Rating Definition:

Very good plus. The rifle has a smooth mottled brown patina with traces of bright original blue finish in the protected areas around the receiver side plates. The lever and buttplate have a dark patina with some minor oxidation on the buttplate. The wood is good with a number of scratches on the stock, and overall minor dings, dents and a few small gouges. The markings are clear. The action is fine.
