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!

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.
