"Standard Catalog of Military Firearms" contains entries for more than 2,000 models of military firearms manufactured between c. 1870 and today. Containing approximately 1600 black & white photos and expanded descriptions, its inclusion of bayonet and magazines/clips listings, photos and prices fills a long-standing gap in military-weapon price guides.
Also, this edition differentiates between values for import-marked (post-1986; generally less valuable) and non-import-marked (pre-1986; generally more valuable) models.
Most price guides don't recognise this distinction. As a result, many beginning collectors have got burned.
They won't get burned with this book.
