posted on May 6, 2016

Are you an AR fanatic? Do you rock a Glock? Wondering what your SIG P226 is worth? Or perhaps you just want to confirm your next purchase is really a good deal. Whether you’re curious about the current value of your tactical firearm, or looking to buy, sell or just put a value on a family heirloom, the 7th Edition Blue Book of Tactical Firearms Values by Blue Book Publications, Inc. is your go-to resource for reliable information.

S.P. Fjestad—who has brought us the Blue Book of Gun Values for 37 years—continues to provide updated values and information reflecting integral changes in the gun industry. Fifteen years ago there were fewer than 25 AR-15 manufacturers. Now there are more than 250 manufacturers included in this edition—which has nearly doubled in size to 700 pages. Some of the information inside includes:

  • New tactical companies, plus the newest 2016 makes and models, along with important pricing updates on many current and discontinued models
  • Trends in firearms collectability
  • Nearly 635 manufacturers/trademarks, over 6,500 individual gun model descriptions, and over 50,000 values
  • Detailed model descriptions and proprietary tactical features/finishes terminology is used whenever possible, such as Magpul, Ergo, Hogue, KeyMod, Cerakote, Melonite, Picatinny rail(s), Novak, Mission First Tactical, Lothar Walther, etc.
