    There is no "one source" where you can get all information about firearms.Your question could be compared to something like: Where can one get information about all cars?All the manufactures and variations, and the shear volume of information, make compiling information difficult.That said, I would suggest, if you don't already have it, to get a copy of "The Blue Book of Gun Values" by S.P. Fjestad. Get the most recent edition, or even and older copy if you're just looking for general information and are not too concerned with current prices.You can reference most firearms with the Blue Book and get a little basic information. There are volumes of other texts on specific manufactures for more detailed information-- an amazon.com search should give you a number sources.

    Bluebook.com has the most dreadful markup I've ever seen. $10 for the BB values on one manufacturer!Go to a bookstore and pay for a real one. I dont recall how much they are.

    Don't just want to find out about my guns. I want to be able to look up thinks by there serail numbers. That will tell me when they were made. the bluebook means nothing to me.

    2001 Standard Catalog of Firearms, by Ned Schwing. Books a Million, $32.95. Good reference, but like BB the prices are sometimes high, and sometimes 'wish I could find one for that'. Serialization is tough. You just about have to get a book on each manufacturer for that.SCF and BB have a few. The web site I gave you is pretty good for quick reference, but it's BB.
    I'll buy just one more gun and I'll quit.....HONEST....History is a vast early warning system

    Some of the Manufactures will tell you the date a gun was manufactured but I believe they will be reluctant to give you any approximate value information. That is where the blue book comes in handy. P.S. I just e-mailed Remmington about one of my shotguns and it took them about 3 days and I had the answer back. Auto
