Rating Definition:

Very good plus. The barrel sets have an overall dark brown patina with areas of visible Damascus pattern, some rougher spotting, and clear markings. The receiver is mostly brown with very faint markings, and spotting throughout. The wood is very good with well defined checkering, dings, and bruises throughout. Mechanically excellent.
