Rating Definition:

Very good with gray patina and oil staining on the lock and barrel along with some light pitting, aged patina on the brass, filing marks on the interior of the trigger guard, mostly crisp engraving and carving, small chips along the forend, a few small cracks, and general scrapes and dings. The bayonet has been browned and has some pits. Mechanically needs work.
