Colt Revolver Reportedly Owned by Brigham Young Going Up for Auction


According to the auction company, the revolver has a personal inscription to Brigham Young and was given to him by what was then the largest firearms dealer in the wild west!

An Illinois auction house will sell a Colt revolver said to have belonged to former LDS Church president Brigham Young.

The gun, reportedly owned by one of Young’s direct descendants, is expected to go for between $550,000 and $850,000 at the auction, which runs April 29 through May 1.
