Rating Definition:

Very good as customized with traces of blue finish mixed with a smooth brown patina on the barrel and 80% blue finish remaining on the receiver. The bolt handle is bright. The stock is very good with numerous small light pressure dents on the left side just ahead of the wrist, and overall a few minor dings and handling marks, with crisp checkering. The action is excellent. The scope is also excellent with clear optics.
