If I owned the gun, I would have a shadow box made with a pretty Mahogany frame, glass front, and felted inside. Go to a trophy shop and get a brass plate engraved with the rifle info. Brasso is fine. Put a light coat of oil on it. Put it inside and discourage anybody from handling it. Salt from your hands will get on it and cause corrosion. When you change the batteries in your smoke detector, take the gun out and reclean. At least annually. If you can find some of those dessicant packs like comes with computor packing, put them inside with the rifle. Good Luck, Candyman
