If you have never had an opportunity to attend one of RIAC’s Premier Auctions, you still have at least one item that should be on your bucket list. Even if you do not have the extra MONEY to spend on one of these treasures, experiencing the auction hall is a cross between a tour of a museum and a treasure hunt. There could be historic weapons from famous, nay infamous gunfighters—pieces of history with unknown stories that would singe the hair from the back of your neck and curl your toes at the same time.
Most of all, the auction offers magnificent firearms for the investor, collector and enthusiast. Highlights will include a U.S. Government Martial Henry rifle, and a London Armoury Company Kerr Double Action Percussion Revolver (serial number ONE!). There will be three pistols once owned by M. Bertrand “Frisco Bert” Couch and for those looking for something a bit more modern, four, consecutively numbered, Kimber rifles of varying calibers with optics.
Theses wonderful examples and so many more will be sold on April 19, 20 and 21, 2013. Think the notice is too short? Nonsense; RIAC accepts live bids, proxy bids, and bids via phone or fax.
