World’s Most Expensive Shotguns
.The shotgun is a flexible weapon, with uses ranging from sporting to military applications. To shotgun aficionados, however, only the best matter—and “best” takes on a particular meaning in the world of shotguns.
A “best gun” is a double-barreled shotgun made with all the care and precision of a work of art. The cream of the crop is the London best—a shotgun made by premier gun makers of London such as Boss & Co., Holland & Holland or J. Purdey & Sons.
In 2008, Christie’s held their Exceptional and Fine Sporting Guns and Rifles sale in London. The highlight of the event was a pair of gold-inlaid 12-bore shotguns by J. Purdey & Sons. Gunsmith Ken Hunt was inspired by the Royal Armouries in the Tower of London. These shotguns are particularly notable for the profusion of gold used in their making and are displayed in an exquisite oak and leather case.
Valued at $320,000 to $400,000, it’s safe to say these fantastic firearms are the most expensive shotguns in the world.

Most Expensive Bullets
Bullet Forge (http://www.bulletforge.com/index.php), an online retailer of custom bullets, may be offering the most expensive bullet in the world.
The retailer sells gold bullets, platinum bullets and, of course, a whole lot of silver bullets. Their premier offering, however, is this 45 ACP hollow-point made of 14-karat white gold. Mounted within the hollow-point are ninety diamonds surrounding a sparkling amethyst. Like all of Bullet Forge’s custom bullets, this beauty is inert—it can’t be fired. However, it does feature a loop attached to the base so it can be worn on a necklace.

Bullet Forge also offers a 9mm, again made from 14-karat white gold, with only diamonds mounted in the hollow-point.
Both of these expensive bullets sell for “about $3000” although, as customs, the price varies depending on the materials used. Unfortunately, Bullet Forge isn’t currently accepting online orders—they’re too busy filling backorders and protecting their intellectual property.63526353

World’s Most Expensive Rifles

Rifles—firearms with helical grooves carved into the barrel to impart greater range and accuracy—have been in military use since the Seven Years War in Europe. While originally used only by sharpshooters and hunters, today’s rifles are the standard arms of the modern infantryman. Of course, none of them get to carry the most expensive rifle in the world.

The gun is a product of Viggo Olsson, the Swedish gunsmith who founded VO Vapen in 1977. Called the H.H. Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan Mosque Rifle, it was created as a tribute to its namesake building in Abu Dhabi. The rifle was modeled after the mosque’s impressive chandelier and features gold inlays and thirty-six diamonds of various colors. The exclusive rifle is valued at $825,000. Olssen has also produced 100 Royal Collection United Arab Emirates Edition rifles priced at a somewhat more modest $525,000.
Of course, there are some rifles whose historical importance renders them priceless. One example of such is the Carcano rifle used to assassinate John F. Kennedy, which is currently in the hands of the National Archives and Records Administration in Maryland.6355

Most Expensive Handgun

The Luger, more correctly known as the Parabellum-Pistole, is a semi-automatic pistol design patented by Georg Luger in 1898 and manufactured by DWM (Deutsche Waffen- und Munitionsfabriken Aktien-Gesellschaft) in 1900. Originally designed for 7.65x22mm Parabellum cartridges, US Army trials in 1906 demanded a semi-automatic pistol with a larger caliber. DWM’s submission, a Luger adapted to .45 ACP rounds, has since become the most expensive handgun in the world.
The .45 ACP (Automatic Colt Pistol) cartridge, one of the most successful cartridges ever, was designed only a year earlier by American firearms designer John Browning. It has been used in a wide variety of firearms since, owing part of its success to the fact that it isn’t prone to over penetration and is, therefore, less likely to injure anyone standing behind the original target. Additionally, due to its inherent subsonic nature when firedfrom handguns or short-barreled submachine guns, it is one of the most powerful pistol calibers able to be suppressed.
Of the two .45 ACP Lugers submitted to the US Army, only one, marked serial number 2, is known to have survived. Serial number 1 is assumed to have been discarded, possibly damaged after the initial trial. For unknown reasons, DWM withdrew from the trials after the first round of tests. At least three more of the .45 ACP Lugers were made, one a carbine bearing serial number 21.
Most recently, the world’s most expensive handguns have been valued in excess of $1 million.

The military surplus 6.5 mm Carcano from the First World War with a useless scope was bought on mail order for a sum o USD 18/- including shipping and handling.
Any experienced rifleman can see that Lee Harvey Oswald had a useless rifle and was a "Fall Guy". The planners could have given him a better weapon, but they wanted it to be known; discretely, that the real snipers were other than Lee Harvey

@Faisji
This is a very well discussed topic. You can see the picture of the rifle and scope yourself as posted on the forum. You are right Lee Harvey was a marks man ( a shade above standard shot ) but not a sharp shooter leave alone a sniper. By the way armies grade their shooters in similar orders or grades.
The best Rifles were available cheaply in the US like the Brownings, Remingtons and Winchesters in 1963 why a First World War surplus Italian Carcano in 6.5 Caliber? The Scope is miserable to say the least.
Leupolds, Redfields and Weaver scopes were available, why a useless scope?

Sir, this is NOTHING, I remember seeing a MASTERPIECE about twenty years ago in the US. It was a Heckler & Koch MP5 with the lower, front forearm, and rear stock made of pure Ivory and the gun was gem encrusted with emeralds and Rubys along with diamonds and big ones. It also had gold trim on it. I believe it belonged to the Shah of Iran. This masterpiece was also written about in a book. I will try to dig up some old magazines and find the book's name. This is better and rarer than any rifle which seems to pop up every decade or so.

shah iran had the gun with ivory, emeralds, rubies, diamonds and gold. saddam of iraq had golden AK 47, AK 74 and dargonovs which are shown in the hands of victorious soldiers proudly posing with them, arab royals are also said to possess piles of precious guns of above description , gaddafi's pistol brandished after his capture and subsequent killing bore the golden plating and engraving . i wonder why all those precious golden and diamond guns failed to protect their owners from the persons holding ordinary steel guns :confused:

they do take money for the hand made status of their products...they are indeed some of the worlds best firearm producers....both in hunting rifles and shotguns but the icing on the cake of their price tag is the fact that they have the patronage of the royal house hold of windsor....im certain that other more redundant royal families of europe have also given such patronage to german and nordic manufacturers.....any information on these???

The Technology is missing. The best have been educated by some of our friends but the metallurgy, the artists who first make paintings of the engraving and its theme are not there. I salute them for making such good imitations at 1/100th the price. If only the Government sets up or privides metal for barrels ( these can be imported ) and action blanks for the craftsmen to work on they can do much better and then these guns should be proved and marked by POF.
They must proudly write made in Darra Adam khel by Mistri so and so.
I had a rifle made on a German Mauser Action with a Machine gun barrel trimmed and a beautiful walnut stock made by Mistri
Aseel Khan and Told him to write that made for so and so by mistri Aseel Khan. He put his Heart and soul in it.
