Rating Definition:

Very good. The barrel and magazine retain 30% original blue finish with the balance a smooth brown patina. The remaining metal surfaces retain traces of silvered out original case colors in protected areas. A few very scattered small patches of light pitting are present. The wood is fine with initials hand marked on the buttstock (right side) and some minor pressure dents and scratches. Mechanically fine.
