    Cool find. Kinda scary they were just tucked away in a closet loaded though.

    I bought a buddy of mine a replica black powder navy pistol. Last I heard he still hasn't shot it and its been 15 years.

    Wish I bought it for myself... :-(

    The man who intended to use them if need be knew what condition they were in and where they were. I don't find that troubling in the least. This was a closet in the home of two adults, not a storage room at a day care.

    The concern was not 20-25 years ago when they were first placed there....
    The concern was now, when the ammo and handguns were both defective!!! :shocked:

    How would the handgun be defective? Ammo may have issues, but that assumes he placed them there and just let them sit.

    Sorry. Just read the op again. I wouldn't be concerned with the handgun, just the ammo.

    I would like to see the face of my daughter and maybe the wife, when they start finding guns all over the house when I'm gone.... :rofl:

    Shouldn't be difficult to google up some documentation on how to field strip those guns. You can clean and lube them yourself, you're going to have to learn how to do it anyway. Plus you need cleaning supplies anyway for your G19.
     
  17. Very cool. No need to pay the gun shop to clean them. YouTube videos and do it yourself. I guarantee there is nothing wrong with the ammo either unless that closet went through a flood. What is the story behind that little plastic bag that is shaped just like the pistol? That must be from when the gun was new in box, correct? Very cool!

    I would generally agree with you if it was me, but not knowing the OPs background and the guns backgrounds, having them inspected is not a bad idea.

    I'm new to handguns, so having an expert look things over is worth the money on these two older guns.....

    I have watch the breakown and cleaning of a G19 on YouTube......looks like a piece of cake!!!
