How Much Will You Get for Your Gun?

If you’re thinking about selling your firearm, you could be curious about how much you’ll be paid for it. Although you can do some of your own research about a fair price that gun buyers will pay for your gun, you should know this is on a case-by-case basis. The best way to get an accurate offer for your firearm is to bring it in for us to take a look at it. We can perform our own assessments on the spot when you bring your gun in. If you’re curious, though, these are some of the things that will impact the value of your firearm:

  • Gun manufacturer (Sig Sauer, Smith & Wesson, etc.)

  • Condition of your firearm

  • History of your firearm (for example, is it a historical piece?)

  • Modifications that have been done to the gun

Why Sell Your Gun to Chesapeake Pawn and Gun?

You might have already made the decision to sell your gun, but you could be thinking about selling it to an individual or taking it to a gun show. Even though you have a variety of options for selling your firearm, you’ll probably find that selling to Chesapeake Pawn and Gun is your best bet for all of these reasons:

  • Sell your gun quickly and easily. You don’t have to wait to find a buyer. Instead, you can bring your gun in today and walk out with cash in minutes. You don’t have to worry about advertising your gun, chatting with people who might never show up to look for it, negotiating with someone who isn’t serious about paying you what you’re owed, or any other hassles. Instead, you can get everything taken care of in no time, all with the help of friendly and experienced professionals.

  • We’re always looking to buy firearms. Whether you’re looking to sell a single firearm or several, we are the local gun shop for you to visit. We’ll buy one firearm or your entire collection.

  • Get paid what you deserve. No matter why you might be thinking about selling your firearm, you’re probably hoping to get a fair price for it. You don’t have to worry about being lowballed or talked down on the price of your valuable gun. Because we have been in the firearms industry for years and know about all different types of firearms, we offer top dollar, based on the condition and value of your firearm.

  • Avoid legal issues. There are a lot of legalities that you have to worry about when selling a gun, but you don’t have to worry about these issues when you sell to a licensed FFL dealer. At Chesapeake Pawn and Gun, we are aware of all federal gun regulations and will follow them closely when buying your gun. Then, you don’t have to worry about the legal troubles that can sometimes go along with selling a firearm.

  • Get cash without giving up your gun forever. You don’t actually have to sell your gun to get cash when you come to Chesapeake Pawn and Gun. Because we offer pawn loans on all items of value -- including new guns, used guns, long guns, assault weapons, and more -- you can use your gun as collateral for a loan, and you can get your firearm back when you repay the loan.

  • Use the funds from your firearm sale in the way that works best for you. When you sell a gun to us, you can opt to either receive cash or store credit. If you choose store credit, you can put the credit toward purchasing a different firearm that is more suitable for you and your needs, or you can even put the credit toward another purchase. For example, if you’re looking to buy an engagement ring for your love or a nice luxury watch for yourself, you can use your store credit to buy what you want or need.


Why Take Out a Pawn Loan on Your Gun?

You might be looking into selling your gun because you’re short on cash, but you might not actually be too happy about getting rid of your firearm forever. Luckily, we’re here to help you out of your tight spot! People take out pawn loans for many reasons, including:

  • You don’t have to give up your firearm (or other item of value) forever! Instead, just leave it with us until you’re ready to repay your loan, then pick it up in the same condition that you left it in.

  • You can use one or multiple firearms as collateral, depending on how much your guns are worth and how much you’re hoping to borrow.

  • You can combine firearms and other items of value as your collateral. For example, you can use both your gun and your luxury watch or fine piece of jewelry as collateral.

  • There is no credit check, employment check, or income check.

  • You can get your loan money in cash the same day, with no waiting periods and no need to have a bank account.

  • If you don’t repay your loan, you don’t have to worry about a hit on your credit score. We’ll just keep your collateral, but there will be no further repercussions for you. In fact, you’ll be able to return and take out yet another pawn loan from us without any problems, even if you’ve defaulted on a loan in the past.


You can use many different items as collateral to take out one of our pawn loans, but many people prefer to use their firearms in particular for a few reasons:

  • Since you will need to leave your collateral with us until you repay your loan, you’ll want to use an item that you won’t miss in the meantime. If you only take your gun to the firing range every now and then, it might be a better choice than a wedding ring that you wear constantly or a laptop that you use every day.

  • Firearms often hold their value very well. Since your loan amount will be based on the value of the collateral that you bring in, bringing in your most valuable items can help you increase your borrowing power. We understand the true value of your gun and will make you a loan offer accordingly.

  • You may have multiple firearms in your personal collection, and you can bring some or all of them to use as collateral.


Chesapeake Pawn & Gun for a Firearm Loan?

Many pawn shops will accept firearms as collateral for their pawn loans, but Chesapeake Pawn & Gun should always be your first choice. Because we work with guns on a constant basis, we are better aware of the true value of your firearm. This means we will give you a higher loan offer for your gun.

What to Bring When Getting a Pawn Loan for Your Firearm

If you’ve decided you want to use your gun as collateral to take out a pawn loan, you probably want to be sure the process is as smooth and painless as possible! To do this, go ahead and bring your firearm with you when you’re ready to take out a loan. After all, we won’t be able to give you an accurate loan offer -- nor will we be able to hand over your cash -- until you bring your collateral in.


Also, make sure you bring in your driver’s license or other government-issued ID. We are required by state law to see your ID and document your basic information when granting a pawn loan.

Tips for Taking Out a Loan on Your Gun

Taking out a pawn loan on your gun is easy. Make sure you bring your gun and your ID, and you shouldn’t have any problems. Also, remember to bring along any documentation that you might have related to your gun, such as if you have proof that it’s a historical piece. This can help you get a higher loan amount. Don’t forget that you can bring along other items of value to help you borrow the amount that you want! For example, you can bring in both your firearm and your luxury watch at once, and we’ll value your collateral together when making you a loan offer!


We try to make things as transparent and simple as possible when you’re borrowing money from us, but you should still take the time to look over your pawn ticket. Then, you’ll know exactly how much you will be expected to pay back and when your loan is due. Hold on to your pawn ticket to expedite things when you’re ready to repay your loan, and if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask!
