This item was Lot 61 in Christies 14th February 2001 auction. The gun comes with original sale tag attached. According to the vendor at the time, this gun is one of only five rubber stunt guns made for the stealth boat scenes in the film.

Having been associated with the Walther PPK since the first Bond film Dr. No, thirty-five years later, in Tomorrow Never Dies, Bond changes his gun for a new model, the Walther P99, given to him by Red Chinese agent, Wai Lin (Michelle Yeoh).
