Rating Definition:

Very fine, retaining 95% plus original blue finish with loss mostly on the forend cap and magazine tube. 85% original case colors remain on the frame and hammer with some patches of pitting and a crisp engraving, and 60% original case colors remain on the lever and buttplate. The buttstock is excellent with minimal handling marks and crisp checkering. The forearm is recheckered/refinished. Mechanically excellent. A very desirable factory engraved deluxe Model 1892 rifle that will be a great addition to even the most advanced Marlin or antique collections.
