    I bought this gun unfired from Gunbroker.

    I really really want to shoot it since I don't own any safe queens. But it is in unfired condition. Would you shoot this gun if you got one unfired?


    These photos are from another auction on Gunbroker. Mine looks just like it. For reference.

    Take a box of ammo; take a target or three, and have to. Just don't shoot your eye out! :D

    Yes -- shoot it !!!! I have two Marlin Limiteds with gold emblems , high grade wood and real fine engraveing ----- I left them unfired in the box for almost 10 years.

    Fun to look at but I found it was MUCH MORE FUN to shoot them !!!

    Value will go down a bit BUT the Marlins are really not "old enough" to stay NIB ---- just my 2 cents.

    I, personally, wouldn't shoot it.

    But I already have a 39M with a tapered octagon barrel. It'd feel exactly the same.

    That said, I probably also wouldn't have bought it in the first place, since if I did, it'd be a safe queen. :)

    Depends on the price, I guess.
