Rating Definition:

Very good as partially refinished, the barrel forward lower receiver and takedown ring. The barrel retains most of the finish with some light edge wear. The magazine retains 99% finish. The receiver retains 60% original finish with areas of smooth brown patina. The lever and hammer have a smooth dark patina with traces of the original case colors in protected areas. The wood is refinished with a small fill repair on the bottom rear of the forearm, overall a few minor dings and handling marks, and crisp recut checkering. The markings are clear. Mechanically excellent.
