They just had this up for auction on Aug. 1st.



One of the Colt Walker pistols famously used by Clint Eastwood in the 1976 classic western The Outlaw Josey Wales is among a staggering 1,000 original movie props being put up for auction on the Internet.

What do you make of that paloka?

Josey Wales Pistol

No way to tell what the results were???? :-\

If it was true, which I doubt, I wouldn't have minded putting in a bid myself!  O0

It had a starting bid of $40000 and didn’t sell in the auction

Forty thousand dollars for a prop gun? For it to be worth that much, Clint would have to have been born clutching it in his teeth! ;D

This is one of 5 live fire pistols that were rented into Malpaso for OJW.

A very cool, iconic Clint item.

You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

So palooka live fire means what?  Are they prop guns that fire blanks or are they the real deal that fire blanks?  I know that the movie industry uses both...

This would have fired blanks on set. I am surprised that the auction description doesn't mention that its Clint's gun?

Here is a link to an article I wrote about the Colt that I own.  http://www.propstore.com/joseywalespistol.htm

What would the pistol be worth in your estimation?

The estimate is about right. I very much doubt it well sell with this auction though.

If I had the money to spare I would definitely like to buy something like that, although I can’t see it actually happening :)
