Rating Definition:

Good as partially refinished. Traces of original blue finish remain on the barrel and magazine tube with the balance having faded to a dark brown patina. The lever also has a dark brown patina. The remaining components retain 85% of the period replated nickel finish which has patches of pitting, flaking, and some spots of oxidation. The refinished wood is very good with attractive figure, sharp checkering, and minor marks. The action is fine, and the markings are mostly legible.
