There are several specialized auctions houses in the U.K. (and the U.S.) and other general auctioneers like Christie's and Sotheby's who have specialized arms auctions from time to time.

You might also try one of the U.K.'s best antiques arms dealers, Peter Finer, who I can wholly recommend as being fair in his dealings. However, he only buys and stocks the finest examples.
