At one point I was...
About $49,000 ago.
His description of the pistol sounds too good to be true, but thinking back on the procurement process back then, it prolly ended up in somebody's drawer.
Shazam! Seems pretty amazing.
Shipped 15 February 1912 in a shipment of 200 pistols for the Army.
I will let you boys hold it after I win the auction, but you must wear white cotton gloves.
Would you carry that in leather or kydex?
I'm pretty sure it is going to collector........ "a" collector.... NOT "The"Collector.
That seller is quite renowned for his knowledge and expertise on old military 1911's. He is a well known member of THIS forum and makes an appearance from time to time.
Not sure if that is the most expensive 1911 sale at auction ever, but it is the highest I have ever seen. Thought you all would enjoy seeing a real rarity and what it could fetch.
@M1911info , thanks for the opportunity to see that one.
Yes he does,and just seeing his name you know it's legit.
Beyond legit I would say. More like GOSPEL . . .
If I'm not mistaken, that particular gun is his current avitar . . . . .
And willing to bet we've seen this beauty before!!
Definitely not me.
I’m more of a drive-by and chuck out an ridiculous opening bid type of gunbroker user. Every now and then it works
K. A little early for levity, got it. Apologies @M1911 for any toe stomping.
Never too early for levity. There are a lot of new members following that might not be aware . .
I never thought of Gunbroker as a place where high value collectibles were sold. I guess I was wrong. In a way, this show how far Gunbroker has risen in the community.
And cool gun.
You would be amazed at what gets put up for sale there.
I like posting listings from there from time to time - the GOOD, the BAD, and the UGLY . . .
It has always been my go to source for research. Bought a number of guns there. My safe queen Colt Series 70 .38 Super was a GunBroker score.
The one in the back.
I wish I was the seller.
I would be content on EITHER side of that transaction.
