    Always! I always clean before selling, as well. Make sure it is in serviceable condition for the buyer. Just common courtesy, too.

    That's excellent advice even if the firearm is new in the box/new production.

    When I buy or sell any weapon, new or used, I strip it all the way down degrease and relube with Froglube. This gives me a very close look at what i am about to shoot.

    Probably got the idea from the tree huggers that think spiking a tree that is going be harvested is the right thing to do.

    I always to a barrel/rifling check. But WOW is that some crazy stuff. I wouldn't doubt that the gun grabbers would try something like that.

    I don't see any evidence of intent, all I've read is one opinion, and that opinion sounds uninformed to me.

    Every squib I've pounded out of my barrels has appeared unfired. The step from there to conclusion appears to have been motivated by fear, ignorance and paranoia.

    Whenever I get a new toy I can't wait to get it home and take it apart and look at everything. But I'm kinda nuts.

    and nobody has ever sold a gun they bought used and never fired?

    it's possible somebody squirted it with cleaner in the past and that made the bullet look clean...

    every squib looks unfired since it left the casing a low pressure... some soot in the back may be possible but that will easily clean up with CLP

    I've never owned a gun that I didn't fire.

    I suppose if someone gave me (since that's the only way I'd ever own one) a Glock, or a Les Baer, or a Wilson, I'd sell it without shooting it.

    not everybody has... but if you have more than a few, you end up buying guns and forgetting about them until later...

    just saying it's not out of the ordinary.... YMMV
