Our Assessment:  If you’ve been following our auctions for the past year and a half you should be very familiar with the Claridge collection as we have been personally auctioning directly for the Claridges themselves.  If not, these Claridge firearms were made famous in movies like Planet of the Apes featuring Mark Wahlberg, Total Recall featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Against the Law, Iron Man 2, Firefly, Direct Hit, Assassins featuring Sylvester Stallone and Antonio Banderas, and Once Upon a Time in Mexico featuring Banderas. These guns have been held by some of the biggest names in Hollywood, and now they can be yours.

BUT, this consecutive serialized set has a pretty significant twist.  Both of these pistols are the ONLY two Alloy framed S-9’s ever made.  Not only are we almost dry on the very last of the Claridge collection, the Claridge’s have decided now is a good time to release this unique pair to auction.  These pistols are mint.  New in Box.  Never Fired.  And are truly one of a kind.  The most rare of all the Claridge pistols.  Period.

These Claridge firearms will soon have their very own display here at the Cody Firearms Museum at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West, making these not only Museum Grade, but more rare than what one of the biggest Firearm Museums in the world will have in possession.

So if you’re looking to take your collection to the next level, if you want to own a piece of movie history that could be right at home in the hands of Han Solo or Captain Kirk, then these Claridge Hi-Tec AS-9’s are an opportunity of a lifetime.    Please see details and happy bidding.
