Rating Definition:

Very fine as custom upgraded to current configuration with 90% blue finish, two small touched up areas on the underside of the receiver, scattered small dings, muzzle wear, and some scattered surface spotting. The replacement custom wood is also very fine with attractive figure, crisp checkering and some small dings and scratches. Mechanically excellent.
