Rating Definition:

Very good. The period refinished barrel and magazine tube has a smooth dark patina with minor pitting under the finish. The crisp brass has an attractive patina. The wood is very good with a replacement forearm, a couple missing minor chips and some minor ding and scratches mostly on the stock. Mechanically excellent.
