I use Peterson's Modern Gun Values in conjunction with Fjestad's Blue Book of Gun Values and Peterson's Standard Catalog of Military Firearms. A comparison of the values found in the three books gives me confidence when determining the value of a firearm. The Blue Book is really the standard for pricing but the Blue Book understandably lacks the photographs of the firearms listed. Modern Gun Values and the Standard Catalog, while listing a much smaller number of guns,provides photos and descriptive text describing about half of the guns found in the book.
This reference shows the limitation of Electronic Media. I have owned MGV previous editions, and similar works for many years and find they are very valuable and quick to check current prices and other information.This is neither quick nor easy to use. There is an index, of a sort, but it is not searchable. The layout is such that you have to spend literally hours finding a particular make and model, unless you are lucky and it is at the beginning of a chapter, and the information is brief and as accurate as the printed version.I would vote NO about buying this work in Kindle version again. The printed version is much faster and easier to use and less frustration. The lack of a searchable index is a great drawback and hence poor execution. The only thing the Kindle version has going for it was price and fast availability which is a very fragile base. I needed an updated work fast and that is why I bought this. In ease of use I would give it TWO STARS at best.
Gun Digest provides a clear, concise review for a myriad of weapons. I appreciate the fact that the publisher includes so many pictures, however I would have given five stars if the book contained a picture of every weapon listed. That would certainly increase the volume size, but would make it a better reference, especially for the lesser known models.
Books are books so what can I say. I purchase only the book that I as a Gunsmith would use or maybe like to read. So that is what I did here, It reads easy and it is on my E Book account and on my Kindle and my Dell Tablet and all three love working with the E Book application system... There you go, if you have a an E Book system I recommend that system for all your Tech type books.
I like this book for what it provides. Hard to find your exact match, but once you do it can be book marked for later. Would be helpful with search on kindle fire.
This book has been very handy when trying to learn the value of handguns and rifles at various auctions I have attended.
very nice has all info I require, when I need to look something up. Thanks very quick ship. Thanks Five stars.
