Rating Definition:

Very fine. The barrel retains 90% original blue finish with some minor muzzle wear and thinning, and a couple of areas of minor pitting that show signs of cleaning on the right side of the barrel near the muzzle. The receiver retains 50% original blue finish with scattered flaking and areas of smooth gray patina. The magazine retains 90% original finish and the lever shows 70% original finish. The buttplate has a mottled silver gray patina. The wood is also very fine with a very attractive burl grain, almost all of the original varnish and overall some scattered minor dings and scratches. All markings are clear. Mechanically excellent.
