I just recently picked up these old 1911's that I dated to 1917 & 1918. They are in great shape for their age and I would like to keep them that way.
I have never had guns this old and am not sure what the best way to take care of them is. I keep the revolvers looking good with massive amounts of Eezox, which seems to work really well. I am nervous to break these down and clean them wrong or put the wrong stuff in. I also have no idea what they are worth, but I'm hoping it's alot. Doesn't matter too much, because it will be my kids having the chance to sell them first!
Any ideas on how to keep them intact and looking great?
Also, I've been trying to sort out my magazine box and have these old mags that aren't attached to any guns. Any way of finding out info on these mags?
