The Gunrunner Auction Series, Ltd. will be auctioning four Elvis Presley items their April 5 firearms auction. Until now very few of The King's guns have been released from Graceland, but April 5 is your chance to own the ultimate Elvis collector piece. For sale are :
Elvis Presley's a Remington Model 740, .280 cal. semi-auto rifle with scope (mfg. 1959) and personalized it with his initials "EP" in gold and "Thunderbolt mark" on the receiver as well as adding "TCB" ("Taking Care of Business") on both sides of the stock in gold.
On Dec. 2, 1970 Elvis visited a Palm Springs, CA. gun shop to purchase an Astra handgun and filled out this extensive Federal Firearms Form 4473 and signed it.
Elvis' Browning Auto-5 20 ga. shotgun which he bought in 1967 at the Southland Mall in Memphis at Sears.
Elvis frequently carried a pair of highly decorated .45 autos on his person (the originals can be seen at the Graceland Museum), so Colt Firearms and Elvis Presley Enterprises (Graceland) commissioned this highly gold engraved Colt .45 auto in only 300 editions.
