My Webley Fosbery in .455 cost me 4000 and My Smith and Wesson Schofield cost me 3000 dollar. converted from euro.

The only flaw is that in time the Schofield is refinished. The colour is great. But they where to enthousiastic. The markings are gonne. I hate that. But. The only time when this revolver is on sale again, and that counts for the Fosbery to is when I am serious dead.

I sure would like to read that story. Titanium may be too light for a 45 ACP slide, but what about 9mm? I'm wondering if a titanium slide on a Lightweight Govt model 9mm would be doable?

I have since paid more for some trap guns, but in terms of ratio to earnings, my most expensive was a Winchester 21 Skeet. Shot a couple of rounds of skeet (not my game) and took it hunting pheasants once. Could not enjoy hunting with it, as I was constantly concerned about hurting it. Went back to an 870, happily ever since.

LOL..... the most 'valuable" gun I bought was my 6 1/2" Registered Magnum in 98% condition...................

for me the good news was; it was on consignment at a LGS for about 10% of it's then "Fair Market Value"....... so I've got about 5% of today's "FMV" in it.



Other than that a limited run steel frame, two tone Sig 220 .45 with Nills grips for just under a $1,000 about 10 years ago and a Wilson Combat Centurion Tactical for $1,250 as a retirement gift to myself.....it's serial # is the month and year of my birth........


Bought an Smith AR in late 2012 for just under a thousand..... the following week they were selling for +$2000, topping out at about $2,500 IIRC.......... now they are back down to the 2012 price.

I never thought that I would have a GRAND into just one firearm but I was offered this Model 41 S&W 5 1/2" heavy barrel.


But it came with an extra 7" barrel with attached red dot scope.



Then I was able to purchase the 5" field barrel for it. Extra mags and such brought the price up over the $1000 level.

I have essentially the same set but a No 2 in 20 and 28 gauges. I got it used several years ago but for the heck of it inquired at AyA as to the duplication cost today. The quote that came back was a shade under $14K not including shipping and any taxes! For your information; I have a fair market value on this set today of about half of retail.

I can tell you I went on to an auction site...about 30 minutes after taking an Ambien...and was placing bids for Registered Magnums (Magna plural?) for 20 minutes or so! Did not win any of them!

Mine is not that impressive financially - I spent $1500 on a Kleinguenther K-14 deer rifle.

A cased Holland & Holland rifle in .300 H&H...truly a work of art but I couldn’t live in it and it went to help fund my house. IIRC I paid $11k for it?

Several years ago spent $2500 to have Hamilton Bowen convert a 44Mag Redhawk to 475Linebaugh. The gun cost me $500 new. Sold it for more than I had in it.

I used to think $900-1000 was too much for a revolver made in the last 30 years. Not so much anymore, everything is really skyrocketing fast. Hard to find stuff is still hard to find but now it comes with a price.

This Dan Wesson 740 with 2 extra barrels ran me almost $1300. Where the heck else are you going to get one though?




I should be picking up another dan Wesson super mag tomorrow (375 SM). It was a better price for the gun but the dies, brass, etc is gonna drive the cost way up.

No lock 340PD, $800 + but I needed the weight saving of this model and it’s my EDC. It was very difficult to find w/o the lock so I believe the money was well spent.

Sure do miss her. I had fired over 8000 rounds before I sold it.
I did the exact same thing with the exact same gun for the exact same money....to restore an old Chevelle...and I feel that exact same way you do.

I went an auction, smitten with a British double rifle, 5 large in hand. It sold for 35.

SLT223: If the Thompson were for sale here you could add a zero to the price! I have never even see this full auto Beretta model before. Is this a police issue firearm in Europe? I know Glock at one time offered a full auto model but they are very scarce here!

A Stevens Favorite originally in 32 RF that my dad had converted to 32 S&W Long. That was the first firearm for which I ever reloaded. Since then (1973) I've probably spent more on reloading than any half dozen firearms I own combined.

Well the modern semi auto version of the Tommy gun is sold for $ 2700 here, so that was an easy decision.

Here’s some background on the Beretta 93 R

Beretta 93R: Another cool gun you can’t own - Guns.com

The Glock 18 is still in production. I received the special license to acquire one last month, now awaiting delivery.

Most expensive firearm you ever bought or almost bought?

The Ruger gp100 with 4.20 barrel chambered in .357 magnum with a 6 shot cylinder.

That I bought earlier this month with sales tax included I paid $559.79 for it.

That is the highest amount of money I have ever paid for a firearm

Well, there is one at my local gunshop that I'd love to have, but I have absolutely no use for it, and it's too expensive for me now to just be a safe queen. But it is SO pretty.

It's a Sporterized Springfield, 30/06, with the most beautiful piece of wood I've ever seen for a stock. I mean the metal work is great, but it's that hunk of wood that JUMPs out at me. Shoot, I don't even know of a place I could shoot it, and I don't hunt anymore anyway, so it would just gather dust. I have to stop and look at it every time I walk by though. Price...$1,200.00. And price isn't THAT far out of my normal comfort zone, but I can't can't justify it just to look at.

There are a couple of $3,000 Parker shotguns that I just can't afford. And would never use them either.

I have paid over a grand each for 3 of my S&W revolvers. A 3rd model 44 Russian, a 4" 16-4 and my 500 with a 2 power Leopold scope.

I yearn for a registered magnum and a Barret 50B BMG. Thing about the Barret that makes me cringe is a scope for it would be around the same price as the gun itself.

My most expensive gun was a convertible Ruger Single Six (22 LR & 22 mag cylinders) for about $65 in 1972. That one gun caused me to buy all the others.

Did buy

Seekins SP10 for $1600 LNIB ($2500 new and currently made to order) topped with a Leupold Mark 4 ER/T 6.5-20x M5A2 factory refurb for $1200 (same optic on the Army's M2010 and probably about $2000 new I think)

Almost bought

Bid $1200 on a Remington 40-XS .300WM on Gunbroker. Sold for just under $2000. Technically a good thing, as raising the funds would have been somewhat difficult, but do wish I could have snagged it. Don't expect to see another one anytime soon.

Mine is a 1903A4 Remington sniper rifle. Paid $3k. My trench guns cost less but are worth more.
