There are still guns out there that are unused or virtually unuded. THey are not as common as they once were but they are out there. Mostly set away in collections. I have bought a number of models at auctions over the years that are like new.
Personally I believe that the status of being unfired is not really relevant although a lot of people seem to feel that when selling a gun that they are compelled to say "unfired", "fired less than a box", etc. A gun that is properly cared for can look like new for a long time. I own a number of them.
The value in the Blue Book would be what I would reference.
