Rating Definition:

Very fine, retaining 99% professionally reapplied blue finish on the barrels, smooth attractive silver patina on the action with some case colors in the protected areas, areas of scattered light spotting, and light handling evidence. The replacement wood is also very fine with a few minor marks and sharp checkering. Mechanically excellent.
