Rating Definition:

Good. The barrel and magazine tube retains 30% of the original blue finish with scattered scratches, dings and edge wear along the octagon barrel. The receiver retains traces of the blue finish mottling to a smooth silver finish with scattered scratches and dings. The revarnished wood is good with scattered scratches, dings, pressure dents and varnish loss. Mechanically fine.
