Default General Pattons' Guns

I had some time and was able to get to the Patton Museum at Fort Knox. Here are some shots of the guns that Gen Patton carried.

That Smith needs some serious restoration work, to preserve the history. Is the car at Fort Knox that Patton died in with the broken clock in the back seat???

If I was the proud owner of the .357 Patton carried, I would oil it from time to time, but otherwise leave it as is.

Very cool. I was at Ft. Knox once but the museum was closed so I only got to walk around and the outside where all the tanks are (which is still pretty cool). I've always wanted to go back.

Both his car and his jeep are in the museum. Couldn't see if the clock was in the car. I have pics so I'll post them along with some of the others I took down there.

Guns in their original condition are worth more than ones that have been restored. If you take an old valuable antique gun and refinish it, you reduce its resale value by quite a bit. It's just the way the antique gun market works. That said, you can clean them and oil them of course. Just don't use any harsh abrasives or refinish any wood or the like if you want it to retain value.
