Rating Definition:

Fine. The barrel retains 30% of original blue finish with the balance a smooth brown patina. 30% plus original case colors remain on the hammer, receiver and lever. 50% of the original nitre blue remains on the loading gate. The wood is fine showing some minor pressure dents and scratches (mostly on the buttstock). Mechanically excellent.
