Rock Island Auction Company Firearms Auction

Online Auction

November 1, 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.

Our customers SAY...

I am writing this review about Rock Island Auction because I feel it could be helpful to families that are left gun collections by their loved ones. They put my father's guns in their Premier auctions, and their Regional auctions and they sold like wildfire. A lot of my father's Colts and Winchesters went far above their high estimate. We are so happy with this company I just can't express my gratitude in words. They completely understood this emotional journey we went on together to sell my dad's 50 year old collection. It was very sentimental, and it did turn out to be an amazing experience. My dad has since passed away. He was so pleased at the end of his life that his lifelong collection went to people that loved the guns like he did. I must say Pat Hogan and his son Kevin are a class act, we received top dollar for his collection. I spoke to Jessica Tanghe all the time and her kindness and understanding helped me through this process. If I were to rate this company on a scale of 1 to 100 I would give them 100. D. K.
