The original gun used by James Bond in Dr. No is going up for auction. The late Sean Connery’s 007 (reluctantly) carried a Walther PP for the first time in the 1962 film.
Now, that same prop is hitting the auction block — and is expected to go for some big bucks. The prop gun will be among the items offered in Julien’s Auctions upcoming “Icons & Idols Trilogy: Hollywood” event on Dec. 3. The 007 prop is estimated to fetch between $150,000 to $200,000, according to the auction house.
As Bond fans are aware, in Dr. No., Bond was made to switch over to the Walther PP because there was worry from MI6 brass his beloved Beretta would jam again. From that moment, the Walther became the iconic Bond sidearm throughout the series.
Dr. No marked Connery’s first appearance as Bond. The legendary, Oscar-winning actor died Oct. 31 at the age of 90. His death was mourned around the globe.
