Default Unfired 104FR question

I bought an unfired 104FR from a member here awhile ago.

I have 105, 104UR and all so enjoy shooting 5.45

Should I keep this as unfired for a future return or shoot the thing and enjoy it?

I don't buy firearms to look at, I buy them to shoot them.

All BS aside, sell it.

You can make more $$$ on that rifle to buy something nicer.
Get yourself a Galil ACE or something normally at a premium tag.

I am a firm believer that if someone will overpay for a ~70 year old stamped sheet metal AK
..... by all means be the seller in that equation and upgrade.

I you already have a 105 and 104UR, I would sell just because of what the cash they command to get one. I sold my last one for that reason and because I have a 104UR and SGL31 already. Those are keepers and the 104fr wasn't as necessary to hold on to in my opinion. If you keep it, then shoot it. Like others have said, why keep it a virgin for the next guy? The time is ripe to sell due to demand.

I’d keep it, shoot it, enjoy it and not worry about making a quick buck. It’s the only true to form factory aks-74 and I’d definitely regret letting mine go.

a few questions...
Do you want or need to sell it? If yes, sell it.
Do you want something else specific that you don't have the money for? If yes sell it.
Are you a collector? If no and above are yes, sell it. If yes and above are no, keep it. If yes and above are yes, then decide what you want more and if the 104FR can be replaced at a reasonable cost you'd be willing to pay.

Love ACES. Have them all!

Perhaps my son will appreciate getting this 104FR from me one day.

That's my reservation from selling it.

105 is fun to shoot. I can only imagine how fun 104FR will be.

Shoot it, dress it up Barbie, but keep all the original parts.

Of course it will never be as valuable as it is un-fired, but is that why you bought it?

Don't sell or trade it, you will never get one at a close to lower price.

Among all my AK's, it is my favorite.

Sell it is the correct answer.

It is always better to upgrade the quality of your firearms instead of the quantity.

An unfired SLR 104FR is currently overvalued. Take advantage of that.

A $1800+ AR15 is a hell of a lot better firearm than is a $1800+ SLR104FR.

Going price now seems to be down on GB from earlier, now about $2500+/-.

Yeah just keep it man, donít sell it for some dime a dozen worthless ar or anything else easily replaceable thatíll always be around. Unless you need money for something important there is no other gun Iíd trade a 104fr for and Iíd never buy one for what they are going for now.
