The average price of a gun is between $600 to $1000, but there are those who insist on purchasing the most top-tier items possible. For those weapons, that price range seems like nickels…
If you collect guns, you probably have a fantasy list that you’d love to buy and are working your way towards owning. Buying a luxury priced gun that’s very expensive is out reach for most people’s income. It’s nice to dream about though, right? Winning the lottery could be right around the corner. Then you can pretty much buy whatever firearms you wanted! Keep in mind, the priciest gun on this list costs more than what the average person makes in a year of work.
Let’s look at the highest priced guns you can purchase on the market today in a couple of pistols, a rifle, and a shotgun.
Colt’s Custom Carry Limited 9mm
The Colt Custom Carry Limited 9mm is not crazy expensive at $2,600, but it’s still higher than the average cost of a pistol. It’s built by their Custom Shop Master Gunsmiths with serious attention to detail. The corrosion-resistant finish is sharp and meant to last. This model also comes in a .45 ACP. At least this one is a slightly more realistic buy especially if you got a nice tax return this year. Treat yourself. Or, at least try to talk your wife into letting you…
The Cabot Apocalypse
The Cabot Apocalypse has a base price of $8,000. This is a high-tech pistol that has a deeply etched Damascus slide with a unique pattern that is customized for each gun made. The lead time on getting this weapon is 18-24 months, because they are just that popular from this gun company.
A Cool Hunting Rifle: Dakota Arms Model 97 Outfitter
This is a great hunting rifle that is lightweight and powerful. The Dakota Arms Model 97 Outfitter goes for around $5,500, although the price varies a little bit based on the customization options you choose. It goes way up in price from there. The “Special Select” wood option will add $2,000 to the price, and the “Fleur de Lis w/Ribbons” adds another $1,000. You can pick the wood grade, engraving, and even the material finish along with a slew of other features. The one we built for fun on the website ended up being $13,000.
An Amazing Shotgun: The Beretta Imperiale Monte Carlo Shotgun
This is a shotgun that’s a pure work of art. Plus, it costs as much as a small house or super luxury automobile. The Beretta Imperiale Monte Carlo Shotgun will set you back a whopping $100,000. It’s made of a special steel and a high quality walnut briar wood. The engraving and customizations on this model are stunningly beautiful and inlaid with gold. Having this firearm in your collection would be a great achievement that you would naturally pass down to your sons and grandsons.
