Reata Pass Auctions once again dazzles iCollector.com with an amazing firearms and collectibles auction. This auction brings over 1000 lots up for grabs to the highest bidder in a fast paced and exciting auction environment. In addition to a highly sought after collection of firearms, is a major art collection and a major rug collection. Also, there will be up for auction fine jewelry, mounts, knives and edged weapons, tobacco memorabilia, and coins.
The very first lot of the auction sets the stage with a great piece. Up for grabs here is a Widley WM-456 .45 Cal firearm. This is a stainless steel gas-operated double action pistol that is semi automatic with a 6” vent rib barrel. Also there is an adjustable rear sight, plastic grips, one magazine, and a soft case with documents. The grips are in pristine condition and the over all condition of this firearm is excellent. Well worth bidding on and it is estimated to sell between $1200 and $1800.
Reata Pass always brings great Winchester rilfes to auction. Lot 123 is a Model 70 XtR .300 Win Magnum. This Model 70 XtR is a Sporter Magnum 50th Anniversary Edition and carries a special serial number. This features a 24” engraved tapered barrel, a hooded ramp front sight, a ramped rear folding leaf sight, and a blued engraved receiver partially turning plum. The finish on the rifle shows little to no wear and includes the original factory cardboard box with tissue paper and documents. This really is like new in the box. Also, this is a great value piece with an opening bid of only $400 and is sure to sell with brisk bidding.
The auction has many beautiful pieces of artwork up for auction that are ready to display in any home or office. Lot 700 on the 2nd day of the auction is one of the best in the entire sale. Here is an oil on canvas by highly noted New Mexico Taos artist Emil Bistramm which measures 36” by 27”, and is signed in the lower right hand corner. This painting is a world class piece of work and reflects the extensive and honored career of the artist. A comprehensive discussion of the artist’s career and work is included in the description in the online catalog as well as three photos to show this stunning piece. This artwork is expected to go for at least $8000 and may fetch as high as $12000 or more during the action.
