Rating Definition:

Very fine, with 85% of the original blue finish, showing areas of brown patina on the underside of the barrel, bright wear on the edges and back strap, mild pitting on the muzzle and frame, and some tool marks on the floorplate. The grips are very good, with some dents and scratches. The stock is very good, with cracks in the body and a number of dents and scuffs. Mechanically excellent.
