Rating Definition:

Very good plus, retains 30% original blue finish with the balance mostly a plum-brown patina, some scattered rough patches, and some bright grey edge wear. 20% nitre blue remains on the loading gate. The wood is good with some minor dings and scratches scattered throughout and some mild wear in handling areas. Mechanically excellent.
