Sharing Inherited Collection.

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.

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.

Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.

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.
