Rating Definition:

Very good plus. The rifle retains 50% plus faded original blue finish with edge wear, areas of plum and brown patina, and some scattered minor spotting. The hammer, lever, forend cap and buttplate have a mottled gray patina with strong original case colors in the protected areas and some scattered minor spotting. The reoiled wood is very good with minor dents and handling marks. The trigger screw is a replacement and is a bit marred and ill-fitting. The markings are clear. The action is fine.
