Wyatt Earp’s Gun Among Firearms Featured in Upcoming Auction

posted on October 27, 2018

History will be on display, and for sale, for firearm enthusiasts at the end of this month for those who really want to bring home a piece that has seen action.

Morphy Auctions will hold an online auction between Oct. 30 and Nov. 3. Over 350 years worth of firearms will be up for sale on the site, and the event serves as one of the largest offerings of fully automatic weapons to come up for auction.

“This category is the hottest part of the gun market at the moment,” said Morphy’s Class III firearms expert John Keene. “They’ve become very desirable.”

Among the guns up includes the 1890 Colt Army revolver that belonged to Wyatt Earp, a Winchester Model 1873 lever-action that allegedly belong to the Lakota Sioux Chief who killed Gen. George Custer at Little Big Horn, a Colt Model 1924 automatic machine gun with tripod and accessories, a rare Colt 1849 pocket revolver book and many more impressive items.
