How to Figure Your Cost
SCI’s Gun Insurance is a great value.
The cost is just $1.25 per $100 of insured value, with a minimum premium
of $25 ($2000 of insurance.)
We always use the manufacturer’s
retail list price for guns still being manufactured and a value not to
exceed 95% for guns no longer being made. Custom work and accessories can
be insured in addition to the gun. To determine the manufacturer’s retail
list price or to see if recent bill of sale or appraisals is needed,
please contact us as 800 925-7767.
