Rating Definition:

Fine, retaining 50% original blue finish overall, thinning on the receiver and magazine which has evenly faded to a brown patina. The barrel has the majority of remaining blue with some light spotting, and some light muzzle wear. Stock is very good with some light dents and scratches, and oil staining near the edges. Mechanically excellent.
