Rating Definition:

Fine as partially refinished. The barrel has a smooth mottled grayish patina with strong original blue in the protected areas. The remaining metal surfaces retain 70% thin original blue finish with a smooth artificial brown patina on the left side and chamber area on the receiver. The receiver is tapped for a Lyman 5A sight which is absent and replaced with filler screws. The revarnished wood is fine with only a few overall scattered minor dings and handling marks, and a few minor chips in the otherwise crisp checkering. The markings are clear. The action is excellent.
