The bolt carrier does appear dry.

I am curious on the ammo type. If you held onto ammo for 7 years, there is 100% chance folks here have ammo from then, too. Shoot, I have ammo from the 60s and...

It sounds like you have some prospective buyers. Buy the grips you like, and put the ones you don't in a box or up for sale to defray the cost.
