Rating Definition:

Exceptionally fine with 97% plus professionally restored blue finish on the barrel, some small dings visible under the blue, well defined markings, and mild slide retraction marks on the magazine tube and barrel. The receiver has 85% restored thinning case colors with some mild edge wear, light gray patina, and cycling marks on the receiver rails. The refinished wood is very fine with some small scattered dings, and mixed gray patina on the buttplate. Mechanically excellent.
