Rating Definition:

Fine. The barrel retains 95% of the refinished blue showing a streak of gray at the muzzle and limited patches of minor pitting. The remaining metal surfaces retain 60% original blue finish with the balance a smooth gray patina. The reoiled wood is fine with filler added to the front and rear ends of the forearm and some scattered minor handling marks. The checkering is crisp overall. Mechanically excellent.
