Rating Definition:

Excellent as modified (stock shortened) with 98% blue finish remaining, showing some mild edge wear and some minor flaking on the trigger guard plate. The markings are light on left side of barrel, but writer believes that to be a worm roll die as the internal inspection revealed crisp Winchester verified proofs. The stock has had approximately one inch in length removed and the checkering remains sharp. The wood overall, shows a few scattered minor dings and dents. The markings are clear. Mechanically excellent.
