Rating Definition:

Very good, retaining 80% original blue finish with most of the wear at the top of the breech, 80% case colors, mild handling evidence, and scattered light spotting. The wood is also very good with scattered dings and scratches, some chipping around the inlets, and crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent.
