The 35th edition does not cover some manufacturers at all. For example, no Norinco items are listed at all in the 35th edition though Norinco was covered in prior editions. Readers are referred to [...] in the 35th edition. When you go to the website you must pay additional fees for access. Rather disappointing. The book is challenging to use due to a poor indexing system. I suggest getting the online subscription or the cd version if you want to establish values on items such as the Norinco NDM-86. These venues are easier to search as well. Overall the book is disappointing, but better than nothing.

I was disappointed this time, after relying on four previous revisions of this tome. Seeking info on the Colt reproductions of their percussion revolvers I was informed that I should buy a different volume published to address this area. Not acceptable in such an expensive and purportedly complete treatment of firearms. These are common and clearly documented Colt guns, and I can only assume that an exclusivity agreement kept the author/publisher from informing the readers who bought this book of the common knowledge they possessed.

There is no reference to Finnish military rifles although the text does tell the reader at one point I found to see such a section by direct reference. I was frustrated by finding these two failings in my first 20 minutes of attempted use as I sought to update my understanding of values of guns I was thinking of selling. The book failed in two significant ways in my initial attempt to rely upon it, and I was reduced to searching on-line gun sales sites for completed auction information to meet my needs. I suspect the editing of this volume is not up to prior volumes' standards.

THIS BOOK IS FULL OF INFORMATIVE DESCRIPTIONS AND GOOD ILLISTRATIONS. THE GUN VALUES ARE ACCURATE. THIS IS A GREAT BOOK AND IT OFFERS SOME HELPFUL THOUGHTS.

i own some guns and i also buy and sell some of them, and this book is required for getting information on the prices and values of firearms. it also has much more informatiion, such as gun company information and serial number information.

It provides the tools to evaluate what your inventory is worth in today's market and what things you may acquire are worth from a buyer vs value perspective.

If you have more than a casual interest in guns, this book is a must have. No good gun shop or gun buyer would be without this book.

Great book, as it is every year! But thank goodness for Amazon, I saw this book listed at more than a few places for double what I paid! Although this book is primarily sold to estimate current firearm values, in my opinion this is still the best source of pertinent information like years of manufacture, variety of models and their differentials, and guidelines for evaluating condition.
