    My father recently gave me a Cowboy Commemorative model 94 new in the box, never been fired. Mom and he bought it years ago. It's worth about $550 - $600, would it lose value if it was fired? If so, why? I searched the internet and it seems as though this particular rifle isn't that much sought after, so.....I want to shoot it.

    Tierhog,

    Speeking from the standpoint of collectors: If you shoot it, you ruin it's collector value. Period, end of discussion.
    Especially with the manufactured collector guns such as yours. They have little value to start with, so any shooting just reduces it further.

    However, since it is your gun and you want to shoot it, go for it. I'm not a collector and I shoot all my guns.

    However one suggestion. Based on experiance, (I had a Golden Spike) and what I've read on the boards, I'd have it thoroughly checked out by a competent gunsmith familiar with Win 94's before I shot it. Some of the commemorative seem to have been assembled with parts from the "out of spec" bin. So a good check out won't hurt.

    Joe

    Only the company that origanlly sold the gun made a killing on it.Just because an advertisement says 'collectible' don't make it so.Demand does,and the demand for Winny commems never developed much.
    Shoot it and enjoy it!!

    I second the have it checked over opinion. Many of those were way off in tolerances. Winchester 94s are not known for their reliability. I don't own any for CAS. Ubertis are usually better quality and more reliable.
