Normally, Gunbroker is more of a pawnshop palace than it is a collector's paradise. But, occasionally, you will see something put up for auction that only a king's ransom could obtain.

Check this out:

This would make a great "truck gun" - that is, if your whip is a Bentley Bentaga.

A cased 3 digit Baby Patterson in remarkable condition with the original accessories and a spare cylinder?

You can find anything for sale on the internet these days.

Might be just a feeler to see what the market might be. I would suspect that Colt Manufacturing LLC might be interested for their museum.

Do the banks consider mortgages on guns?

The Clintons could scrounge-up enough change from under their couch cushions to buy a dozen of those.

If I wanted another truck gun, the 1847 Colt Walker at the bottom of the page would be more my
speed. Well, it's time to call the banker and get a second mortgage on the house so I can make
the minimum bid at $ 154,000.00

Meanwhile, it must be the Xmas season since the buyers on GB are putting up some ridiculously high bids for some rather ordinary guns that retail for less!

Good thing I'm not in a hurry to add another gun to my collection. My next purchase will be for a target .22 like a Ruger Mark, a Browning Buck Mark or maybe some Maker's Mark {on the rocks}

Nah, I was looking for a matched pair with consecutive serial numbers.

It'll never sell.:p

It's steel and wood. No space age plasti- I mean- polymer on it.

No tritium sights and how are you supposed to mount a laser, flashlight or bayonet on it? There's not even an accessory rail on it!

Maybe. I'm pretty sure that if you wanted to buy Patton's revolver, or John Wilkes Booth's Deringer (not Derringer), a bank might mortgage your single wide, assuming the tires are good.
