Rating Definition:

Very fine. The barrel and magazine retain 90% original blue finish with moderate muzzle wear, some minor thinning and some minor spotting. The remaining metal surfaces retain 70% original blue finish with the balance a smooth gray patina. The forward half of the left side of the receiver has been partially cleaned with some pin point pitting in that area. The barrel bands, bolt, and buttplate have a smooth gray patina overall with traces of blue remaining with the rear band having minor spotting. The wood is very fine with some minor dings, scratches, and pressure dents, with a couple of large dents on the forearm. Mechanically excellent.
