That is what you call a collector's item. :wow:

I wonder how many more times it will be bid on?

The last 15 minutes resets everytime a new bid is submitted.

Sanford had one hell of a collection. They have been selling it off for years now.

I bought this Korth from his estate in 2008.

I remember saying I have more non-1911s that I won't shoot than I do 1911s. Well, this is one of them.

Its a mint, never fired, 1976 Korth Combat 357mag. Its one of the finest pieces of machinery I've ever handled and certainly one of the nicest handguns I own, bar none.

I'm not even a revolver guy and that thing is beautiful. The proportions are just perfect and it looks like it fits together like a Swiss watch.

Korth still builds them and imports through Korth USA.

New Korth Combats revolvers run anywhere from $6K-$8K and up. Its nuts.


Even rough 38 special Korths (not the Combat model) sell for 2-3K on Gunbroker. :wow:

I think its beautiful the more I look at it. It brought over $23K. :shocked:

That was a hard core collector's piece. Someone paid $24K just to mount it on a wall or stick it in a safe. :shocked:

Hang it on the wall? Put it in a safe?? Screw that- I'd shoot the piss out of it, with Wolf steel-case and the hottest +p .45 ammo that I could find!

Just think- if that model had won the trials and beat out the Colt 1911...would it have the following that 1911's do today? And would there only be about a dozen or so "leftover from the trials" 1911's selling for $24,000? :wow:

Yeah, you never know.

It was definitely a decisive moment in the history of handguns.

Nice Korth, Brian. It doesn't even look like the cylinder has been rotated.

I've always liked Korth, I just haven't been able to rationalize the price of admission (yet).

As cool as that savage is, I'm glad they picked the Colt if you know what I mean.

I sure would like to have that, though- the Savage, that is. Authentic turn-of-the-century old world technology right there. You could definitely say that they don't make guns like that anymore.

The Savage is bad-ass. I have one, a 1917 model, in 32ACP.

Yeah, I think the Colt 1911 is cooler, but the Savage is really cool in it's own catagory.

http://pics.gunbroker.com/GB/177214000/177214492/pix1790782468.jpg

It's like a puzzle the way they come apart. You pull back the slide, lock it back with the safety, twist the rear of they slidecounterclockwise about 90 degrees and it pulls out of the rear. Then you just release the slide lock and the front of the slide comes off under spring pressure. MUCH easier to field strip than the 1911 (Not that the 1911 is hard to break down, but the Savage is super easy.)and less parts.

Btw, you notice there is only one screw on that baby? That's old-world master machining.

Compared to the trigger on a 1911, the Savage trigger sucks, though.

I would love to have that Savage!
