Rating Definition:

Very good as partially refinished. The barrel retains 40% original blue finish with some areas thinning to a smooth plum patina and some scattered minor scratches. The receiver and magazine have an artificial smooth brown patina and scattered original blue finish, (25%). The revarnished wood is good with a few overall scattered minor dings and handling marks. The markings remain clear and crisp. The action is excellent.
