DESCRIPTION

This historic firearm was sold by us several years ago, and previously appeared on an episode of "American Gun" on Discovery channel. It is the screen-used Luger that appeared in Howard Hughes' iconic film "Hell's Angels" in 1930, which Hughes directed. The pistol was used in the final scene of the Hollywood blockbuster.  It was owned by Hell's Angels screenwriter Joseph March, who received the Luger from Hughes as a gift. Written provenance accompanies the Luger. Included with this famous gun is a letter from the screenwriter's family, including the relative who sold it to a collector in 1992. The most compelling provenance is the movie itself. When you play back the scene frame-by-frame, you can easily make out the unique features of this gun, which is a rare "Scoop Toggle" luger manufactured in 1906 by DWM, in .30 caliber. Due to the model's unique grip safety, slender barrel, and scoop toggle, the gun can be made out in the film (had Hughes used a regular Luger, we would never be able to identify the model gun by looking at the film). The gun is in outstanding condition. For a clip from the Discover Channel show, visit this link: Checkout this video from Discovery Channel...
