Rock Island Auction Company Firearms Auction

Regional Auction

June 20 to June 23, 2019

Our Regional auctions are made up of affordable antiques, beginning collector’s items, usable sporting arms, and many non-firearm lots. A majority of the lots have multiple firearms. A Regional Auction has routinely consisted of approximately 4,000 lots with as many as 10,000 firearms in those lots. We hold two Regional Auctions per year, one in the summer and one in the winter. The concept of the Regional Sale was initiated by the demand that our customers developed for the “everyday collector” type guns. If these guns were placed in a Premier Auction, they would simply be overshadowed. These guns need to be seen in person as we keep the description to a minimum and use a rating scale for the condition encouraging the buyer to view the items in person. We produce thousands and thousands of black and white catalogs that are sent to potential bidders all over the world.

These auctions are comprised of firearms such as sporting and hunting firearms, manufacturers such Browning, Winchester, Ruger, Colt, Remington, Smith & Wesson, plus Japanese and European military firearms. You will also find firearm related books, holsters, swords, parts, leather, ammunition and more. This is also an auction for antique and highly collectible items. Each item is listed with a headline, high and low estimates, condition rating, and photo. As with our Premier Auctions, our website features the entire Regional 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. My father had been collecting Colts and Winchesters for over 50 years. My father told me that it was time to start selling his gun collection he was 85. I contacted many of the prominent auction houses that sell gun collections and I was not satisfied. I felt they didn't understand that it was really an emotional process. Then one day I contacted Christie's auction house. They told me the top auction house in the United States for firearms would be Rock Island Auction, I called them immediately and they set up a time to come over and see my father's collection. I was so impressed with Kevin Hogan and Rick Henley that after they left I immediately told my husband that those are the people that I want to have sell my dad's precious collection. D.K.
