Ian Fleming’s Gun for Sale

A revolver specially made for Ian Fleming is going up for auction.

The Colt Python .357 Magnum revolver was presented to Fleming by the Colt Company in 1964, the year that Fleming died, and it is thought it was made by a very senior executive at the famous firm who was also a Bond fan.

The gun is described as “highly collectable” and is expected to fetch between £10,000 and £15,000 when it comes up for auction in Bonham’s Fine Modern Sporting Guns and Vintage Firearms sale on Wednesday March 28.

These things are so cool that I’ve added a “collectibles” category to the sidebar on the left.
