Rating Definition:

Very fine, retaining 90% plus original blue on the barrel and receiver with some scattered light spotting and mild handling evidence. The wood is also very fine with some marks and scuffs and crisp checkering. The scope optics are clear with a slightly hazy ring around the edges and the tube shows some light oxidation. Mechanically excellent.
