your information will be kept private and confidential. We do not offer appraisals, trade value, or estimates of purchase price via email, Facebook, or phone. It is impossible to put a value on anything without seeing the item. If you want me to come to you or you are coming here and you have a large collection I would recommend sending a list via email of what you have prior to our appointment. This will shorten the time of my research of firearms I may need to study market value on.
We do not offer appraisals, trade value, or estimates of purchase price via email, Facebook, or phone. Beware of those that will. Sometimes they tell you a higher number just to get you in the door then they tell you it is not what they thought or the condition isn't as good as you described and offer you a much lower value.

Did you know modifying a firearm by stippling, hydro dipping, or cerakoting ruins the resale of a firearm? You have modified a firearm to something you like and now that is customized you have to find the right person that wants a firearm that is on that configuration. Every guns value book gives the value of firearms in factory configuration. Anything that has been modified the price instantly goes down. Why buy a firearm for $500.00 and put another 100 or 200 dollars in it only to loose the money of the addition mods and degrade the value of the firearm as well. If it is something you are going to keep for ever that is one thing but many people do not. Instead of stippling why not use Talon grips or other grip tape. It is easily removable and does not take away from the value.
We require a valid Maine drivers license or state id with your current physical address on it if you sell a firearm to us.
