I am a member, and have bidded. No wins yet. They are a well organized company. They have excellent online help. A friend who has won a few says that he watches for an item that he wants in a lot, tries to buy the lot, and then sell the ones that he don't want. Buying anything is kind of pricey. You have to read the small print for their fees, and how to set up a proxy bid if you want one. I bidded on a S&W NIB condition, bidded $950, gun sold for $1,700 and change. They are set-up to take care of shipping of your items, and it is reasonable. You can go to their website and read all the rules. If you are a registered bidder, they send you the catalogs and someone from Rock Island usually calls to let you know when the auctions are to give you a heads up. I hope that this has been helpful.
