Rating Definition:

Very good. The rifle retains 30% of the original blue finish mixing to a smooth grey patina with scattered scratches and dings. The marking are crisp and clear. The forend cap and buttplate have some browning speckling. The wood is about good with scattered scratches, dings, and gouges overall. Mechanically excellent.
