Rating Definition:

Excellent. The rifle retains 98% original blue finish with only some minor high point wear, and original blue finish on the lever. There are a few very small areas of surface blemishes on the receiver. The wood is also excellent . The markings are crisp and clear. The action is excellent. The box is good with some wear, and labels intact. Impossible to find like this in the original box!
