Rating Definition:

Very good. The rifle retains 30% plus original thin blue finish with extensive areas of smooth brown and gray patina on the balance. There is some light oxidation on the peep sight. The wood is very fine with a few minor dents on the forearm and overall crisp checkering. The markings and engraving are clear. Mechanically excellent. The three extra magazines are very good, and the pouch is good plus with some stains, scratches and tight stitching. One will look a long time to fine another factory engraved Winchester Model 1907!
