American gangster Al Capone`s gun to be auctioned

London: A revolver belonging to American gangster Al Capone has been put up for sale in an online auction and could fetch up to 70,000 pounds ($115,000).

The Chicago gangster specially ordered the Colt .38 revolver in May 1929 to murder seven rivals, the Daily Express reported.

The gun comes with a letter signed by his sister-in-law confirming its authenticity, the report said.

Capone - nicknamed `Scarface` - dominated the mafia in Chicago until his arrest in 1931. He died in 1947.
