    If it comes with the rights to the movie royalties I'll consider it...
    Oh wait, I'm poor.

    I'd hate to know I had five million and that's what I wanted to spend it on. I'd pay $500 for it if Harrison Ford hand delivered it in a stormtrooper costume. :confused:

    This has no business being auctioned on Gunbroker, and should be auctioned off by one of those movie and celebrity trivia auction houses.

    Bapty is the name of the armory that supplied the gun. It was nicknamed “the bapty” and its twin was nicknamed similarly for another armory.

    no way this can garner the starting price. It’ll function as an attention-getter for the seller for a looooong time.

    I'd rather spend my hard earned dollars on a military or police surplus firearm that might have some real history behind it (or might not) than to buy a Hollywood prop.

    You don’t buy stuff like that if all you have is five million.

    That’s more of a gift from your wife in return for the Van Gogh you bought for her, just because you had an extra $81.3 million to blow and $5 million is all the play money she has this month.

    I’d have rather gotten this one and a few truck loads of ammunition, myself.

    Absurd.

    Would be amusing if someone hit the BIN without the intention of paying just to make the seller eat the $175,000 Gunbroker fee until they could recover it through the non-paying-bidder claim process.

    Maybe a fake? Would be funny if it was.

    Meanwhile, the Holy Grail cup sold for $27k in 2016 and then $38k in 2019. This is the price range the gun will sell for, because movie lovers will set the price.

    One “Grail”, one “Bapty”

    Well the price seems high. Its a one of a kind after all. But this is a classic way to sell one of a kind items that you can not set a market price on..

    You 1st list something for a million-bajillion dollars.. So now you get alot of hype.. News outlets who do not care about news.. Click bait web sites will hype your item.. (Gun forums); Also through Gun Broker, this is costing the lister nothing to do this.

    For all you know this may be done by the studio to sell tickets for the next movie..

    Then when fame and time ebbs, millions will now know the item exists and you have established popular providence on it. Now you can send it to a Christies for a real auction.. (Or take up some ones private offer). Then it will say you have a chance to bid on a 5 million dollar gun. Or it could go on display as that.. Labeled Insured by Lloyd's of London for.

    It’s not even really being auctioned with a starting bid higher than its value.

    It’s also been on their for quite awhile.

    That's 1/4th what it cost to shoot the entire movie. I say we bring in Rick Harrison to haggle with the guy.

    Maybe if you are some lunatic Korean dictator who runs around the palace naked with the fedora and bull-whip already - or some megalomaniacal tech-industry fool with too much money and not enough sense.

    Me? I literally and quite honestly wouldn't give much of anything for that thing unless I had a guaranteed flip-sale already in the works.

    Hell, James Bond's Walther just sold for a little over 1/20th of that.

    Todd.

    Could be wrong, but it always looked like Indies gun seemed to be a Mod 1917 revolver to me. But that gun is maybe worth a couple thousand if it's really the gun used.
