Katsumi: In many places it's customary (if not legally required) that any firearm previously purchased at retail be listed as "used" regardless of whether it was ever actually fired by the original purchaser or not.

IMO, this is probably due to the terms in many warranties limiting recourse for repair of defects to "the original purchaser". While this might not become an actual "issue" if the product's registration card was never filled out and sent to the manufacturer/importer, many dealers regard it as being unethical to list any firearm as being "NIB" unless they got it directly from a manufacturer, distributor or jobber.
