Rating Definition:

Very fine with 85% original blue finish, moderate slide retraction wear visible and some light surface spotting on the edges. The receiver has 70% original vibrant case colors with the balance aged to a dove gray patina with some scattered surface spotting. The wood is also very fine with some small dings and scratches, and mostly gray patina on the casehardened buttplate. Mechanically excellent.
