Definitely get the gun fixed. The guns are becoming more collectable, especially those early ones with the tenite stocks. Those in nice shape can cost $6-$700. I don't think that's cheap and it won't cost much to get yours into shape. My uncle gave me mine in the 1950's and I've always loved it. Those selectors were always a problem though. When it's repaired make sure you put some blue loctite on the screw, cause they do tend to loosen up and fall out while shooting. This is mine.
