Gun Digest Book of Modern Gun Values
Modern Gun Values is a uniquely valuable guide to the world of modern firearms. (“Modern” firearms refers to those built from c. 1899 to present. Guns made before 1899 are considered antiques. The 1899 date roughly represents the end of the blackpowder era and the beginning of the smokeless powder era.) As prices of antique firearms have risen, putting them out of the reach of most collectors, attention has turned to more affordable guns of the 20th century, especially guns of the Baby Boom (c. 1945-1980). Unlike antiques, these guns are acquired for shooting rather than for putting behind glass in a collection. Modern Gun Values is uniquely positioned to capitalize on the widespread interest in these newer special-interest guns. In Modern Gun Values, the reader will be not only be able to accurately identify shootable modern firearms, but assign up-to-the-minute values to them as well. With this information, the reader will be able to buy, sell, and trade modern firearms with confidence and without fear that he or she is paying too much or selling for too little. Features 8-pp. color photo insert that illustrates various condition grades.
