1968 Unfired FN Browning Safari
I have been left an old (1968) FN Browning "Safari", 270 cal. It has a period Redfield (made is USA) 3x9 scope mounted with Redfield rings. It does not have dreaded "Salt Wood" stock.
It is unfired, and in pristine condition.
I know the 2006 “Blue Book of Gun Values” lists this rifle at about $ 1000.00 value, but for that kind of $$, I’m thinking of turning it into a everyday hunter. Personally, I much prefer the old Mauser FN action, and know from experience the Browning will be a shooter.
Is there any good reason why I should keep this in it’s unfired condition, and not turn it into a perfectly good hunting rifle?
