Default What makes this Triple Lock worth $31,625, at least in 2013?

Reference:

Access to this page has been denied.

Yes, I get it that it's all about condition, but having said that, even a Target Model in the standard calibre with a standard barrel length has a finite value, even with condition. I would have thought that the pre-auction estimate of $15,000 to $25,000 was extremely optimistic, and yet this one exceeded that by a fair bit, although the hammer price would include commission.

I have one like this, a Target Model, if not as good, nearly so, and I paid a fraction of what this one hammered at. It seems to me that extra percent or two wouldn't be worth that much of a premium.

Then again, it's Rock Island Auction, where reality doesn't really seem to exist. I'm guessing two bidders got in a bidding war...or...

Perhaps someone on this forum now owns this one and can elaborate.

If this one were to come up for auction today, what do you think it would bring?

Interestingly, it has a lanyard ring, and is in .44 S&W Special. As the serial number is 14139, this one likely was one of the ones that shipped to Shapleigh Hardware in December 1917 and January 1918. Many of those were in .455 Webley, and many .455 Webley revolvers were assembled with the intent of shipping to the British Government, and the British Government purchased revolvers with the lanyard ring. I'm guessing as this was the final cleanup of parts from which this revolver likely originated, perhaps a few more frames with lanyard rings existed than did .455 Webley barrels and one or more may have been fitted with a .44 S & W Special barrel, and cylinder.

It's a beautiful gun and to some people (collectors) money is no object. In a rational world a gun like this may sell for 50-75% of this value today, unless two bidders wanted it really badly.

First thing that comes to mind is that it might of had some type of provenance that was not listed for one reason or another.


Another possibility is that someone really needed that gun.
Last year I had to try to buy some family heirlooms at auction that my stepsister refused to give back to us that we had left in the house for the benefit of our stepfather. Sometimes its hard to believe what people are capable of.

If I had say 100 million dollar and it was earning me 2% per year after taxes I would buy one each with 5" a 6" and a 8" barrels at that price and scrape by the rest of the year on $1,900,000.

Some people got more money than they can spend. Think what Jeff Bezo could pay and never miss it. If he makes 1% per year on his 100 billion, he could blow $2,739,027 every day and never touch the principal. Thats works out to about 88 $31,000 purchases per day.

This is spot on.

The thing is, think about someone who gets out of car collecting and takes up gun collecting. If you are used to spending a million bucks on a single car, 30 grand for the best example possible of something is like nothing.

Some people pay $10,000 for a bottle of wine or Conac. and then drink it. Plenty of places you can drop thousands on a "nice dinner and have nothing for your safe.

There are only a small number of target triple locks and someone wanted one and the cost had absolutely nothing to do with it. There are 630 Billionaires in the US, there are not anywhere near 630 target triple locks for sale. He wanted that one and he wanted it now. That simple

Yeah, but don't forget: somebody else was almost as motivated as the purchaser. Somebody bid against him up to the final bid. It takes two to tango.

Wish I had that money.

That price is insane. IIRC that's more than twice what a member here paid for a pristine LNIB TL, more recently.

I'd mark it up to a deep pocket bidding war rather than an actual estimate of value.

Here's mine. Pretty dear, but not even close to 5 figures- and not the most I've paid for a gun.

Old tightwad me has yet to pay a thousand bucks for a firearm. It is a matter of priorities, lessons learned over a long life.

I participate on another forum where apparently a couple of frequent flyers have incomes to support purchases of thousands per week over sustained periods of time. I don't begrudge them, but I sometimes wonder if their astounding collections mean as much to them as my modest collection does to me. Working people learn not to lust after things that are beyond their abilities.

Wink Crazy bidding

I was one of the bidders for this gun back in 2013. I had traveled to RIAC to inspect the gun before bidding. The condition was near perfect 99+%. There was also a companion Second Model 44 Special Target that was equally near perfect. I handled both guns, BUT neglected to remove the stocks and look for rework dates, etc.

I was a bidder on the Triple Lock that sold for over $30K but dropped out in the high 20s. I subsequently bought the Second Model 44 Target for about $8K. When I got it home I removed the stocks and found the rework date from the 1950s. I called Rock Island and they bought it back for full refund except I ate shipping costs.

Lots of lessons learned on that fiasco and mistakes I haven't made again. I was told by an insider that a "Chinese guy" was the winning bidder on the Triple Lock.

Rock Island Auction tends to omit lots of important details. Which is why I don't bother with them.

I'll never know whether they knew the guns had been refinished or were simply too lazy to pull the stocks and see the dates. I don't buy from RIAC unless I've personally examined the gun.

I think I know of whom you speak. He also prowls the high end sellers on GB.

1. As I always say, there are people out there with money (I'm not one of them) who are willing to spend it on their toys.

2. Auctions are funny things. All it takes is two bidders with deep pockets to get into a pissing contest and the price can go sky high.

I did find it peculiar a couple of months back they listed a 38/44 Outdoorsman with a king cockeyed hammer as a heavy duty and no mention of the hammer.

I do consider buying from them but I always talk with someone on the floor with the gun I am interested in,in hand. They likely will get a lot of questions from me that I have pre written down but they do indulge me and are very polite. I seem not to win often on RIA but come in second many times to someone thats bidding onsite.

You're assuming people with unlimited funds have the common sense attitude that would cause them to spend that money sensibly.

Obviously some don't.

Keep in mind too, that some very wealthy people have egos to match their bank accounts, and some of that, "No one beats me." attitude may contribute here.

Not hardly think about this

I bought a nice model 37 S&W a few months ago for $300

A pound of Black Ivory coffee cost $500 and rich people drink it

Platinum is worth about $27 a gram and last forever

Beluga Caviar cost $35 a gram and rich people eat it

Gold is about $1770 per troy oz right now and last forever

Da Hong Pao Tea cost $1400 a GRAM and rich people drink it

1 Carat blue diamonds are about $3500 and last forever

Remy Martin Louis XIII Cognac (750ml bottle) $3500 and rich people drink it.

What many people think of as serious money, is like the change in your pocket to a real rich person.

For the super rich, it's like going to the fair and spending way too much on a funnel cake. It's a bad deal, sure, but it just doesn't register as significant.

The buy the gun not the story line is about guns that have zero proof regarding the story attached to it.

Actual provenance is valuable, very, very valuable.

Guess so, but my interest is more in the piece, rather than who owned it before me. In other words, I'm not interested in paying more for prior ownership.

E.g. the gun I posted above- It was originally owned by a bullseye shooter and used in some championship or another- got a lot of paper with it. Okayyyyyy, maybe that will help if I sell it. But the really neat thing is that same bullseye shooter sent the gun back to the factory for a superb trigger job- NOW THAT'S REALLY COOL!

YMMV.

I paid 6 figures for my Triple Lock but 2 of the figures were to the right of the decimal point.

It is not just triple locks. A 25-5 just sold on GoingBroker for $5025. It is an excellent specimen but for crying out loud $5k!!
