Rating Definition:

Fine with 50% plus original blue finish remaining with some thinning and wear on the barrel and magazine tube and a mix of thin original blue finish and smooth gray patina on the receiver. Most of the original case colors remain on the hammer, and the lever has a smooth gray patina with original case colors in protected areas. The wood is good with numerous minor dents, dings and scratches. The markings are crisp and clear. The action is excellent.
