  • Rock Island Auction Company has been solely owned and operated by Patrick Hogan. This company was conceived on the idea that both the sellers and buyers should be completely informed and provided a professional venue for a true auction. After working with two other auction companies, Mr. Hogan began Rock Island Auction in 1993. Rock Island Auction Company has grown to be one of the top firearms auction houses in the nation. Under Mr. Hogan’s guidance the company has experienced growth each and every year; and he is the first to say it is his staff’s hard work and determination that have yielded such results.


    How can a company’s reputation be judged for integrity and fair dealings? We believe reputation and results are the true test.

    * In 2004, RIA brought nearly 15 million, and in 2005, nearly 16 million, and in 2006 over 19 million making them the highest grossing auction house in the world for firearms 3 years running.
    * Rock Island Auction Company routinely sells over 60% and as high as 68% of its auction lots to bidders who are absentee - that’s trust!
    * Rock Island Auction Company does not play games, we conduct auctions. In our last auction 97.4% of the items sold!
    * In the last four years Rock Island Auction Company has sold no less than 97% of the lots brought to the auction block.

    If you want the widest array of potential buyers to bid on your single item or your entire collection allow Rock Island Auction Company to market it through our auction services. We can be trusted to obtain results ­ just look at our record.
