Give your son or grandson, whoever you meant to post in your #8 post above, a shooter. If the 2nd gen is the only gun he has, he'll shoot it. Give it to him later when he understands the concept of heirloom collectibles.

I recently traded for a 7 1/2" 2nd Gen 45. It too appeared unfired, and the owner knows he never shot the gun. It had a box, but it was a bit "ragged". After we made the trade he followed me to a target and it was "unfired" no more. His comment was "WOW! I guess I should've shot that one". It was plunking my loads all into one nice tight little spot at 25 yards.
My point is... keeping these guns unfired means you never know what you're missing.
