Rating Definition:

Very good plus. The brass components have a very pleasant aged patina. The iron components have a mottled grayish patina with some minor pitting on the barrel tang. The lower tang is raised a bit toward the rear. The stock is fine with some scattered minor dings and dents. The action is good.
