Sean Connery's original gun from first James Bond movie sells for $256,000 at auction


Don't be shaken or stirred, but a piece of James Bond history just sold for a huge sum of money.

The original gun used by Sean Connery in "Dr. No" sold for $256,000 at auction, according to the New York Post.

The deactivated Walther PP pistol, one of 1962 film's famous props, was sold to an anonymous buyer at the "Icons & Idols Trilogy: Hollywood" sale, hosted by Julien's Auctions, on December 3 in Beverly Hills, California.

While the identity of the new owner has not been revealed, the auction house did note the pistol was purchased by an American who “has seen every James Bond movie with their children.”

The iconic weapon fetched more than the $200,000 that the auction house had originally expected.
