Blue book of gun values

Is there anywhere online that will give you some sort of list of gun values? I've looked everywhere and all I can find is adds for buying the actual blue book of gun values or different firearms for sale. I would buy the book but its almost 50 bucks, and for as much as I would use it, it wouldn't be worth it.

Use the online guns auctions and look for the average selling prices. That's the best gauge out there.

Re: Blue book of gun values

The Blue Book is a joke..Prices fluctuate by area..Go to Gunbroker and check out the prices on auctions that are almost over...This will give you a decent idea what folks are willing to give for any particular gun.

Re: Blue book of gun values

You can google around and find the Blue Book used for a fraction of new cost. The values don't change much over a few yesrs. I rarely look at it, because their values are way off. Some too high, others excessively low. Check out the gun auctions. Value is really what someone will pay for an item.

You hit the nail on the head here. "Area" changes the price outcome in many cases. The Blue Book is a good guideline, but you will notice in certain areas prices are higher based on either demand or availability.

Most libraries have the Blue Book.

If all you are interested in is one specific model, just go to a Barnes and Noble and browse thru a copy.

Re: Blue book of gun values

I prefer checking online sites like gunbroker and gunsamerica. While many prices are off the mark (usually too high), it still gives an average of what a particular firearm may be fetching at any given time?

And local markets are often not reflected on these sites, unless ya pay attention to where the seller is located?

Rem. pump rifles are a good example of "local market prices", as they are not as popular in many areas of the country, as they are in the NE and PA in particular.

Some folks' learnin' curves just look like circles...3A Camp/also hunt 4B

I use completed auctions on GunBroker, that way you are not looking at what people want for their guns, but what people are actually willing to pay. jmo lenny
