If I could sell it, what is the going price for them? I haven't seen one sell for quite a while.
Since it has been recalled by Remington for safety concerns, I'd say that there is a lot of potential liability involved if you sell it and the buyer is ever injured. You might try selling it as a non-shooting collectible with a liability disclaimer, but that won't keep an aggressive attorney from bringing suit.
