Rating Definition:

Good. Traces of arsenal refurbished blue finish remains with the balance a mottled blue/gray patina with spotting small dents and nicks, and some oxidation on the bolt handle. The wood is also good with numerous dings and dents throughout, chipping around the edges, and some rough scrapes. Mechanically needs adjustment as the sear does not engage the bolt and the rifle will not properly cock. The scope mount and base are reblued.
