Rating Definition:

Very fine as factory replated. The barrel and magazine tube retain 98% original blue finish with a couple of light scratches and some varnish residue. The receiver retains 98% factory nickel finish with a number of minor scratches. Most of the case colors remain on the hammer and lever. The wood is fine with 70% varnish remaining and scattered minor dents, dings and scratches. Mechanically excellent. The markings are clear. Deluxe Winchester Model 94 saddle ring carbines are rare!
