Rating Definition:

Very fine. 80% plus original blue finish remains with an area of oxidation and mild surface pitting near the muzzle, crisp markings, areas of flaking and brown patina on the receiver sides, and handling marks overall. The stock is also fine with scattered small pressure dents, good color, and some heavier dings on the buttstock. Mechanically excellent. The scope is fine with rub lines where it has moved in the rings and slightly hazy optics.
