Ever wonder what certain firearms in your collection are worth? Think that ad for the used Blastomatic 3000 is way overpriced? Afraid your significant other might sell your guns for what you claimed you paid for them after you leave this earthly plane? For longer than four decades now, S.P. Fjestad's "Blue Book of Gun Values" has been the go-to guide for gun values, with more than 24,000 different firearm models over 1,700 manufacturers in this latest edition. With handy, full-color guides to help determine a gun's condition, alphabetical listing of manufacturer by firearm type and a list of specs and details too long to list, basically if it exists out there, the "Blue Book of Gun Values" has an entry for it. Firearm manufacturer out of business? Still in there. Gun was only in production for one year? It's in there.  

One of the handiest features in the “Blue Book of Gun Values” is the PPGS—Photo Percentage Grading System. In some 80 pages, varying levels of conditions are shown in full color for numerous firearm types and interests. Grading systems include the PPGS in addition to NRA Modern, NRA antique and other designations and really help to narrow down a particular firearm’s condition and worth. It’s a quick, easy system that’s a definite bonus in helping figure out just what you’re looking at. 

Pre-orders are being accepted for “Blue Book of Gun Values” for only $49.95, which is expected to ship next month. For more information or to order your own copy, visit bluebookofgunvalues.com.
