|Elvis Presley's revolver is up for sale for $95,000.
The late music legend - who died in 1977 aged 42 - purchased the .38 caliber Smith & Wesson Chief Special gun from a shop in Memphis in 1971, and it is being sold by vintage
memorabilia company Moments in Time.
According to TMZ, the King of Rock 'n' Roll's weapon is available on a first come, first served basis.
The paperwork for Elvis' gun purchase shows he also forked out for four other firearms on the same day.
The revolver features the 'Hound Dog' hitmaker's logo TCB, which means Taking Care of Business, and is placed over a lightning bolt symbol to mean Taking Care of Business in a
TCB was also the name of Elvis' band who played alongside him from 1969 up until his death in 1977.
Elvis' iconic Wm Knabe & Co piano, known as the Elvis White Piano, was recently put up for auction.
The instrument was built in 1912 and installed in the Music Room at the late rock 'n' roll icon's Graceland mansion for 12 years between 1957 and 1969.
Earlier this year, a lock of Elvis' hair sold for more than £1,000 after the tresses were saved by the singer's personal barber, Homer Gill Gilleland.
In 2016, the 'Jailhouse Rock' hitmaker's 1969 Custom Gibson Ebony Dove guitar - which he played on stage for four years between 1971 and 1975 - sold for £185,000, despite
being expected to fetch up to £206,000.
Elvis gave the instrument to fan Mike Harris during a show in 1975.
Mike recently said: "He struck a couple of licks on it, and then he just came to the edge of the stage and held it out by the neck.
"He said, 'This is yours. Hold on to that. Hopefully it'll be valuable one day.' "
