Vintage Fine Arms has been trading for 25 years buying and selling antique arms to clients in the UK and throughout the world. For years we have been valuing items for sale, probate and insurance so it seems a logical move forward to provide an on-line auction platform for clients wishing to sell on items from their collections or simply to break up as a whole collection and sell on.

The aim is to provide a very cost effective way to sell. We will provide access to bidding from not just the UK but the world with auctions varying from live and timed. We provide minimal vendors charges with no lotting or hidden fees. A shipping service can be provided for single items or collections.
