It would be safe to shoot without a doubt if the upper and the lower are good and tight. If it is a little loose please put a couple of shells in it (Safely!) and see if it is tight. If so you are good to go! The estimated value of it with the stock and but pad modification mentioned is $450-$495. However sentimental values are more valuable when it comes from our loved ones! Then they are priceless!
Thanks to both of you, for the great detail on manufacturing dates.
