    Nice looking piece!

    Hmmm, if it was that easy to convince you, what say we all agree to convince ourselves to each get one just like it?

    I love my Hi Powers very much, but these recent 1911 threads may drive me to carry my Springfield Gov't a bit!

    Nice but . . . how can it be "used not fired"?

    Easily. Pre-owned, perhaps carried a bit, but no range time or primers popped. Lots of people purchase firearms, lock them in a safe or stick them in a closet, then decide later to sell them. Once they have been owned by an individual they are "used" guns.

    My assumption. Looks new but had never fired under the check box “used” on the tag.

    As soon as a new gun is signed out of the FFL log book and into someone else's name, they're considered used. More than likely the pistol has been fired, at the factory, but nobody seems to count that though.
