Rock Island Auction Company’s June Regional Auction will be offering four full days of guns. Nearly 10,000 firearms in over 4,300 lots pack each and every day. The June 22 – 25 sale will put thousands of collector firearms into the waiting hands of enthusiasts from coast to coast. There are numerous multi-gun lots allowing collectors to pick up several desired arms with a single bid with over 80% of the lots holding an estimate between $800-$1,500.
Leading the way for the sale are six Henry rifles, including an engraved example and another that was part of the U.S. Ordnance Department contract to arm the 1st District of Columbia Cavalry during the Civil War. These “damned Yankee rifles” are followed by a host of classic Winchester lever actions in any model a collector might desire. In fact, there are more Winchesters in this sale than any other manufacturer with nearly 750 to choose from.
Not far behind the lever guns are the Colts. Nearly 550 appear in this firearms auction and they run the gamut: rare longarms, black powder revolvers, early semi-autos, coveted snake guns, and of course, the vaunted Model 1911.
These are only the most popular two manufacturers of the hundreds present in this sale. Remington, Smith & Wesson, Springfield, Ruger, Marlin, Browning, Mauser, U.S. military arms, foreign military arms, Beretta, Walther, and so many more will all be present in abundance. There will be a full day preview on Wednesday, June 21 from 9:00a.m. – 6:00p.m. to inspect and hold in your hands any firearm in the auction.
