Rating Definition:

Very fine. The barrel and magazine retains 85% plus original blue with a series of dings near the muzzle and patch of minor pitting near the rear sight. The receiver retains 70% original blue finish with the balance a smooth brown patina. The hammer and lever retains 40% of the original case colors. The refinished wood is very fine with a couple hairline cracks near the lower tang and some very scattered, very minor handling marks. Mechanically excellent.
