The different auction types


Classic Auction

The classic auctions are the heart of our auctions. They are focused on high-quality premium weapons. Here you will find the highlights from all areas of weapons, whether hunting, sport or ordnance. In addition we will offer highly interesting rarities for collectors from the field of militia as well as antique weapons. All interested parties are warmly invited to place their bids directly on site within the presence auction by a show of hands. Bidding live is also possible online or by telephone after prior registration. Pre-bids can be submitted online via our auction platform or in written form with our bid-form by letter, fax or e-mail.


Online Auction

In the online auction, the lots are auctioned exclusively on our auction platform. Here we offer our worldwide audience exciting and attractive lots from the field of hunting, and sports as well as militia and equipment. You can bid from the moment of publication and optionally enter a maximum bid. The system automatically increases in appropriate bidding steps up to your selected maximum. If you are outbid, you will automatically receive a notification. The valid status of the bids is always displayed online. The exact expiration times of the individual lots are already displayed at the time of publication. However, if a new highest bid is submitted in the last minute before expiration, this will be extended again by one minute. Exciting until the last second to get the coveted pieces at auction.


Silent Auction

The Silent Auction offers you a wide range of weapons, equipment and collectibles at very favorable conditions. Here the special feature comes into play, meaning that the bids of all bidders are hidden. The auction itself ends with all lots at a certain time - until then bids can be considered. You can only place your bid per lot, but there are no predefined bidding steps - every euro counts. Bids can be submitted online via our auction platform or in written form on our bid-form by letter, fax and e-mail. In the event of a tie, the bid received earlier will prevail.



For all our auctions, we set up a display of the respective lots in our over 1,000 m2 auction hall. You can use this to get an idea of the special pieces on the spot. We will be happy to advise you personally. In addition, we are of course available to you by telephone, e-mail or WhatsApp - a video call is also possible.


As part of the auction preparation, we report on our highlights and special lots in the social media on an ongoing basis.
