Ken is a certified smith and FFL and is capable of determining the safety of a firearm.A house fire will mess with the heat treatment of the metal. I would not fire it as it may very well blow up. I guess the real question is how much do you value your life?
correct, the springs are still intact and haven't lost their zip, as far as the receiver goes, its no more "dangerous" than someones bent flat, ATF specs for silver soldering a brake on are, 1100 to 1200 degrees, at that temp it would burn the stock and handguards to a crip, if this gun showed up with the wood about gone from fire, i wouldn't touch itLook at the forearm and stock, they are still intact. It doesn't look like it got hot enough to mess with the heat treating. You have to heat something red hot to do that.
