Rating Definition:

Fine. The barrel retains 80% of the faded original blue finish with scattered scratches, gray patina on the high edges. The receiver retains 75% original blue with scattered scratches and dings overall. The hammer, trigger, lever, and buttplate retain strong traces of vivid and bright case colors in the protected areas, overall showing a smooth gray patina. The markings are clear and crisp. The wood is very good with some minor scattered scratches and dings. Mechanically excellent.
