Rating Definition:

Very good. The barrel retains 30% original blue finish with a smooth plum/brown patina on the balance. The receiver has a smooth mottled brown patina with strong original blue finish in the protected area of the receiver sight. The magazine is a mix of thin original blue finish and smooth brown patina. The lever and buttplate have a smooth grayish brown patina. The wood has been freshened with a coat of varnish and remains very good with two minor cracks on the top rear of the hand guard and overall some minor dents and dings. The markings are clear. The action is excellent.
