    To all HighRoad.org members I would like to offer a free 3 volume set of catalogs for our April Auction. These spiral bound catalogs have over 600 pages and over 6,000 color photos. One volume for each day of the auction, approximately 900 lots per volume. Normally we sell these catalogs for $60 per set. The printer had a huge over run and we want to get these extra catalogs in the hands of firearms collectors. After the auction you will be mailed a copy of the prices realized too!

    We do require you pay $10 for the ship charge (USA) and $25 (Non USA). In most cases we will ship to you FedEx.

    The link worked for me, and I actually placed an order. But I'm bothered by the way it worked, and would caution anyone thinking of doing the same. You are instructed to order a catalog, which is normally $60, and then enter a promo code. This is supposed to get it for $10. But once you place the order, you just get a "thank you." You do not get any kind of information, such as a receipt or invoice, on what it is you just ordered, or will be receiving. NOT NICE. I did get a confirmation email, but it is just generic, and says nothing about the special promotion. I will be watching my credit card charges carefully.

    Order Free Catalog

    I understand your concern...you will not be charged anymore than the $10 for the shipping. If you prefer to call and speak with a person and place the order that works too. Tell them the code ARTFA

    Enjoy

    These are a great resource for collectors and anyone interested in historical firearms.

    Getting one of the catalogues for just the shipping price is a good deal!

    Ohhh, I'm familiar with RIA and the pictures alone on their website can gobble up an otherwise productive afternoon. They do a very very nice job and the catalogue makes a great "coffee table" book to drool over.

    FYI...we are getting close to the end of the extra catalogs. If you want a set you better do it in the next day or two. Most likely by the weekend the free offer will be over.

    I just ordered a set. This is a super deal! The "catalogs" are much more then that. Buying reference books to cover the same information with quality photographs could easily run well over $100.00.... :what:

    Heads up, I didn't have an account on the auction site. Attempted to create one and order the catalog, told me the promo number was not correct. Called customer service and they fixed it. Thanks!

    Question: How do you propose they collect the $10.00 shipping/handling fee during what is going to be a very short time offer?

    Also I'm sure that with an account opened, they hope you might decide to bid on one or more lots.

    Anyway I'm sure that they will have no problem disposing of surplus catalogs at the offered price. If you question the honesty of those making the offer, use your favorite search engine with a search term, "Rock Island Auctions" Also notice they are advertising on THR.

    Ordered mine (by telephone) on Monday. Arrived today. Absolutely awesome. The best ten bucks I have spent in the last ten years.

    Hi Lex,

    What gives? You had to pay $10. She tried to get me to pay $10, I refused, BUT many on here said they got theirs for free.
    Maybe there's a 'secret handshake' we don't know about? Got to wonder about a company that only RANDOMLY charges.

    Guessing English isn't your first language, all you have to do is read the original post:

    Everyone is paying the $10 shipping and the catalogs are free, sorry you're having such a hard time understanding that.
