Rating Definition:

Very fine, with 95% of the original blue, showing some areas of brown patina, high edge wear and scattered light spotting. There is a minor ding in the magazine. The lever retains 95% of the original case color fading to a gray patina, with traces of faded case colors on the buttplate. Repaired stock, with a wood screw in the wrist on the right side and very mild cracking and dents. Mechanically very good.
