    I have to come up with a value of my gun collection for insurance coverage. What is the best way to determine how much my guns are worth without taking all of them to get appraised? Is there a place that I can look online? Most are not in production any more so I can't even find new prices.

    Blue book will give you a calculated value, Gunbroker will tell you what people are actually bidding.

    Sometimes a Blue book value can be understated. Or overstated. I like to check the actual market.

    If you want to take the time you can go to gunbroker.com go into smart search bring up the completed auctions after listing each of your guns seperately. This will tell you what people are paying for the guns and not what someone thinks they are worth. Or go to the blue book and get the possibly higher amount.
