Welcome to SGW, both guns are considered modern firearms built after 1950, unless you see physical damage or rust pitting I would disassemble and do a normal clean and lube then take them out and break some clays, I would not shoot steel shot through either gun but there are other options if not toxic shot is required where you shoot.

Old gun oil can get gummy. I’d clean with something like Gun Scrubber which is basically carburetor cleaner. Blow out with compressed air. Re lube with break free or whatever lubricant you prefer. Check all barrels for any obstructions and run a brush through them while you’re at it.

All good advice, take them down as far as you can or feel comfortable going, clean and lube them well. Put them back together. Go buy a couple of snap caps and put a piece of tape or sticker on the primer and see if your firing pins make contact or pierce the paper.
