007 The Armoury has been a phenomenal success and received with tremendous enthusiasm. Unfortunately, the book also has a sad side; March 23rd 2023 is the 3rd anniversary of the theft of several original James Bond screen-used guns from the collection of John Reynolds, aka Donk.

Inside the book is the wanted poster you see below.

About the burglary

In the evening of March 23rd 2020, a gang broke into a North London property in an attempt to steal the keys to an Aston Martin as used by Daniel Craig in Casino Royale which was parked in the front drive. While turning the property over looking for the car’s keys, they came upon five cased decommissioned firearms belonging to collector and author Mark Hazard, destined for permanent exhibition at The Royal Armouries in Leeds. They stole all five weapons.

The guns include a unique 44 Magnum handgun wielded by Roger Moore as James Bond in Live and Let Die, a Walther PPK used in A View to Kill, a Beretta Cheetah and a Beretta Tomcat pistol used by Halle Berry as Jinx in Die Another Day and a small Llama XVIII Especial pistol also featured in Die Another Day.

Despite coverage of the theft in the international media only the frame of the Llama XVIII Especial has been recovered.

Mark Hazard and Spy Guy Productions Ltd would like to take the opportunity on this the third anniversary of the theft, to offer a £10,000 / $12,000 reward for information leading to the recovery of the stolen weapons. If you have any information regarding the weapons, contact your local Law Enforcement establishment to claim the bounty or send a message via Spy Guy Productions website.
