    Default Unfired MP5 - to shoot it or not to shoot it?

    So if you had an MP5 that has never been fired. It does not have a single scratch on it. Even the SEF lower has no marks from moving the selector.
    Would you shoot it or not?

    Edit:
    The MP5 is HK, no build or clone.

    For me it would depend on where I stood in life. It may be worth more new and unfired but if you don't sell it and kick the bucket and it's just sitting in your safe it does you no good and someone else gets it.

    Yep. If you have to ask that question, you should not fire it, and maybe even sell it now because you're afraid of lowering the value. It will sit and you'll get little enjoyment from it, except for showing it off to HK elitists. Then buy something you can fire and not worry about 'losing value.' Of course, if money is no object, keep in in a glass case to impress those visiting HK elitists. Sell it later after getting some more appreciation, or pass it on when you check out.

    Not being harsh, because in my case, I could make myself afford such an item, but I'd be like you, worried about devaluing it, because that kind expenditure is a pretty big stretch for me. My home is the only singular item I own with more value. So I would be back and forth, then fire it one day, and not be able to sleep for a month knowing it will never be worth the same amount again.

    Shoot it.
    I don't "run" my guns or "run" anything on them. Likewise, none of my guns are "platforms". I hold them up, not the other way around.

    100% shoot it. My collection is not a museum.
