Rating Definition:

Fine as factory re-barreled with 80% original blue finish remaining on the replacement barrel and magazine, showing some areas of minor thinning. The receiver retains 40% original blue finish with a smooth gray patina on the balance. The lever and buttplate have a smooth silver gray patina. The wood is very good with overall scattered minor scratches, dings and dents. Crisp markings. The action is excellent.
