Rating Definition:

Very fine as partially refinished (wood revarnished and small parts chrome plated). The rifle retains 95% bright original high polish blue finish with some slight thinning. The hammer and the buttplate has been rechromed. The wood is fine as refinished. The wood has a very attractive figuring and shows a repaired minor crack on the upper front, left side of the forearm and a few overall scattered minor dings and handling marks. The markings are clear. The action is excellent.
