Rating Definition:

Fine. The barrels have 85% of the slightly plum hued refinished blue with some mild edge wear, and small surface scratches. The action and locks have a mostly gray patina with 40% original muted case colors and some light spotting. The wood is also fine with some visible oxidation and light pitting on the forearm knuckle, and freshened checkering and rubbed oil finish on the buttstock, and newer recoil pad. Mechanically excellent.
