    Post Reference Thread - Rock Island Auction Company (September 6, 7, & 8, 2008)

    Reference thread for Rock Island Auction Company (click here) which took place September 6, 7, & 8, 2008.

    From their web site:

    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.

    Next Auction: DECEMBER 6th, 7th & 8th, 2008

    Featuring the massive Will Hoffeld Estate & Firearms Collection

    This collection is a study in the manufacturing of firearms, and more particularly - Colts. From Colt prototypes and Brevettes to the semi-automatics, this large collection is comprehensive. The shear number of rare examples is best described by stating the collection has Over a dozen Colt Patersons!
