The Blue Book of American Gunsmiths- 2nd Edition is the long awaited update to the 1st Edition that was published in 1983. The 1st Edition of American Gunsmiths achieved legendary status for those dealers, collectors, historians, and investors who needed to get more information on the thousands of obscure American manufacturers/trademarks not covered anywhere else. With 1st Editions now selling for over $200, this 2nd Edition with thousands of additional listings, has never been more valuable and useful.
- Thousands of additional listings not seen in the 1st Edition
- Listings of firearms manufacturers, trademarks, trade names, and gunsmiths dating back to the mid-17th century
- Standardized format that includes as much information as is known about the name, business or trade, year of birth and/or death, and location and relevant years of activity of the listings
