Rating Definition:

Very good. The rifle retains 20% original blue finish with the balance a smooth brown patina. The lever retains traces of original case colors. There is some minor spotting and pitting (mostly on the receiver and takedown collar). The wood is very good with some minor dings, scratches and pressure marks along with a few long scratches and a few minor gouges. Mechanically excellent.
