Instantly research Standard Catalog of Firearms pricing data on your mobile device or desktop computer.
Gone are the days of relying on someone at a gun show or gun store to divulge the true value of a firearm, thanks to the new Find Guns application from Gun Digest. It’s available to anyone with a mobile device or computer.
While some gifted people are like walking encyclopedias of gun knowledge, we lesser mortals need some help. The Find Guns app empowers the rest of us to buy and sell guns with confidence — like being escorted by your very own gun-collecting expert.
A $3.99 monthly subscription gives you complete access to more than 110,000 gun value listings from the massive Standard Catalog of Firearms. For the best value, an annual subscription for $19.99 is available.
If that’s not your cup of tea, Find Guns can be used for free as a gun show finder. This allows you to search events by location, date and mileage.
“In the past, there hasn’t been an efficient way to keep pricing information handy at gun shows,” said Jim Schlender, publisher of Gun Digest. “Find Guns is the next generation of gun price guides. It offers our trusted gun pricing information through something most people carry around already — a smartphone.”
Knowledge is Power
Find Guns delivers the most critical thing you need to buy and sell guns — information. You can browse guns by manufacturer and make, view photos and descriptions, get gun values of firearms in six condition grades (from New-in-Box to Poor) and save guns you’re watching in your Favorites folder for future reference.
Not knowing the value of a gun by condition can impact its price by hundreds or even thousands of dollars. That’s why the Find Guns app can pay for itself with the first gun you buy. You’ll know what that firearm is actually worth, giving you the upper hand in negotiations.
“[Find Guns is] worth it for the gun show listings alone – and now they added prices from the Standard Catalog of Firearms,” wrote Greg K., a recent online reviewer. “Prices are good, cheaper than the book, which now I won't have to carry.”
