Online Auction

November 3, 2016

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.

Our customers SAY...

Dear Mr. Hogan, Thank you for the April/May 2010 Premiere Firearms Auction catalog. I usually review your auctions online but prefer to have a catalog in hand. I have purchased five firearms from Rock Island Auctions over the years and am very happy with all of the transactions. Additionally, I am now a duly licensed "Collector of Curios and Relics" holding the proper ATF License. This will facilitate my future purchases as firearms manufactured during the appropriate periods that can be shipped directly to me instead of to my local gun club. I continue to collect and have acquired my most recent acquisitions from various gun shows and other markets. My field of interest has become more sharply defined. I look forward to many more years as a happy bidder and customer of Rock Island Auctions. Additionally, I wish to mention that every single individual I have had contact with at your firm has been excellent. My experience has been superb!! Looking forward to future auctions and future catalogs. Sincerely,
