$6M dollar gun

Recommended Posts

It must be nice to be able to indulge in things like this.

On Aug. 27, the Colt Single Action Army revolver that Pat Garrett used in 1881 to put an end to Billy the Kid in the desert Southwest sold at auction for $6,030,313—the highest price paid for a civilian firearm at auction, perhaps any gun, in history.

I was a boat mechanic years past, the one thing I remember about the customers that had the million dollar boats, they were more worried about who is trying to rip them off. They never had time for having fun. Truly a sad bunch.

Haven't read the article yet but it would be interesting to list the guns from famous/infamous people & how much they last got sold for.

I remember when the only civilian model of a Luger in .45acp that was used in the 1910 pistol trials was sold. It went for a cool $1mil & yes, the buyer not only shot it, he allowed the American Handgunner writer to shoot it as well.

The Luger buyer owned over 10,000 Lugers in his private collection, so he had $$$$. 

I would think the guns used to kill MLK, RFK & John Lennon would sell for a high amount. Certainly not the $6mil level though.
