Define factory new condition

    I would define it as a gun from a dealer/warehouse NOT sold to anyone else.
    If a seller was a private person with an un-used gun, I still would NOT consider it factory new.

    Can of worms IMHO. New in box, with hanging tags. Then there is never turned for a wheel gun.

    factory new = never sold at retail

    if it was sold at retail then "as new"

    Selling as a used gun but has no / zero blemishes. Unfired or minimal firing.

    Besides not being sold to anyone previously, it would also have to be as new from factory, definitely no rust spots, no marks on the slide unless test fired by factory ... after that is New Old Stock, then "As New never used/fired" ... I'm sorry to say I've overheard employees talk about shooting guns they'd received, for stock or transfer. I had a dealer I used for unusual/out of production, guns, that I'd seen extensive pic's of that would pass for new but obviously had 20+ ejection nicks when I received it, needless to say, I don't use that dealer any longer.
    If you really desire something, you'll find a way ?
    ? otherwise, you'll find an excuse.

    I think adding "factory" to the new condition means never sold previously, and in mint condition. If it has been sold, then it should be "like new in box". If it is unfired, then add that to it.

    I greatly appreciate (and follow) the sellers that lets multitude of of pictures do the describing for them. One guy I have bought several guns from, is on my favorite sellers list. I have now bought two guns that I didn't even know I was interested in but after seeing how absolutely perfect this 50+ year old gun was, I added it to my collection too.
    Fanatic collector of the 10mm auto.
