Rating Definition:

Very good. Overall the rifle has a smooth dark patina with traces of original blue finish in the protected areas. "JAS L Griffith" is hand inscribed on the receiver twice. There is a noticeable ding visible on right side of barrel at breech. The wood is also very good with a couple minor gouges and numerous handling marks. Mechanically fine.
