Sell Your Colt Firearm or Get a
Cash Loan

The Colt name began in 1855, when Colt's Patent Firearms Manufacturing Company was first established. The name was later changed to Colt Manufacturing Company, LLC. Founded by Samuel Colt, this was not his first venture in the firearms industry. Young Colt had prior experience in the firearms industry, dating back to 1836.


Sam Colt and his firearms company were highly successful and influential between the 1850s and World War I. Although Colt didn't actually invent the revolver, his designs made them much more popular than they had been in the past. Prior to the revolver, earlier single-shot pistols were the standard. Later, Captain Samuel H. Walker met with Colt and helped him with a new concept based on the revolving cylinder Colt Paterson revolver, which was a five-shot pistol that was incredibly popular at the time. A sixth round was added, and the firearm was powerful enough to kill a man or horse.


Many changes occurred across the Colt Manufacturing name and its line-up of firearms over the years. Through it all, Colt was a popular name for firearm enthusiasts all over, from ruthless bandits to military personnel, and everyone in-between. Later, in 2002, the company actually split into two different divisions. Colt's Manufacturing Company continued servicing the civilian market. Colt Defense began servicing the U.S. government, military, law enforcement, and private security companies.


It's no secret that Colt has a long history over the years, and many firearms have been produced by this company in this time period. If you have a firearm from Colt's Patent Fire Arms Manufacturing Company or Colt Manufacturing Company, LLC, we would love to buy it from you. Visit Chesapeake Pawn and Gun in Chesapeake, Virginia today to get rid of an unwanted firearm and get paid top dollar for it.

How Can I Sell My Colt Firearm in Chesapeake?

Although you might have a strong appreciation for the Colt name, you might be thinking about selling your gun. You may just have more guns than you need, or you could be looking for a fast and easy way to get some cash. There are various ways you can sell your firearm, but out of all of your options, selling to Chesapeake Pawn and Gun makes the most sense.


Some people look for their own prospective buyers and make private sales when getting rid of a firearm, but there are liabilities and risks that go along with this type of private transaction. Plus, it might not be as easy to find a private individual to buy your gun as you think. Selling at a gun show where Virginia State Police are on-site to perform a universal background check is a little less risky, but there are still hassles, plus you have to wait until the next gun show. If you want to sell your gun fast while also avoiding any legal issues, selling to a pawn shop instead is your best bet.


Of course, there are a few pawn shops around the Hampton Roads area, and many of them are willing to purchase your firearm. You can visit another pawn shop to sell your gun, but not all pawn shops value firearms like we do. As a superior pawn shop and gun store, we know, appreciate, and pay great prices for pre-owned firearms. Virginia residents who want an easy, legal, and fast transaction -- all while getting paid more -- know that Chesapeake Pawn and Gun is the best place to sell a pre-owned gun. There's no reason to visit another pawn shop in the Chesapeake area. Choose us as your firearm experts, and you won't regret it.

You'll be given a cash offer on the spot, and if you accept, we'll hand over the cash right then. You'll be impressed by just how fast and easy it really is!


Selling to Chesapeake Pawn and Gun just makes sense. We're a well-known name in the Hampton Roads community as both a pawn shop and gun store. We do offer the basic services you'd expect from a pawn shop, but we actually specialize in firearms and ammunition. Because of this, we are a lot more familiar with the various makes and models of guns, allowing us to give you a more accurate valuation of your firearm. Also, since we keep 1000+ firearms in stock at all times, and because we want to have the inventory that our customers are looking for, we have a vested interest in buying your firearm. Other pawn shops that don't have as much of a focus on firearms may not be willing to make you a top dollar offer, but we are.


You can get paid what you deserve for your firearm in minutes, all while enjoying a safe, fast, and legal transaction. Also, we always pay in cash! We also accept trades. If you want to get rid of your Colt firearm because you have a different firearm in mind, chances are good that we have it in stock. We'll determine the value of your gun and give you a trade-in value toward your next firearm purchase, if you'd like. If the gun you want to trade for is actually worth less than the gun that you're trading in, don't worry! You can walk out with a new-to-you firearm and a little cash in your pocket, since we'll pay you in cash for the difference.


How Much Will I Get for My Colt Firearm?

If you have a Colt revolver, a long rifle, or a Colt pistol that you want to sell, getting paid as much for it as you can is probably your top priority. You can get an offer in no time if you bring your gun to Chesapeake Pawn and Gun.


Because Colt has been around for so long, there are a lot of old models out there. Some of the older firearms are incredibly rare nowadays, making them quite valuable. Of course, newer model Colt firearms that are in like-new condition are also quite valuable, too. Basically, we have to consider the resale value of your gun, since we will be reselling it in our gun shop. Then, we'll make you an offer based on that resale value. This is affected by the specific model that you have, its age, its condition, any accessories that you bring along with it, and more. We're more than happy to talk to you about our offer. Bring your gun to us so we can make you a cash offer today!

We Make Loans on Colt Firearms in Chesapeake

If you've never used your older or new guns to take out a pawn loan from Chesapeake Pawn and Gun, you've been missing out on a great financial product that can help you in a pinch. From long guns to revolvers, we accept all types of Colt firearms (as well as other brands) as collateral for our pawn loans.


Our pawn loans are a great choice because you can borrow a significant amount of money, based on the value of the gun (or guns!) that you bring in.
