Rock Island Auction Company is set to have their largest gun auction in the company’s history this month, at which they can outfit a whole division.

“Ever seen 10,000 guns set up before? Neither have we until now!” notes the auction house for their upcoming February 2017 Regional Firearms Auction, which has packed their preview hall to the gills. Up for grabs are sporting and hunting arms from Browning, Winchester, Ruger, Colt, Remington, Smith & Wesson, as well as military arms from Europe and Japan. The event, only the second 4-day sale in the company’s history, will run Feb. 16-19.

Henry expected to draw over $12K.
