Rating Definition:

Very fine. The carbine retains 80% original blue finish with a few minor dings and scratches on the barrel and magazine tube, some areas of gray patina on the receiver, as well as some very light spotting. The buttplate retains 85% original blue finish with some minor oxidation. The wood is fine with a couple of small divots on the left front of the forearm and overall some scattered minor dings, dents and scratches. The markings are crisp and clear. Mechanically excellent.
