It is still happening.They're great for dealers at gun shows that want to buy a gun for WAY under current collector value. Usually a guy will walk in with a gun and say "What's it worth?". The dealer then whips out the book and points to a column and says "look here, you're gun is only worth X". He then buys it for X minus 30%. A half hour later turns he puts it out on the table and sells it for X plus 50%. It happens time after time at the shows I used to attend...
I've never found their prices to be very accurate. I haven't looked at one in yearsHello all,
Obviously, when selling anything, the key issue is supply and demand.
That being said, how many members use the Blue Book of gun values when buying and selling used firearms? Should it
be considered the definitive guideline for buyers and sellers?
