    Personally I wouldn't.

    I'd take it apart and clean it up good oil all the parts. However refinishing it will destroy and value it might have to a collector.

    does "used as a prop" mean non functioning? or can it shoot?

    Looks like a Model 94. Why would you need to remove the firing pin from one of those? They probably juust used extra-smokey blanks if it was actually used to simulate firing. Also looks old enough to pre-date all the weird laws/liability/fear that's been building up around firearms in recent decades...

    Under the list of, "Things you should check before accepting a firearm as payment for services rendered," I would put being able to shoot pretty high up there.

    Yeah I was thinking it resembled a model 94 / marline 336

    Removing the firing pin just seems like the easiest and simplest way to "deactivate" a gun that was used as a prop, especially it if was one that never fired and there were ones used for shooting on the same shoot. Just a safety thing so the gun doesn't get mistakenly loaded and then someone takes some wadding to the thigh at point blank.
