I have a Winchester MOD.20-410 that was my grandmothers. The last time it was fired that I know of was when I last used it in 1985. It is in as good of shape as it was back then. I spent 22 years in the military and its been in a safe the entire time. Is it best to leave something this old as is or should I find a place to refurbish it (what ever that may be for something of this age)

I have a Winchester Model 1400 MKII and a Remington 1100 that were my fathers not sure I need them both but they are at least 30 years old are they common enough that I can sell one or should I keep them both.

I have a Remington 870 express I purchase myself in 1986 I was thinking of setting up for home defense.

Joe,

It is best to leave it as is. The only recommend action would be to clean it and lightly oil it.

I wouldn’t sell your dad’s shotguns unless you really need the money. I sold my dad’s Model 12 and I kind of wish I had not done so.

Yes, but a Model 12 ain’t exactly the same as a 1400.
