Rating Definition:

Fine with 60% original blue finish remaining with some muzzle wear, some thinning on the barrel, a couple very small dings on the magazine tube and some thinning to a smooth gray on the receiver from normal handling over the years. There is also some wear caused by the saddle ring. The buttplate has a smooth mottled brown and gray patina. The refinished wood retains almost all of the finish and shows a few minor dents and handling marks. The checkering remains very crisp. The markings are sharp. The action is excellent. A very nice addition to any advanced Winchester collection.
