Appraisals and Evaluations

Blue Book Publications, Inc. is the ultimate clearing house for gun information. Because the volume of gun questions now requires full-time attention, we have developed a standardized policy that will enable us to provide you with the service you have come to expect from Blue Book Publications, Inc. To that end, we have extended all of these services to our website.

To ensure that the research department can answer every gun question with an equal degree of thoroughness, a massive firearms library of over 1,250 reference books, thousands of both new and old factory brochures, price sheets, most major auction catalogs, and dealer inventory listings are maintained and constantly updated. It's a huge job, and we answer every question like we could go to court on it.
