Gun Bloggers and gun enthusiasts, I need your help!

Hi Gun bloggers and gun enthusiasts,

I am trying to compile a “Global Gun Price Index” to see how the price of firearms compare in different parts of the world.

If you are able to help me or have suggestions please feel free to email me. My email address is on the top left sidebar of my blog ( The Firearm Blog) or you can post a comment on the blog.

Unfortunately I only speak english. Finding the gun prices of non english speaking countries is not easy. Nor is it easy in foreign english speaking countries as I do not know the best online gun stores to get prices from.

So far I have been researching the Remington .308 700 SPS (blued). I chose the 700 SPS because I thought it would be a common gun found world wide. I would like to expand this to many other types of guns such as the Mossberg 500 shotgun, Ruger 10/22 rifle and Glock 17 pistol.

I have found prices for the Remington 700 SPS rifle in the following countries:

  • USA
  • Canada
  • New Zealand
  • Australia
  • UK

Here is a graph showing my findings for the Remington 700 SPS .308 (blued):

Below is a picture of the spreadsheet I have been using. I will be uploading the actual spreadsheet soon. I am busy tidying it up and may use Zoho to host it so anyone can edit it. Once I upload it I will update this page.

If you have catalogs, knowledge of overseas gun websites or know people in another country who can look up prices then please let me know.

I am especially interested in the following countries:

  • South Africa (an english speaking country but I could not find any prices online!)
  • EU Member States
  • Russia
  • Israel
  • Middle Eastern countries

Any information I received and publish on the “Gun Price Index” will be freely available to the entire online gun community under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 License so that everyone benefits.


Thanks for any help.

UPDATE: Unfortunately although many people have wished me luck none have been able to give me gun prices. If you are able to supply me gun prices from your country please contact me.
