Rating Definition:

Very good overall with thinning brown finish on the barrel strong Damascus patterning, scattered small dings and surface scratches and edge wear near the muzzle. The receiver has some muted traces of the original case colors. The balance has aged to a mottled silver/brown patina as has the trigger guard. The wood is good with scattered moderate handling marks and indentations as well as some deeper scratches and marring on the varnish. Mechanically very good.
