So when my Grandpa died a few years ago, he left his entire WW2 collection to his grandsons(myself, 2 brothers, and a cousin)

Included in all of that are his M1 carbine, M1 Garand, and Colt m1911A1 pistol.

They have been sitting neglected at my Grandmas place few the last few years.

My question for all of you is... What would you recommend I do to them to keep them in good condition that won't reduce their value. I haven't seen them yet, but was told that the rifles might have some minor surface rust.

Any help would be great. Thanks

I would keep them, have them appraised, and also have a professional smith clean them up. You are looking at a real piece of American history and heritage. The manufacturer's may even be traced to the lineage of the weapon, such as who made it, were the weapon went any pictures of the weapon in action, etc.. It has endless profitabilities, but you can do a lot by not neglecting them. Or, you can give them to me... :wink: The best part about this is you can continue to pass these weapons down the family line and they will always grow in value and family tradition.
