Rock Island Auction Company expects its February Regional Firearms Auction will be its biggest sale yet – and its first ever 4-day auction even. To be held Feb. 19-22, the auction on Friday, Saturday and Sunday will remain the same, but they are opening earlier at 8 a.m. CST on Thursday.
The auction will commence at 2 p.m. as they begin to sell all the collectible firearms, edged weapons, ammunition, military artifacts and uniforms, book, accessories, bronzes, and parts that buyers have come to expect from these auctions.
Collectors and shooters are both welcome at a sale that will have 5-figure historical Henry rifles next to the practical sporting, hunting, and defense arms. If you seek antiques, curio & relics, modern firearms, or military weapons from decades or even centuries past, the Regional sale will have something for you. There will be rare and beautiful firearms, Civil War weapon and artifacts, scarce Winchesters, low serial numbers, red hot Colt snake guns, trench shotguns, martially inspected arms, and so much more.
There are even pieces from well-received collections that have anchored Rock Island's Premiere Auctions: The William Baird Colt Collection and The Estate Collection of Donald Kotecki.
Hot on the heels of RIAC's successful 2014 total of $47.5 million in sales, they are looking to head into 2015 with a full head of steam by hosting a Regional sale that houses: in excess of 7,000 items in 3,600+ lots, including more than 700 Colts, over 600 Winchesters, 400+ Remingtons, and a bounty of more than 300 Smith & Wessons. There are over 1,000 sporting arms and nearly 1,500 military items, so be sure to start browsing our online catalog today.
