Rating Definition:

Fine. The rifle retains 50% of the thinning original blue finish with the balance displaying some traces of original blue and case colors and primarily a mottled gray-brown patina with some minor scratches and light spotting. The wood is very good with some minor pressure marks and light abrasions. The action is excellent, and the markings are crisp.
