Rating Definition:

Very fine overall. The rifle retains 85% of the original blue finish with scattered scratches and muzzle wear. The markings are clear. The hammer and lever retain vivid case colors. The buttplate has a smooth silver patina with brown speckling. The wood is fine with scattered scratches, dings and pressure dents. Mechanically excellent.
