    CBn had previously reported that an archive of weapons from the James Bond films would be hitting the auction block on 5 December at Christie’s.

    Bloomberg reports that Sean Connery’s Walther PP, used in the first official 007 film, Dr. No, sold for $106,202 (about £54,000) at the event–double what it was estimated to sell for.

    The Walther P5, from Roger Moore’s Octopussy, sold for £7,200 (it was estimated to sell for £8,000).

    Other weapons that were up for auction at the event, originally announced by the Propstore of London included: Timothy Dalton’s WA2000 sniper rifle from The Living Daylights, Tanaka’s Gyro Jet gun from You Only Live Twice, Nick Nack’s Derringer from The Man with the Golden Gun, Pierce Brosnan’s Walther P99 used in Die Another Day and the huge “Tankbuster” gun from the same film. These weapons have now been decommissioned to UK legal requirements after being part of England’s most extensive movie armoury.
