Basically the same as "barn fresh" which means: new to the market.
It is not surprising that this would have come from an estate. Any Benjamin CO2 pistol that was used will not be found in this type of condition. Can't say that my experience is the whole story but I've usually found these Benjamin CO2 pistols in rusty condition. The Benjamin finish just didn't hold up to the moisture condensation that goes along with CO2 use. As a partial answer, Benjamin used a brass barrel liner, but, that caused another problem of corrosion from the dissimilar metals - evidence of this can be seen in the pictures of this gun (green blobs around breech).
These guns were all designed by the same guy, Ray Katt -president/owner of Benjamin.
