Rating Definition:

Very fine. The barrel and magazine retains 90% original blue finish thinning to a gray and the receiver and buttplate retain 60% original blue finish with the balance a smooth gray patina. There is some minor pitting on the barrel towards the muzzle and on the buttplate. The bolt retains 95% original blue finish. The hammer and lever retain traces of original case colors, otherwise faded to gray. The wood is fine with much of the finish remaining and some minor dings and scratches. Mechanically excellent.
