Call Rock Island Auction. Sounds like he has enough things that they would come and get them, handle the whole transaction for you. They are a Class 3 dealer, so the full autos are no problem. I think they are having an on-line auction about now. They have always been fair and honest with my buddy, who is starting to thin the herd -at 89!

time line you listed is only relevant if the buyer is in the same state (Texas)
otherwise it will transfer out of state (form 4 to a dealer) that will take likely 45-60 days,
I have picked up a few MG's from estates in the past few years, and most have only taken 30 days,
thing to think about on the M@HB is who made it and how is it papered

My dream gun is a MA Deuce mount in the back of my pick up truck.
I would auction them off, Amoskeag asks 20% unless the collection is impressive enough and sometimes the fee is diminished or, waived.
Rock Island was recommended to me by Herb Glass via a friend.
Unfortunately James Julia has changed hands
(Morphy’s) with some reported issues.
Direct sale to a dealer would be my last resort.This message has been edited. Last edited by: BillyBonesNY,

all around good guy!
Collectors Firearms in Houston will buy the entire lot in one fell swoop I am sure.
They deal in class 3 now too.
Jackson Armory in Dallas would do the same I am sure too.
I am a board member for the Garand Collectors association. Would be happy to put you in touch with someone. Email me.

Or in a machine gun nest on my roof.
NO, REALLY. GET OFF MA LAWN!
Respectfully, you are describing M1 carbines not Garands.[/QUOTE]
David, No offense taken as your point is important. I should have qualified in the title with a comma at least. Better if I would have added Carbine to separate from the Garand. He has multiples of both.
Risk the consequences of honesty...
Sounds like a valuable life long collection. He should do very well selling as the value of what he has, has risin incredibly high over the years. I know a local man who has 18 Garands in his collection. Multiples of carbines, 2 M2 Springfields including mine..sigh, his son will have his collection some day.
I worked for a well respected auction company years ago and would recommend going that route. For a collection such as your fathers I'm sure they would send someone to retrieve it. It is a good way to get rid of everything at once, get top dollar, and not have to deal with all of the hassle that goes along with selling. You will get a check that won't bounce, and interaction with buyers will be nil. To me, that's priceless.
