Our Sporting & Collector Firearms Auctions are made up of affordable antiques, beginning collector’s items, usable sporting arms, and many non-firearm lots. Their origins lie in the demand for “everyday collector” guns. These exciting sales have grown continually in size over the years and can house more than 10,000 firearms.

Lot 272: Group of Fifteen Assorted Military Edged Weapons
Lot 231: Two Edged Weapons and one Honing Rod
Lot 263: Four Swords
Lot 252: Grouping of Civil War Commemorative Ribbons and Medals

Arms & Accessories Day Firearms Auction #2064

The newest of RIAC's auction formats, the A&A Day Auctions have skyrocketed in popularity since their introduction and are being scheduled with increasing frequency. Different from typical timed “online auctions,” these events utilize a live stream of our licensed auctioneers to conduct the auction. With the exception of a live audience and physical catalog, it is exactly like our other auctions.
