Selling a Smith & Wesson Revolver – A True Story

Smith & Wesson (S&W) has been producing guns since 1852 and has become an iconic symbol of American firearm history. Their 165+ year history of manufacturing firearms means there have been numerous models and variations, some quite valuable. One of their post popular and most valuable types of guns are their revolvers.

With such a rich history, it’s no surprise that older Smith & Wesson revolvers are quite popular. When appraising them, not only is the rarity of the piece taken into consideration, but the finish, functionality, overall condition, and comparative sales are considered. We try our best to estimate a guns current value and we base our offer off of that price. Because of the numerous models and variations the appraising process is sometimes complex, that’s why we ask for photos of your gun. The fair and honest gun appraisal specialists at Cash My Guns are dedicated to getting you a fair price, like our recent customer Jennifer M. from Everett, WA.

Jennifer held on to an inherited Smith & Wesson revolver for many years. With most inherited firearms, it is common for them to be passed down through generations, especially those of heirloom quality. To many families, a gun can tell a story of family history. Sometimes that family history and the “memories” have more personal value than monetary value. To others, a gun is just a potentially dangerous object to have in their home and there’s not much meaning or value to owning it. To our customer Jennifer, selling her S&W revolver was a way to provide for her family. Jennifer’s daughter was recently diagnosed with T1 Diabetes. To help with payments for treatment, Jennifer contacted Cash My Guns and was able to receive a free appraisal and buy-back price for her revolver. She made the decision to sell it to us and we made the transaction safe and easy for her. In the end, she received money for her revolver and she was pleased with the result!
