Rating Definition:

Good. The rifle has a smooth brown patina with traces of original blue finish remaining in the protected areas of the receiver. There are some vise marks present on the base of the barrel, behind the rear sight. The refinished wood is good with a few putty filled blemishes and some scattered minor handling marks. Mechanically fine.
