Rating Definition:

Fine. The barrels have an overall mottled gray patina with sharp markings, spotting throughout, some mild pitting, and faint twist pattern. The receiver and locks have traces of original case colors in the protected areas around the hammers, but are silver/gray with clear markings, and traces of original blue finish on the trigger guard. The wood is also fine with moderately worn checkering, small dings throughout, and a few larger marks on the buttstock. Mechanically excellent.
