The 39th edition of the Blue Book of Gun Values by S.P. Fjestad will be available in early April. The book has been updated to include new 2018 makes and models, and also important pricing updates for many current and discontinued models.

The book has 2,512 pages that are filled to the brim with valuable information, including 1,700 manufacturers’ trademarks, approximately 30,000 gun model descriptions, and over 180,000 specific values. There’s over 45 pages of serialization information—allowing the year of manufacture to be ascertained for many firearms makes and models. Additionally, the 80-page Photo Percentage Grading System (PPGS) insert has been updated to accurately grade all pistols, revolvers, rifles, and shotguns based on percentages of original condition.

For the first time in decades, many collectible firearms (especially AR-15s) have seen their value go down significantly. The new 39th edition carefully tracks this new trend.

MSRP: $54.95. The Blue Book of Gun Values database is also available on flash drive, and an online subscription that’s updated monthly. These options include thousands of high resolution color images. To learn more, please visit www.bluebookofgunvalues.com
