Rating Definition:

Good. The barrel retains 50% original blue finish thinning to a brown. The remaining metal surfaces have a smooth brown-gray patina with some evidence of being cleaned some time ago (more prevalent on the forend cap). There is some minor spotting (more prevalent on the barrel) with even oxidation on the buttplate. A few frame screws are marred. The sanded and re-oiled wood is now undersized with some minor dings and scratches, along with a few hairline cracks and filled repaired near the upper tang. Mechanically excellent.
