Rock Island Auction Company Firearms Auction

Online Auction

January 3, 2019

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 have recently participated in two auctions at Rock Island. In both, I was very pleased with the outcome of what I received. They have been courteous and respond to any questions or concerns. Everything has been flawless. From the start of the auction, until the end when your merchandise is shipped. I wanted to express my thanks again. I have no doubt that I will continue to support and participate with Rock Island Auction Company in the future. D.

Our customers SAY...

Casandra, I received my gun yesterday from my FFL contact and everything was perfect. I had never purchased a gun from an auction prior to this, but I am very pleased how well this transaction went. Everyone that I spoke with at RIAC was very professional and friendly. I will definitely consider RIAC for any of my future gun purchases. Thank you,

G.M.
