Auction Listing



We pulled this estate from the rolling hills of Plainview IL.  Frank Manning was a woodsman, hunter, gun collector and avid Ham radio enthusiast.  He lived on a 30 acre farm where he enjoyed the wildlife, hunting and gunsmithing.  He has a great collection of black powder guns, western rifles, and handguns.  He spent alot of time reloading rounds, working his farm, throwing tomahawks, and living the easy life.  This is an opportunity to buy quality items at a competitive price.

Firearm Terms: As a Federally Licensed Firearms Dealer, Aumann Auctions, Inc. is required to ensure that bidders who purchase a firearm are legally allowed to do so through a FBI background check. If a bidder doubts his or her ability to pass the background check, it is highly recommended that he or she NOT BID on a firearm. High bidders must take possession of purchased firearms in person at Aumann Auctions, Inc. Nokomis, IL facility or at another Federal Firearms Licensed (FFL) location. High bidders will be required to pay the full amount due on their firearm BEFORE the background check is run. All buyers will fill out an ATF Form 4473, show ID and FBI background check will be performed before possession of firearms will be transferred to the buyer. In the event that a high bidder fails the background check, he or she will not be allowed to have the firearm transferred to their possession, nor can it be transferred to another individual. Instead, Aumann Auctions, Inc. will hold the firearms, at their discretion, until the next suitable opportunity to auction or sell the firearms. High bidders who fail the background check will be charged a Thirty-Dollar ($30) re-stocking fee per firearm, as well as regular Sellers’ fees when the firearm is auctioned again. These fees, as well as any others, will be deducted from the proceeds of the resale of the firearms. Any remaining proceeds will be paid to the original high bidder as though they were the consignor of the firearm.


In the event that a high bidder requests to have a firearm shipped to another FFL, they must first pay the full amount due for the firearm plus any additional shipping costs prior to shipping. If the high bidder should fail his or her background check by this FFL dealer, AUMANN AUCTIONS, INC. WILL NOT REFUND any portion of the purchase price or shipping costs to the high bidder. It will be the discretion of the second FFL dealer as to how to dispose of the firearm. When possible, Aumann Auctions will make the effort to retake possession of the firearm and resell, per the terms in the paragraph above.


Bidders take note:

Firearms can only be purchased by the registered bidder, not by another individual, family member or friend. Bidders must be 18 years of age or older on the date of the close of the auction to purchase long guns or long gun ammunition. Bidders must be 21 years of ago or older on the date of the close of the auction to purchase handguns or handgun ammunition.


It is the buyer's responsibility to have any firearms inspected by a certified gunsmith before firing. Aumann Auctions, Inc. has made no attempts to test these items.


Illinois residents must present a valid FOID or Concealed Carry License at the time the ATF Form 4473 is submitted. Illinois residents must abide by the 24-hour waiting period for long guns and the 72-hour waiting period for handguns. This waiting period begins at the point the ATF Form 4473 is submitted.

There is a 10% buying premium!
