When I cruise through the Buy/Sell section I see the usual info - type, caliber, etc, but many ads say they include "papers." What papers? The only paper I've walked away w/ when purchasing a new firearm is the receipt. Am I missing something here?

Might should have placed this in B/S, but there's alot of traffic here -

As always, stay safe and thanks for your responses.

And yes, I resisted the urge to include, "Papers? We don't need no stinkin' papers."

I think what most people mean are the manual and sometimes maybe registration card for the warranty that comes with a new firearm.

Some guns may hold their value better with the papers, Especially older guns. In collector type guns, it is proof of dates and authenticity.

Having the original box and manual adds value if its considered a "collectors item"

At Gun shows, when trading, lots of dealers wanna know if you have the box....if you do...you'll get more money for your gun

Um, you don't have an old Glock box on the way to the trash, do you?

I need one for a G21.
