At the Sig­na­ture Arms & Ar­mor Auc­tion held by the Her­itage auc­tion in Dal­las, a rare 1836 Colt re­volver went un­der the ham­mer and fetched a stag­ger­ing $977,500 as the win­ning bid, set­ting a world record for a sin­gle firearm sold at an auc­tion. The gun, with its nine-inch bar­rel and load­ing lever, is said to be the finest sur­viv­ing ex­am­ple of Samuel Colt’s first re­volver, pro­duced in Pater­son, New Jersey. The Colt forms part of the Al Cali Col­lec­tion, which in­cludes more than two dozen Colts.
