    No such animal as unfired except maybe certain commemoratives. Every firearm is test fired 2-3 times with proof loads prior to leaving the factory.

    "Unfired" is more an agreed upon condition between seller and buyer. There is a bit of faith and trust involved as well as close examination.

    Wow, I'd love to have an original Nylon 66--you should do well as these have gone up in price over the past few years. The ones I've seen at gunshows lately in decent shape have been at $500+ (Not new in box). Good luck--hope you get out of it what you'd like.

    If you are unsure as to whether it has been fired or not,it would be best if it was sold Like New In Box,and state that you are unaware of it ever being fired. It has already been sold at one point,therefore it isn't a New rifle.

    Also if you sell it as unfired,and it has been fired,then you open yourself up to being sued by whomever buys it. Be smart and cover yourself,there are collectors that will expect to receive an unfired weapon,and they will examine it very closely when they get it.
