Looks "like new" to me. Not brand new.
Definitely looks like it has been loaded, definitely looks like it has been fired.
Not that I mind the scratches/firing/etc, that's gonna happen when I buy a gun. But when I'm paying full price for a brand new gun, I want a brand new gun. I'll take the stickers off myself!
Just my two cents.
On a side note, congrats on snagging one of those! I waited months before giving up and getting an M2 instead. Still waiting to see if my dealer gets his hands on one...
