Rock Island Auction Company Firearms Auction

Online Auction

May 10, 2018

RIAC gun auctions continue to be the innovator within the firearms industry and is proud to offer an additional gun auction platform to sell your items.  Guns listed here for auction will be sold in the same way as our other auctions except there is no live bidding audience in our facility during the auction.  Bids are accepted absentee, telephone and live on the Internet during the day of the auction.  These auctions are comprised of a myriad of firearms and related items such as gun parts, books, scopes, knives, swords and more and are held at least three times a year.  Typically, items in our Online-Only auctions are placed there as they do not meet our minimum lot value to earn a spot in a Premiere or Regional sale.  Again, as with our Premiere Auctions, our website features the entire Online-Only Auction catalog of items and is searchable by model, serial number, manufacturer, lot number, keyword, and more. All items are viewable in color online and all guns have both sides shown.
