Rating Definition:

Very good. The shotgun has an overall gray/brown patina with areas of some darker spotting and some small scratches and nicks. The receiver and lever have a few shadow traces of original case colors in the protected areas. The wood is also very good with well-defined checkering, small dings throughout, and some larger blemishes on the sides of the buttstock. Mechanically excellent.
