|Me Too. I am always working on a "project" vintage gun. Some take longer than I would like but most get finished in good time and there is a feeling of accomplishment to restore or just rebuild an old undervalued piece into something to be admired. Oh and also something to shoot!|

|This would be a good idea providing that the seller is required, or the ad would automatically state, that it was a rebuild and not original as from the factory. To someone such as myself, this would be a very important issue to know about when considering a purchase. In the collector range of firearms, even the more recent ones, the need to know this is magnified. Remember that there is always someone out there who is more than willing to separate a uninformed person from their hard earned cash. Just a thought & opinion.

|FR&G I agree, I see intentional misrepresentation here and other sites, i personally wouldn't be able to sleep at night KNOWING that i lied to someone for monetary gain, now stuff happens and i for one don't know everything about every gun, i try to be upfront and as helpfully as i can with every sale, i recently listed a rifle as "new" without papers or the box. it was .50 CVA blazer made in 1986, i got it with a group of rifles on a trade from a fellow i met here that i would trust with my entire collection. it sold for $100 and just tonight i get an e-mail saying that it was not new that the sights were replaced and filed and the trunnions were fit up wrong? this rifle never even had a #11 snapped on it, more less a bullet stuffed, so why would the sights be filed? the sights on this rifle were never replaced and anyone with half a brain could see that from 10 feet away, and ITS A CVA BLAZER, not known for high quality and artistic fit ups. i offered to refund his money in full including shipping and explained that it was not my intention to mis lead anyone buy saying it was new. the lesson i learned: I'll never list another gun as new unless it is in the box with the plastic and Styrofoam and papers etc. some people would complain if you hung them with a new rope! and no he doesn't want to send it back. hummm?|

|oldmanjeffers: What I have learned over the years is that if it was not purchased new in the box by me personally it is better to describe it something like "Used As New"; "Used As New In The Box", etc. By using the word "Used" it diminishes the thought that the seller may be trying to misrepresent something and basically removes the grounds for a complaint. Just a thought derived form past experiences that I have encountered.
As an after thought you could compare this to purchasing an automobile. Once the title has changed hands, regardless if it has left the lot or not, it is a "Used" automobile. Many here, and other places, feel/think/consider that once a firearm is sold it immediately becomes a "Used" firearm regardless if it has been taken out of the box, fired, etc.
