Love historic guns? Have an extra few thousand dollars kicking around? You’ll have a primo opportunity to indulge the former and relieve yourself of the later starting September 6 when the Rock Island Auction Company kicks off its firearms auction.

Among the gems up for sale is the very first “One of One Thousand” Winchester Model 1876 produced. It is expected to go for at least $250,000. A fancy gold-plated, factory engraved Henry lever-action should command a similar price tag.

You can view some of the goodies here.
