Sharing Inherited Collection.
 
24 Attachment(s)
Hi everyone. I just wanted to share some pictures of some firearms I inherited from my grandfathers collection. I shared an Ithaca to the page and figured you all might appreciate seeing some other WW2 Firearms. Im very much a novice to the collecting world so any and all information on anything is appreciated very much. I sadly was not able to learn the history or stories behind these before my grandfather passed and I yet had discovered my love for WW2 Relics. Opinions on condition and value are welcome as well. Thank you all!

Sorry to hear about your grandfather. Whatever you do, don't sell any of them. Pass them down.

1911Pistolero 02-08-2020 06:23 PM

Beautiful collection btw.

WOW !!! Your Grandfather must have been a awesome guy. Sorry for your loss but that is one heck of a collection.

He sure was man, he loved his collection more than anything. Thank you very much though!

Matt95,

Sorry for your loss, suburb collection of WWII firearms and veteran "bring backs" seems mags & holsters match the Luger & P-38 (etc.) The German 8mm sniper if that's the original/ and period scope worth quite a bit today. The M-1 carbine, any idea of manufacture? Those carbines are so much fun to shoot while ammo is expensive.

Thanks for sharing and enjoy your grandfathers cherished collection

Like I mentioned in another thread your grandfather was obviously a man with good tastes in firearms, and he knew to buy high-condition examples with excellent collector's potential. That's in contrast to a lot of people who've filled their safes full of cheap guns that ultimately are worthless come resale time. I'm glad your grandfather had someone to hand these down to, and not have to worry about someone selling them all off at a pawn shop or (gulp) turning them all in to the police to be destroyed.

Condolences on your loss.

Wow!!! I hope you enjoy firearms. Beautiful collection.

Thanks for sharing.

Stunning collection!

I appreciate that man. I’m not too sure the manufacturer of the carbine at the moment and I’ll have to get back to you. I have shot it and have to agree that is very fun to shoot. Thank you

That means a lot sir, and as always thank you. Grandma told me he only looked for the best of the best stuff. I appreciate all your help.
