Have you pulled the hammer and rotated the cylinder? If the answer to that is yes then shoot it. You have already started the rotation scratch so it is not pristine.

If you can afford it, buy another one. Then go out and shoot both of them. I will admit that I do have a couple firearms that I have not shot yet, but that is due to a lack of time (my Type 56 SKS, 58 vintage, got the ammo, don't have the time yet) my Type 38 and 99 Arisakas ( Waiting on an ammo order) and my CVA 1861 Colt Navy replica in .44 (Dad and i built it in the mid 80s, still working up the B@!!s to load it and pull the trigger. It should hold together, but given that it was an unfinished kit, I will proceed with caution when I shoot it for the first time after the move.), in part because iI never had all of the needed supplies before now. If i had while in NY, I would have had to put it on the permit to take it out to enjoy it. By not having the components, it was never classed as a firearm, it was nothing more than a paperweight under state laws.

My feeling on it is, without a special reason to have it, I will not have a firearm that I do not intend to shoot. If you don't want to shoot it, I'll gladly take it off your hands for you.

Life is too short. Shoot that pistol every chance you get! It'll still be worth a nice amount when/if you decide to sell it and you can say you've had some fun along the way.

I had the same one and it is totally awesome ! BUT I'm used to a 45 1911 and can't shoot a hog leg at all! Plus the sights are LOUSY for target . It has the groove and thin blade which is proper for the gun .... Sold it and was not sorry 😳

I actually like shooting groove and blade sights, but I'm used to shooting revolvers with fixed sights.
