Rating Definition:

Fine as partially refinished (wood). The balance of rifle retains 75% plus of the original blue with scattered scratches and light pitting with some minor wear at the muzzle. The case colors remain 70% intact. The receiver has some high edge wear and the takedown collar is slightly faded to a smooth brown patina. The revarnished forearm is very good with scattered scratches, dings and minor varnish loss on the forearm. The buttstock is very fine. One mounting screw on the peep sight is absent. Mechanically fine.
