This is a piece of Hollywood memorabilia with a big bang.

Die-hard James Bond fans will get a chance to battle it out for one of his most prized possessions.

The famed Walther PP pistol Sean Connery wielded in his first 007 film, “Dr. No,” is up for grabs, alongside nearly 600 items from films such as “Pulp Fiction,” “Terminator 2: Judgement Day” and “True Grit.”

The deactivated prop from the 1962 film is the highlight of Julien’s upcoming “Icons and Idols” auction, taking place on Dec. 3 at its flagship Beverly Hills, Ca. venue.

The weaponry, which Connery used throughout the film, is estimated to fetch up to $200,000.

“The silhouette of 007 holding this gun would go on to become the James Bond franchise’s most iconic image and one of the most recognizable pop culture references of all time,” Julien’s executive director Martin Nolan commented.

Connery died in the Bahamas on Oct. 31, 2020, at the age of 90.
