Rating Definition:

Very good, with 75% plus blue finish, showing scattered specs of surface rust, some light wear and handling marks overall. The stock is very good, with some mild dents and scuffs an some gouging of the stock by the rear sight. The hand rest shows some scuffing and retains about half of the finish. The trigger needs adjustment, and the magazine hardware is absent, does not function.
