Introducing the first edition of a one-of-a-kind handgun value guide from the editors at 2nd Amendment Media: A Guide Book of Carry Gun Values.

This first edition covers handguns ranging from pocket-sized derringers to .45 Winchester Magnum M1911s. This full color book offers accurate pricing estimates along with handgun specifications, production history, and valuable market information. A Guide Book of Carry Gun Values also introduces the original Red Book Code™, a universal system of identifying and organizing firearms on the secondary market. Along with the Red Book Code™, the book also establishes a consumer-friendly pricing model. The editors offer values for multiple buying and selling scenarios, making it easy for both consumers and dealers to access accurate pricing.

Our pricing model includes the following:

Dealer-to-Consumer (D2C)
Consumer-to-Dealer (Trade-In)
Consumer-to-Consumer (C2C)
Last Manufacturer’s List Price (LMP)

Additionally, since wear is a huge factor in determining a firearm’s value, A Guide Book of Carry Gun Values offers a firearm condition grading scale, rating guns at NIB (New in Box), Mint, Excellent, VG+ (Very Good Plus), Good, Fair, and Poor. With all of these elements to offer, this book will quickly become your go-to reference guide for handgun pricing.
