Rating Definition:

Near fine. The barrel retains 75% original blue finish with some thinning to a smooth plum and a few minor scratches. The magazine retains 50% of the original blue finish with a smooth gray patina on the balance. The remaining metal surfaces have a smooth gray patina, with some areas of brown and strong original blue finish in protected areas. The undersize, sanded wood is refinished and remains good with a few scratches on the stock and overall light handling and scratch marks. The markings are clear. The action is fine.
