Overall I feel this is a good buy as I have identified several older model weapons without much trouble. However, trying to find more recent model guns has been dismal. For example try to find any of the new Sig Sauer pistols or any of the new Derringers! Anyway, I have identified a couple of H&R pistols (pretty neat trick, good black and white photos helped tremendously) and a couple of rifles (one a Winchester rifle and you know how many flavors of those exist!) again by picture then description. I like how the book is broken into three sections (pistol, rifle, shotgun). The pistol part is broken into semi-auto then revolver for each company presented. I would have liked to have a more comprehensive breakout of new weapons (as I mentioned before) and more information on the various companies (some had nothing but an address...if that), but all in all a must have books for my library. A good buy.

This book is a good, quick reference for most available firearms, and has some particularly good sections on older arms, such as the early 20th century Luger pistols. It does seem to be missing some of the more common retail products (for example, finding and identifying the rifles sold at most Wal-Mart stores was difficult, or they weren't included...yet these are more likely to be found in circulation than a pre-64 Model 70). There were good black-and-white illustrations of many guns, but some guns had no photos and this is a drawback...especially if you are trying to identify an old family gun or the like.
Overall, it is still worth the price, and I recommend it as a supplement to some of the other more exhaustive works.

Heres an example. Go on sites such as gunbroker or any other online firearms sales site and compare prices.
HAMMERLI .22cal listed in the hundreds of dollars are fetching still over $1,000 in good condition. Ruger NM super blackhawks same thing the prices listed for .44 cal,.41,.45 cal are not accurate.
Taurus revolvers are pretty spot on but derringers for $40 etc, is unreasonable unless the gun traders guide puts an note that prices are for private party and or pawn shops. Gun shows,gun shops and online sales are no wheres close to the low prices listed in this book. Remember alot has happened in the media and im sure that has raised prices as well but other thanusing the pictures as a reference, this book is nothing but bathroom reading material.
Walmart has it new for $22 and i would save your money and go online to gunsamerica or gunbroker and just see what a specific fire arm is selling for to judge where the price should be realistically.
Good luck

Out of 3 different guns that I tried to find in the book, none of them are listed. These are all modern guns and nothing obscure.
