The most enduring asset class over the past 300 years is quality firearms.— Carvel Webb, SAAACA
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.

Louis XIII had 10 firearms by the age of 10. By the time he reached a mature age he had 200!— Carvel Webb, SAAACA
Pre-1900s antique firearms are deregulated in the UK. One of our challenges is to stop our treasures from ending up there.— Carvel Webb, SAAACA
