Craig launched CGM Auctions in 2011, the first auction house in the military space (and one of the first ever anywhere) to deliver lifetime-guarantees, no buyer's premium, low opening bids, and no reserves. Now in its 2nd year, CGM Auctions is a game-changing force in military antique and firearms collecting.
