A collectable firearm may never be fired. You’ll lose 20% of its value!— Carvel Webb, SAAACA
SAAACA is based at the so-called “War Museum” in Saxonwold, Johannesburg.
The collection of firearms as investment dates back to, at least, the reign of France’s Louis XIII (1610 – 1643), according to Webb.
Webb claims investors can expect the value of a quality firearm to appreciate by between 5% and 6% per year, and up to 12% per annum in some cases.
The most valuable privately owned handgun is worth around R15 million.
