Some guns have historically been valuable. Winchester lever actions, 1885s, Pre 64 Model 70s, Sharps, etc. I've noticed that I can spent a couple of grand to buy a new high quality AR platform rifle. For that $2000 I can buy some pretty nice older rifles that are very likely to increase in value as time goes by. So, any thoughts on what if a higher end AR will be worth more in a decade or three, or will the old standbys be the ones worth incrementally more and the ARs just be like a used car?
