Rating Definition:

Very fine, retaining 95% original blue finish with some spotting around the breech sections, 98% coin finish with some discoloration on the right lock plate, and light handling evidence. The wood is very good with scattered minor marks, a group of two inch scratches on the left of the stock, and sharp checkering. Mechanically excellent.
