Anyone know when it was made?

Recommendations for long term preservation methods?

Thanks, 18Z50

Being an H&R it would've been made in the 1950s.

Looks to be made sometime between 1955-1956.

Spring 1954.

It looks like it's prepped for long term storage now.

He should oil it after he cleans and shoots and cleans it.

Nice.   Looks like a correct grade returned from Greece.   Still has their soft preservative grease on it.
 Did it come with any paperwork?

Actually, Yes.  

I do a lot of helpful stuff for several neighbors - but never for pay or for any gain.

They are old Vets, without family around to help them, so I'm not doing it for any gain, but because they are neighbors, friends & Vets.

I believe "walking it" means more than "talking it" when it comes to "Thank You for Your Service".

Congrats to O.P.'s Son for having a very cool neighbor who wants to pass along some Freedom to a Young American!

That looks like a very nice Garand so hope y'all get out and shoot it soon.

We had an ugly older widow offer BJs to neighborhood teenagers to mow her  yard and other yard work but never guns, much less American classics. And no, my parents didn't allow me to go help her.(couple of cockblocks looking back).

IMO they're the best.  
I'm not sure if it's a Greek return.  They tended to be a little "blacker" but it's hard to tell by the pics
