Rating Definition:

Very good as partially refinished (receiver, wood). The receiver has a smooth artificial brown patina with scattered traces of original blue finish in protected areas. The wood has been lightly sanded and oiled and remains very good with a chip on the lower edge at the receiver on each side and a few scattered minor dings. The markings are clear and crisp. The action is fine.
