Rating Definition:

Excellent, retaining 98% original blue and coin finishes, areas of light staining on the action, and minor handling evidence. The stock is very fine with scattered light dings and scratches and crisp checkering. The case is very good with a broken strap. The extra barrels are excellent. Mechanically excellent.
