Rating Definition:

Very fine. The carbine retains 70% original blue finish with the balance a smooth gray patina. The lever retains traces of original case colors with the balance a smooth gray patina. The re-oiled wood is very fine with some very scattered minor handling marks. Mechanically excellent.
