Rating Definition:

Good as refinished. The barrel and magazine show signs of having been cleaned with a smooth gray patina showing strong traces of original blue finish around the front sight base. The receiver has a smooth artificial grayish brown patina with areas of darker brown. The lever and buttplate have a smooth dark patina. The revarnished wood is good with scattered minor dings, dents and scratches. The markings are clear (proofs are light). The action is fine.
