GUN REPORT MAGAZINES – EXCELLENT REFERENCE MATERIAL: “GUN REPORT” was a very highly respected antique arms magazine published from 1955 until 2011, catering to collectors of firearms, edged weapons, ammunition, accoutrements and appendages.  With the magazine no longer in business, back issues are still sought after as valuable sources of information.   

The excellent articles published in the magazine through the years were often the sole source of information on some of the rarer or obscure pieces in the field.  In addition to the articles, the issues contain regular columns specifically addressing such topics as Lugers, Ordnance Department history and information, collector’s ammunition, and book reviews.  In some cases, these columns contain information available no where else.  The antique gun dealers’ ads with photographs provide some interesting insight as well, reflecting prices through the years and highlighting offerings of very special pieces. 

These complete issues have been bundled into groupings reflecting a general period of the publication.  Each set is offered below with the issues identified by date and with some sampling of the articles or information contained in that particular set.  The individual magazines are in very good to excellent condition and as far as I could tell, they are complete.   

These groupings are offered as is.  I will not pull individual issues for sale and the sales are final.  This is a scarce opportunity to benefit from a former collector’s retention of these issues through the years.  Each group is priced and described below, and your order will be shipped “Media Mail”, one of the least expensive rates offered by the USPS.
