I would give a rating of negative 5 stars if it was possible. I transferred a gun to another individual at Krausewerk and noticed that they deal with appraising collectable military antiques. So I let the owner know what I had and then came back a week later to have it appraised. Since I am a novice when it comes to military collectables I came in the store trusting that the owner was going to give me a correct appraisal. Instead, the owner gave me a fraudulent estimate and I sold the antique to him based upon him giving a “truthful estimate”. Well after a few auction sites and dealer got back to me saying that the antique was actually worth 3-5 time what Mr. Krause falsely estimated it to be; I confronted Mr. Krause and he changed his story saying that the antique was actually not what he originally thought it was and that I was lucky that he took it off my hand. When I asked to return the money for the antique Mr. Krause said no and said I could talk to his lawyer. I was going to have my lawyer contact him, but don’t have the money to do so (which Mr. Krause was counting on). I recommend that any novice get other opinions prior to going to Krausewerk, or you may be ripped off like I was. I would not send my worst enemy to these heartless crooks; may the buyer/seller beware.
