Already have one.....
Having a gun in your hand is much more effective than having the entire police department on the phone!

When calculating your bid, don't forget about the 18.5% Buyer's Premium and 1% Service Fee.  On a $1.5 million dollar gun, those fees really add up.

Already have one for each hip. I could use a belt/holster rig though if anybody here has one available for this model.

The big time Collectors over at Colt say that this gun is the most collectible Colt around.

Most project that the $1.3M price is way too cheap and it will bring a lot more.

Sounds like a bargain.

Maybe it's just me but I could never spend that much on anything you can lift with one hand.

Do appreciate the history of the fine gun.

Here is the prices realized page for the auction.

The upper right hand shows that the Walker set a new record high price.
