An SD Studios replica of the golden gun from classic Bond film The Man with the Golden Gun is to auction at Bonhams.

The Golden Gun replica bears Roger Moore's signature 

It's assembled from various scavenged parts, including a Colibri lighter and a cigarette case, and is numbered 199 of an edition of 7,500.

Ultimately only around 600-700 pieces were made, which generally sell for around $3,000.

The value of the present example is dramatically increased by the addition of a signature from Roger Moore.

Natalie Downing, Bonhams' entertainment memorabilia specialist, commented: "Memorabilia with a connection to the nation's favourite secret agent, James Bond 007, always garners strong interest from bidders at Bonhams.

"Replicas - provided they are of high quality - can sell for excellent prices, the SD studios replica gun from the film The Man with the Golden Gun being a perfect example, with the added kudos of Sir Roger Moore's signature making this piece highly collectable."

Prop guns associated with the series regularly achieve huge sums at auction, with an air pistol depicted in promotional materials for From Russia with Love (1963) selling for �277,250 ($428,101) in London in 2010.
