Rating Definition:

Fine. The rifle retains 60% plus original blue finish with the balance a mix of smooth brown and gray patinas. 30% original case colors remain on the hammer and lever. The loading gate retains 30% original nitre blue. The reoiled wood is very good with a long hairline crack near the upper tang, a couple small missing chips and some minor handling marks. Mechanically excellent.
