WILLOUGHBY, Ohio – Sometimes lightning does strike twice in the same place. As the days grew closer to Milestone’s March 11-12 Premier Collectible Firearms Auction, company co-owner Miles King felt increasingly certain that the sale’s top entries might achieve the same sort of estimate-defying prices as those paid at the March 2022 edition of their Premier sale. His hunch was right on the money. The high-powered lineup of antique, military, sporting and civilian arms with a timeline spanning the Civil War through Vietnam era attracted a gung-ho field of bidders and closed the books at a hefty $2.5 million – exactly what Milestone’s March Premier sale had grossed one year ago. All prices quoted in this report include the buyer’s premium.

CHEYENNE, Wyo. – Wyoming’s capital city, Cheyenne, has been known as the “Magic City of the Plains” practically since its establishment in 1867, when it officially became part of the Dakota Territory. Its status as a railroad town and military encampment only added to its allure, attracting cowboys, ranchers, outlaws and others seeking adventure and wide-open skies. That Old West atmosphere can still be felt in Cheyenne, and never more so than when New Frontier hosts its annual Cheyenne Firearms & Western Collectibles Auction, next slated for August 28.
The 391-lot auction of firearms, and both historical and modern Western antiques and art will be conducted in tandem with the promoter’s August 27-29 Cheyenne Firearms & Western Collectibles Show at the Laramie County Event Center at Archer. Bidders can take part in the auction either at the event itself or live online through LiveAuctioneers.
