The Blue Book is updated and expanded.
The new 30th Anniversary Edition of the Blue Book of Gun Values by S.P. Fjestad has been expanded to almost 2,300 pages, easily making it the highest page count of any firearms book currently in print. All new 2009 makes and models have been included, plus updated values on discontinued firearms and antiques. Paramilitary rifle values have also been brought up-to-date, reflecting recent major changes resulting from political changes in Washington, D.C.
Once again, the 80-page Photo Percentage Grading System provides high resolution color images that are the last word to help ascertain any firearm's correct condition factor based on the percentage of original condition. Revolvers, pistols, rifles, and shotguns are also shown separately, in addition to NRA Antique Condition Factors.
Other sections have also been expanded, including serialization, and the helpful Trademark Index, which lists all pertinent information on many of the world's firearms manufacturers, distributors, and importers. Most of the information contained in this publication is simply not available anywhere else, for any price.
In addition to book form, the Blue Book is also available by subscription online and on CD-ROM.
