San Diego Firearm Appraisals


WBT offers written firearm appraisals of all firearm types in San Diego. Appraisals can be requested for a variety of reasons including:

  • large collection liquidations
  • estates
  • probate/wills
  • divorce
  • insurance
  • bankruptcy
  • consignments
  • pending sales 
  • general curiosity

With over a decade and tens of thousands of guns sold, WBT has real experience and knowledge of the firearms market, especially within California. Further, California firearms laws are complex and always changing. WBT is the absolute statewide leader in California Compliance experience. Many appraisers are not engaged in retail firearms sales which limits their ability to give an accurate appraisal and advice. With WBT as one of the state wide firearms retail leaders, we are not limited in experience or knowledge of this unique market.

Full documentation of each firearm on our company form including:

  • Importer/Make/Model/Caliber

Appraisal Costs:

During our initial phone call or visit(free of charge) we take the time to get your questions answered and consult with you or your representative so you feel comfortable with our process. Once we are all on the same page, we will schedule your appraisal.  

We charge $100 per scheduled appraisal appointment and $30 per firearm. 

Normally we request the firearms are brought to our store in La Mesa, however for large estates we can travel to your home or other storage location. There may be an additional fee for this service. Please use the form below to contact us to get more information or schedule your appraisal.
