Rating Definition:

Fine as assembled to current configuration, with 80% of the arsenal parkerized finish, showing some bright rubbing on the barrel, mild edge wear and light handling marks. A few dings and dents are present on the rear sight. A small crack is forming on the interior of the upper handguard; otherwise, the stock is in very good condition, with some cracking of the leather and mild scuffs and dings overall. Mechanically excellent.
