Recently, I went to a buddies house to welcome him home from deployment. While I was there, he showed me some new additions to his house that had been done in his absence. However, we also took a peek at his gun collection (and his safe) just for giggles. His grandfather had handed him down some shotguns and other firearms and it got me thinking about whether guns depreciate in value, and what factors impact prices.
The 1911 model chambered for .45 ACP is one of the most popular and well known models of handguns. This sidearm was adopted by the military in, you guessed it, 1911. Over the years, the pistol has gained popularity among the civilian population.
