Three firearms coming out of storage: Ruger single-ten, marlin m60 and a Winchester SXP.

Thoroughly cleaned before storing in case about a year ago

Should I do anything particular to them now before breaking them out?

Just make sure there is nothing in the bores and there is no gummed up lube and all should be well.

+1 on cleaning them.

One year should be no problem.
5+ years is interesting, a decade or more is REAL interesting

If they were stored with a preservative, I would just wipe it off and re-lube the gun with the gun lube of your choice.

Thanks all...

Quick wipe and relube is the way I'll handle them
