    As I was walking around the gun show last week admiring the beautiful old guns I couldn't help to think if any of the newer guns (especially hand guns) made today will be those valued guns of tomorrow. Will all this plastic guns be the guns our great great grand kids will admire and want to own years from now.

    So here is my question......

    What new guns today (revolver, semi-auto, etc.) do you feel will be greatly valued years from now?

    Absolutely. A revolver is a 'classic' gun. And more people own semi-autos than revolvers, I believe, so I think revolvers might be prized in years to come.

    Colts and any gun with a high capacity clip. I believe eventually they will ban high cap clips from production.

    Prediction: hi cap mag ban in 3.5 years, "assault weapon" ban too. I hope I'm wrong.

    Any new gun is valuable from the minute you purchase it. It may save your life.

    Keep 'em long enough & mere inflation will make them more valuable than what you paid for them. Even my wifes old Raven .25 would sell for more than what she paid for it.

    What will make a gun gain REAL value might be it's rarity when manufactured, such as limited editions, but mainly it's specific history, not the brand, platform, etc.

    An example would be a WWII issued 1911 at maybe $3K-$5K, but one traced back to a WWII Medal Of Honor winner maybe $10K-$15K.

    Whatever Nanny/Ninny Sam says is "high cap"; 10 in most of the socialist areas (commiefornia, shecago, etc.).

    I think many of Colt's anniversary edition guns (mainly the 2011 1911) will be worth a pretty penny. Even the Mosin Nagant could become worth a butt load depending on what happens between now and then. Many of the Mausers, Enfields, Springfields, Garands, and other old battle rifles will be worth a lot too.

    +1 TWW, at least I hope. My Centennial Model O1911ANVIII unfired and will stay that way.
