Rating Definition:

Fine, with 80% of the arsenal refurbished blue, showing areas of brown patina, finished-over shallow pitting on the barrel, spotting on the bolt, and mild wear and handling overall. The "623" proofed bolt handle is unnumbered, and the cocking piece number is worn and illegible. The bayonet lug is not fully attached, otherwise the stock is very good, with mild dents and scratches, and a small chip at the toe. Mechanically excellent.
