The 5 Most Expensive Firearms in RIA’s September Auction
For three days in September, thousands of the rarest and strangest firearms available to collectors were up for grabs by the Rock Island Auction (RIA) company in Illinois. The myriad collection of Colt revolvers, finely engraved Winchester rifles, tiny derringers, and other historical antiques or curiosities raked in $11.6 million in sales. Amid it all, five particular firearms managed to steal the show.
“Two sayings come to mind after Rock Island Auction Company’s September 2014 Premiere Firearms Auction: ‘The best never goes out of style,’ and ‘What’s old is new again,’” stated RIA in a press release on Wednesday.
Of course, what’s old is also expensive. How much would you pay for a prototype Luger, silver-inlaid Westley Richards shotgun, or a captured World War II German paratrooper rifle? Well, if you were a serious collector, somewhere well into six figures.
