Rating Definition:

Very good. The barrel and magazine retain 25% original blue finish, otherwise the rifle has a mottled gray patina with traces of original case colors and blue finish in the protected areas. The wood is very good with a sizeable sliver missing from the forearm, couple small missing chips near the tangs and some minor-moderate dings and scratches. Mechanically excellent.
