As a retired insurance adjuster, I would insure the arm for what you paid for it. Give a copy of the receipt to your agent to document the purchase price. You will want this insurance as a rider on your Home Owners policy. Also you will want "replacement value" coverage. If the arm is stolen or damaged in a fire, you can replace it with one of equal or greater value. You insurance company will only pay the greater amount AFTER you have found a replacement. If you insure the arm for a greater value than you actually paid for it you will need in most cases an appraisal from a certified firearms appraiser. We are hard to come by and I charge a hefty fee for doing the research work.
