Rock Island Auction Company Firearms Auction

Online Auction

March 23, 2017

Rock Island Auction Company continues to be an innovator within the firearms industry and is proud to offer an additional 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 material and are held 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.

Dear Mr. Hogan, Aside from being pleased with my success in obtaining two lots from Frank's collection, I wish to express my thanks to your staff in their assistance. I requested additional information on one the lots; which I purchased, thanks to this. Also, the young people taking the phone bids were clear and called to check my number well in advance. Billing and shipping were prompt and polite. And, you had a good sale to boot! Well done, Pat, good service and I am, once again, a happy customer; kudos all around!
