Rating Definition:

Very good as partially refinished (wood). The barrel retains 60% blue finish with the balance a smooth brown patina and appears to have been lengthened. The remaining metal surfaces have a smooth gray patina with a clear and crisp engraving. The refinished wood is fine with some minor handling marks. The forearm has a repaired chip at the rear (left side) and the buttstock hardware is ill-fitting with filler near upper tang and buttplate. The grip checkering has some wear with the forearm checkering remaining crisp overall. The break lever is off center otherwise action is fine.
