posted on April 11, 2018

The Blue Book of Gun Values, a series that has nearly 2 million copies in circulation across the globe, has released its 39th edition, and it’s well worth its value.

Some of the most important updates in the newest version include new 2018 firearms, as well as modern price listings on more than 180,000 firearms, both current and discontinued, including current pricing on various incarnations of modern sporting rifles (AR-15 platforms).

The 39th edition spans more than 2,500 pages that contain almost 1,700 trademarks and nearly 30,000 descriptions of firearms from across the globe. The Blue Book of Gun Values also includes 45 pages of serialization information, aiding in identifying the year of manufacturing for nearly any firearm one can find. A feature of the book that collectors in particular will find helpful is a “Photo Percentage Grading System” to assist in determining the condition of a firearm, with guidelines available for pistols, revolvers, rifles and shotguns.

Digital subscriptions for the Blue Book of Gun Values also are available and include thousands of high-resolution color photographs that will satisfy even the most discerning firearm collector.
