Rating Definition:

Excellent. The rifle retains 99% plus original blue and French grey finish showing light handling/storage marks. There is some discoloration in the trigger guard from dried oil. The stock is also excellent with a light scratch on the upper right rear of the stock, overall light handling/storage marks and sharp checkering. Sharp markings and engraving. The action is excellent.
