Leave it alone in wrapper or take it out wipe it down and display it.
It's the holy grail Garand and would like to know what most think.
I have two officially "Unissued Garands" in my collection, one SA and one HRA, purchased at the 2009 (?) GCA Convention in Anniston. I am leaving these strictly alone, for the pleasure of owning rifles just as they were received by the Government.

I have more than one for the pleasure of shooting, including a faux gas trap.

To be picky- Iím guessing what you have is a real gas trap, only assembled from reproduction parts.

I'll accept that correction. It's built up from a RAT Worx kit.
