According to multiple reports, five guns that were used in “James Bond” films have been stolen from a house in north London.
According to the British police, the suspects have Eastern European accents and the stolen guns include the last weapon brandished by actor Roger Moore while playing 007.
The guns have an estimated worth of more than 100,000 pounds ($122,000) and were stolen on Monday night from the house in Enfield.
The stolen guns included a Beretta ‘Cheetah’ pistol which appeared in the “Die Another Day” film; a Beretta ‘Tomcat’ pistol with a laser/silencer attachment and a Llama 22 which were also used in that same film.
The others were a Walther PPK from “A View To A Kill” and a Revolver Smith and Weston 44 Magnum from “Live and Let Die”.
“Many of these items are irreplaceable,” said Detective Inspector Paul Ridley. “For example, the Magnum is the only one in the world ever made in which the whole gun is finished in chrome.
“The firearms stolen are very distinctive and bespoke to particular James Bond movies.
“They will almost certainly be recognised by the public and to anyone offered them for sale. Many of these items are irreplaceable.”
Owner John Reynolds said it felt like a “flame has gone out of my life”.
The guns formed part of a large collection which includes posters, items of clothing and about 60 other guns that engineer Mr Reynolds started 50 years ago.
The 56-year-old described it as “probably the finest collection of its type under one roof”.
