Rating Definition:

Fine. The rifle retains 60% original blue finish with the balance a mix of smooth brown and gray patinas. There are a few tool-like marks on the takedown collar. The wood is also fine with a surface chip missing on the wrist (right side) and some minor handling marks. Mechanically excellent.
